Nice, but doesn't seem suited for outdoor parking in India. Plus, it would be too cumbersome to use on a daily basis. I guess its a viable option only for those who own classic / exotic cars, and drive them on a less frequent basis.

I agree with you GTo, plus you need a fan to inflate it, so i guess this is an alternative to garage parking, but definitly not for india.

nice thing to use but definitely not an easy and practical one,guess it needs a lot of space and patience.however i wonder if i can have such a thing while driving,so that my car is protected all the time from the autos,etc in this delhi traffic!

Nice shell, but as everybody said, not suited for indian car scene, if not the car, the capsule would certainly go stolen everyday.

Yeah its not for daily use car but quite good if you want to leave the car in Garage for a while. Like i am always worried about rats, dust etc while leaving the car/bike for more than a month or two. It will solve this problem.

Come to think of it, you'd probably find your car sans capsule cover in the morning! When mere logos & badges get flicked from cars, such a novelty cover won't last more than 24 hours in India.

Put your car inside a greenhouse for the paint to bake? Sounds good to me. where do I sign up?
