Car Cover - Spider

Not long had the spider and thinking about the winter weather. I do not have a garage and want to buy a car cover to protect her as she won't be used much in the winter months. Can anyone recommned a decent car cover. I have seen one on ebay that is tailored to the car and it is about 62.

Any recommendations?

I have a similar requirement. Covers concern me (damp, mildew etc.) so I guess a fully breathable one is the way forward?

62 sounds reasonable but not sure of quality etc.

I found these which are breathable but quite expensive @ 150+

I am also interested in the answer to this. Want to cover the Gtv up for the winter but don't want to get conned into buying something that doesn't work or indeed causes more harm than good!

Would appreciate any recommendations too

Used one off the bay of "e" last year, circa 25. They are kind of OK but as soon as you get any moisture on the car you can end up with the cover sticking to the roof when it is frosty, and that is a "heart in mouth" moment peeling it off a convertible. If the car is not going to be used much, as you said @Bazdavies, then this is probably ok but for daily driver territory they are no use.
