Need a cheap car cover? $22.67 at WalMart...
I have been renovating my house so money has been tight, not to mention the holidays are coming up. Having said all that, I didn't want to invest $200+ in a BMW car cover this year.
So for the heck of it, I was at Wal Mart and looked at what they had for car covers.
They had a car cover for $22! I did a double take on the price.
The company that produces the covers, Budge Industries (funny name ) is out of PA. I am sure for $22 it is made in China.
They only had a size "3" which was one size larger than the box suggested for the Z4...I bought it anyway, for $22 how could I go wrong? I unboxed it and put it on and it fits great! It's funny as this thing sells for double on the companies website...
I am usually a firm believer of getting the right product for the job...in this case though, this cover fits great, you walk out the door for under $25. The fabric is actually good quality -- this is an indoor cover only.
For those who want something to cover their car with, go check it out and save the rest of the money for your kids this Christmas.
No, it will not fit nearly as nice as the BMW car cover or a custom one, but for a quick fix, you can't beat the price...

Does anyone have a car cover that protects against snow and ice and if you do, does it work well? I'm thinking of getting one since my car sits outside all year around and during winter, I get really tired of having to scrap off all the snow and ice. Would getting a cover be worth it? What brands do you recommend?

What about a carport? I currently live where we get much more snow than Missouri and I personally think a car cover would be a big pain. I do have a neighbor who covers her front window on her vehicle with a small tarp though and that seems to work ok to keep the front window clear. I'd think if you had a large car cover you would have to drag it off then shake it out and that is where I think it could get into more work than it's worth. Never tried it though.

If you will be using your car during the winter, don't bother with a cover. We get so much sleet and freezing rain, as well as ice, that it will just glue the cover to your car. We tried one and it shredded after a short time from pulling on it. Just get used to starting your car 15 minutes before you plan to leave (make sure it is locked with a separate key!) to allow the windows to de-ice. Buy a long-handled scraper with a brush on one end and wait out the winter!

I made the mistake of getting a car cover a few winters ago. Firebll is right-- any kind of moisture between teh cover and the car will glue the thing to the surface. Now, what does work for me is a cover just for the windshield, something that's anchored by putting the two ends in the gap created between the windshield and the open car door. Logically, it didn't make sense, since the same principle that applied to the car cover should apply, but it doesn't...and it makes getting going in the morning (or after work) much easier.

Thanks for the replies, guys. Yeah, I guess I knew it was a bad idea from the start considering freezing rain happens a lot here, I was just hoping there would be another way.

It will work ok on snow and light ice, but when there is a 4" build up of ice there is NO WAY you are going to be able to get that thing off. Of course, you aren't really going to be driving anywhere anyway. LOL
I used to use one all the time and it is a PITA to put on and take off all the time.

Go to Walmart and get a cover that will fit your car, they work wonderful for ice and snow.

My boyfriend does the same thing up in S. Dakota. In just a couple of minutes his windshield is clear and he is ready to go; meanwhile I'll be parked next to him and still scraping my previously uncovered but snowed/iced windshield.

I think the cover just for the windshield would be the best thing. The whole car cover sounds like a good idea until I realized that I have nowhere to put the thing once I get it off. Am I just gonna drive around with a giant wet tarp in my backseat or trunk? And if I can't get if off when it freezes, that would pretty much defeat the purpose of me having a cover in the first place.
