Can't say anything about their car covers, except that I think the MB covers are made of Noah fabric.

+1 on Covercraft. I have an Ultratect and Reflectech for my 968. I've had evolution and Noah fabric covers on several cars and wasn't impressed. Once the evolution got dirty, every breeze would let dust filter down through the fabric and the Noah leaked after the first winter and disentegrated after the second.

I am leaning towards something like the Covercraft but have concerns that the layer that is actually contacting the paint will hold dust and grit, thus scratching the paint when used.

Probably have to be a little mindful when using it and not drag it against the vehicle.

Thanks again.

I never cover the car if it's dusty or dirty, as much to keep the inside of the cover clean as much as keeping the cover from rubbing dirt into the finish. I have one of the California Duster things that I dust the car with before I cover it, even if I just drive home from the car wash.

I also have Glossit paint correction/costing. And I apply their detail spray after every wash to keep the coating protected. I think I put more scratches on the finish doing that with less than perfectly clean microfiber cloths than my covers put on.

For two years now my 968 had been stored outside under, on occasion, a foot of snow, and it's doing great in its third birthday. Only a slight white powder on the finish when I removed the cover in the spring. (Very carefully.)
