Red GM Camaro Car Cover

Anyone have this cover? If so, how does it hold up outside? It's pretty pricey, but looks awesome. I would like to get an outdoor car cover for rain and crap falling from trees when I'm away on the weekends visiting people and not at home in my garage. I am a bit concerned about this cover in a way too though because it's pretty flashy and may attract some attention by the wrong people (i.e., criminals or kids looking to mess with sh*t) compared to a plain gray or tan one.

Please let me know your thoughts!

Unless you want a lot of paint that needs correction, you need to put a clean cover on a just washed car...even then the wind can cause some damage...so being away means driving your car and it will be dirty when you try to cover it...cover may not be a good idea...
I would only use one on a garage queen that is just washed and is going to sit...if it is driven every day or two I would not bother with a cover...my 2...

Hmm this is a great point. So you think I would be causing more damage to the paint when covering a mildly dirty car versus leaving it exposed to the elements (at my family's cottage there are huge trees that drop all kinds of crap on the car)??

I have it and would not do it again. Ordered it with the car. There are better ones out there for the money.
