Has someone tried this one ?
I have made one for inside usage but the fabric only was much more expensive

I would be very pleased to find a good "water-proof" car cover for a Bagheera. This advert makes it sound good (it would, wouldn't it?) but the returns policy also sounds good if you are not satisfied with it.

I have purchased a number of "good" covers over the years and none has survived very long. One at least was double that price! Most came from eBay.

Difficult to believe that it is made specifically for the Bagheera! It might be worth asking about the dimensions.

If you decide to buy it would you like to get it delivered to my house and collect it next week? Alternatively you could check out the two covers I already have here before making your buying decision.

PS A thought... Would the risk of air travel disruption to your travel plans due to Icelandic volcano ash make it easier for you to persuade your boss to let you bring a Matra to the UK and stay over for Prescott?

I'm affraid it wouldn't.
I was supposed to fly to Edinburgh this morning and ...  ???
Maybee tomorrow by train  :D

So think it would be wiser to use the money for something else.
I might have idea's for that.

If British Airways could persuade their striking cabin crew to choose eruption day that would save everybody hassle! It is so quiet under the flight path these days. A true silver lining.

Sorry --- just a bit off topic!

I bought a car cover for a Porsche Boxster that fitted really well on my Murena.

It was made by Classic Additions, bought it off ebay. It was used (seller had already sold the car). 

I think if you can get a good used quality Boxster cover would be better. (Some of these high end Porsche covers are over 300 new).
