car cover for 02


Recommended Posts

I previously had one of the "Ultimate" BavAuto covers and was quite underwhelmed with it. The elastic around the bottom lost its elasticity within a year so it flapped around a lot in any wind. The water resistance also degraded quickly. I also had a Budge cover for a while and found this to be just barely okay, but by FAR the best cover I've had is the California Car Cover I now have, it's the Noah model. Great fit, excellent water resistance, really just an excellent cover. Yes, it costs more, but in my opinion it was well worth the extra money considering how much I've got invested in the car.

I've always had the Evolution 4 Covers for outside use, however I understand that the Noah cover material provides equal or even better protection, although it's lighter weight...I kinda like "heavy" for outside use.

Here is what Bavarian Autosport (www.bavauto.com) says,

Like Evolution4, NOAH fabric is engineered for exceptional resistance to rain, snow, dust and UV rays. At the same time it lets the paint and finish 'breathe', allowing moisture trapped under the cover to evaporate. The exterior layer defends against scratches, dirt, bird droppings, etc. while the soft-touch inner layer pampers the finish. And NOAH weighs just 4 1/2 ounces per square yard so it's easier to put on and take off than Evolution4.

I'll suggest paint.

A car cover will cause far more damage than no car cover.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
