Car Covers

Have any of you guys found a company with a decent cover? Mine is stored inside, but I cover them anyway just for dust. I havent found any with a logo and none that specifically makes 458 cover let alone a 2011 one.

Thanks in advance

I use the Ferrari supplied indoor covers on all of the cars. You should be able to source one via your local dealer.

i don't cover my cars. generally speaking, every time you touch the paint you damage it. If i was gonna let it sit for months i might cover it. otherwise, i prefer to rinse or blow the dust off. haven't found covers to be that effective at keeping dust off if you are taking them on and off a couple times a week anyway. ymmv. Good to have one for winter storage though.

Mines a Ferrari cover that came with the car, always use it especially as I have a cat that loves to drive (Well sleep on/in) the Scuderia. The cover does a good job of keeping his paws off the paintwork. :-)

Cringing Dermot, picturing the cat on the hood of that beauty of yours, eeeesh. Mine didnt come with one for some reason, so I guess I need to ask about that. I keep it in a climate controlled garage, but I keep the cover on so vendors cant easily see what it is.

Thanks to both for the feedback

I have the same cat problem. It drives me crazy too cuz i can't figure out how he gets in there. there is only one interior door and it's always closed.

It was really bad when I traded in my 550, the cat had decided to sleep on the back parcel shelf of the 550 overnight, so when I got to the dealer it was covered in cat hair.. The sales manager did come out and say "so you have a cat then?" after he had inspected the car... I was so ashamed - LOL

The cats a big Ferrari fan, he's even been for drives with me. Last year I went out for a spin around the canyons where I live and after about 2 mins he appears from behind the seats and sits in the passenger seat... All this is happening at 70 mph around twisting bends... He cracks me up, he has absolutely no fear and seriously loves Ferraris. He never sits on any other of my cars, only the Red one! (he has good taste)
