Could somebody please give me the heads-up on the best place to find a good quality breathable car cover for my soon-to-arrive SLK55 AMG? If possible, I would like one in Mercedes silver-grey with the Mercedes star and the AMG logo.
I brought one to use for the winter, used it one time. I no longer store my SLK for the winter. I drive it all year around. If anyone is interested, let me know.
Thanks, but I have something similar to this. I'm looking for something a little more presentable for longer winter storage.
It's been raining nearly every day here so I'll see if I can get it washed this weekend and put it on really quick, it's made for the SLK so it's a perfect fit.Do you think you could pop it on the car next time you clean it and take a couple of pics? I would then be interested in buying it from you.
Sorry, didn't get a chance to washed it this weekend, my wife is out of the country so I had my hands full with three kids Saturday morning. Had a wedding Saturday night and didn't go to bed until 4am in the morning. So my whole Sunday was wasted. I'll also be flying out of the country this Wednesday so it'll be awhile until I can take a picture.fantastic! thanks
Thanks, I was hoping it would be similar to a Ferrari factory cover. No not red, but silver soft cloth with a large ///AMG or Mercedes badge on the hood. It does fit the car well.Mine is a factory MB cover.
Here are some pix and the associated problem areas.
I use a bungee to secure the middle of the cover between the gromets, tossing it under the car. I also use a couple of small bungee's on the front of the cover (one on each wheel) otherwise a little wind will find your cover either beating up the car, or the cover off in Kansas somewhere with Toto.
Also, the wee bit of elastic along the lower edge is no match for even the lightest of wind, so if using in a garage fine, if using in any sort of wx at all, some bungee setup or some other means of securing is needed.
I haven't found any aftermarket covers yet, and this one fits so well that I'm inclined to buy another one and call the wear & tear a cost of leaving outside once in a while.
