Putting an indoor car cover on and off will cause scratches and marring over time. You're best leaving it naked in the garage unless you have ppf/care about scratches then cover it.

Bullshit, not with the right cover and enough smarts to make sure you put it on a CLEAN vehicle.
Since the OEM stretch type in unobtainium, I went with the high end lined/stretch from covercraft, not cheap but worth every penny.
You want to avoid, like the plague, the unlined cotton/ canvas types.

looking for an indoor car cover too for my new 22’ spider.
would be nice to have an R8 logo on it...or the
one which has the Tony Stark look like on the gen 1.
the OEM only has the rings on it.

anyone knows a good brand or where to buy?

thanks

I would check eBay. I was able to buy an aftermarket cover for my AMG GTS for relatively cheap last year when I was storing it for winter. Will likely look there for my R8 in 4 months time when winter rolls around.

Quite happy with my lined Covercraft. I wash the car and put it away clean. I have swinging barn type doors on my garage, and no matter how hard I try to get them to seal, dirt blows in and coats the rear of the car. The cover is the perfect solution.

Unless the car is freshly washed and dried before covering - any cover can scratch paint. Heck the softest microfibre mit can scratch a car with soapy sudds. Just make sure its cleaned before covering.

curious why people put a car cover on a car parked in a garage, to avoid collecting dust?
When you own a black car you get a 1st hand report on exactly how much crap is actually floating around every day, especially during pollen season if you live away from a city center.
When away, the lined covercraft provides an element of protection.

Like I said, my car gets covered with crap. Swinging doors, and a prevailing wind that hammers sand and dirt all the time. Despite foam, rubber seals, etc, it gets in. So, don't cover it, and it's coated. I'd rather wash and cover than have it get the perpetual sand blast.
