Outdoor Over Needed due to lack of use

Post by Popey » Mon May 14, 2018 9:50 pm

Well its been months since I've used my Z4mR, I think it could be October if not longer :o . I did start it and move it January, and it did show the traction control light on permanently. I know I will need a new battery, I think I have an electrical issue causing a drain. I'm treating her to an inspection 2 in July at Darren Wood. The lack of use is a crying shame, it will also need an MOT and very good clean / detail! Couple of reasons for the lack of use, bad injury to my left knee :thumbsdown: and using my demo (auto) 420d Coupe :thumbsup: .

Anyway I cant keep on top of the bird Sh1T and now need an outdoor cover, please post recommendations. A custom cover would be great but open to options. Its to be good for all year round use, living by the coast it can can get a bit windy.

Thanks in advance :)

Fits well and no damage to my paint, but I did wax my car before putting it on. It feels like a quality item :thumbsup:

I got a Future cover from Covercar in Italy. Its stretchy, so fits snuggly and has straps if you specify them. My neighbour with an Aston used a heavier cover, and that wrecked his paint.
