    Car Cover

    I'm out in Southern California for the next 5 months. My WRX has always been in a garage, but I don't have access to one while I'm out here. I'd like to give it some level of protection, at least from the sun. Can anyone recommend a cheap-ish car cover that will last 5 months and not blow off?

    Thanks in advance.

    Just slap some SPF 30 on it and you'll be good.

    Use Coppertone sport spray...not oily and doesn't rub off when your car starts to sweat


    Unfortunately, I don't see a WRX as something worthy of even needing a car cover. It's a car...you're going to drive it uncovered, so what's parking it covered going to achieve? Just my thoughts though.

    I've kept a car covered outdoors for over a decade. I've driven the car maybe one month per year, max, during this century. No problems with the car's paint etc. at all during all this time. I simply buy whatever car cover my local store has -- usually the cheapest -- and change them every two years or so. Get one with pockets for the mirrors and use a rope or bungie around each mirror. Use ropes and bungies on the nose and tail to make sure it's not going anywhere.
