      Hey all, I am looking to find a nice quality car cover for my 2008 VW Rabbit. I was hoping could receive some feedback and experience from others on this matter. I need one soon, and would like it to hold out all precip (because I know some cheap ones get soaked and cling to the car), be relatively thick to help against hail / foreign objects, and of course nice to the paint! Also, it would be nice to have some tie down locations, because I do live in a windy city! Have any ideas, and where I could buy one?

      Thanks, Pete

      Thanks DieselDubber and ECS...

      However, maybe I didnt make myself clear enough. I have done internet searching, but I guess would like personal experience on this. Covers people bought, experiences on options and thickness, etc. Most sites don't show or give enough information in my option.

      Thanks, Pete

      I have covers for all our cars. I use one at the airport when I travel. Most of mine are CoverCraft.

      For outdoor use I prefer the Evolution 4 material. It's 4 layers thick so it helps with door dings, tree branches, etc. It is bulky but that's the price you pay for ding protection.

      Hope this helps.

      I can help with that! I have the genuine VW car cover for my GTI. I bought it a few years ago when it was actually rather expensive. I'm sure it has come down in price. It's a very good quality cover, even has a clear rectangle for the license plate. I am pretty sure it is the same one that would be for a Rabbit, fit like a glove.

      Here is the official VW site for their covers:

      The part number for mine was 1K0061205H.
