California Custom Car Cover has several lines for different uses (indoor only, indoor/outdoor, water resistant, etc.) depending upon your needs. Available in several colors with or without custom embroidery. Not cheap, but certainly worth the $$. I bought the StormWeave model & couldn't be happier.

Covercraft Noah is a very good car cover. I have one for the Corvette and the SS. Very good fit.

I've used California car covers for over 15 years- there the best in my opinion.

Both California and Covercraft use Kimberly Clark's NOAH material and both have a good fit so you can't go wrong with either brand

NOAH material is excellent. Any cover manufacturer using this material is good. Just shop for the best price and you're done.

I got a Weathershield HP from covercraft. They rate it equal to the NOAH except in thermal and dent protection. It's lighter and packs smaller but it does cost about 100 more. I'm quite satisfied so far. (indoor/outdoor)

Don't waste your money on the oem cover like I did. It's made out of some tent like material with rough thread stitching and absolutely scratched the crap out of my clear coat last year, won't use that cover anymore!

If you cover it dirty, you risk scratching no matter what cover you choose. If you keep your car clean, scratching should not be a problem.
