I think there is a factory BMW cover in Kimberly-Clark's Noah fabric, which is supposedly lighter than their Evo4. I have an Evo4 cover for our old car and I like it except it's bulky. For the Z3 Coupe I got a custom Tyvek Plus (DuPont) cover from Coverking. It's reflects more sunlight because the outside is bright white, a plus in CA. I don't use it when it rains but it seems to keep light rain out. One thing is that their template for the coupe is a little snug, especially around the mirrors, which is good for keeping the cover on, but I worry about scratching. About the antenna, on my cover you could cut a hole but I didn't. I've been using it for 5 months and the antenna is fine. As for the paint don't worry because it bends back and only contacts the black plastic spoiler on top of the hatch. Good luck!


: Where can I go to get a car cover that fits our M Coupe well? Its got to be decently weatherproof, because we dont have a garage :( Ive read about Evolution 4, sounds like a decent material, any comments on it or others?

: Also, how do covers deal with the radio antenna on the roof? I know its springy, but it seems like a cover might push it all the way down and touch the paint in the back or make
: it gradually lose its springiness after a while...
