Getting a car cover??

Just wondering what everybody thinks about using a car cover?
Was thinking of getting on for the winter coming. Help protect it?
Keep snow, ice and crap off of it while it's in the driveway and not using it?

Anybody use car covers? Pros? Cons?

What do ya think?

There's really no cons to a car cover except for putting it on and taking it off. Cover craft sells awesome car covers. I can get you one from them with a lifetime warranty, lock and cable system, and free shipping. Just let me know what car you have so I can give you a price.

If your cover or car is dirty, any cover will help scratching.

A car is a expesive object even a civic. Spending a few hundred dollars on a car cover wouldn't be too bad on a 15,000 item.

I have one on my car, and my car is sitting in my garage. It's worth it if you value your car as much as I do.
