    Tequipment car cover

    My car is always parked in the garden under an aluminum shade. It seldom rains, but there is heat, dust and humidity.

    Is it a good idea to cover a car when travelling for over a week?

    if so, shall I get the Tequipment 'Outdoor' or 'Indoor' car cover considering the above?

    My dealer only has the 'Indoor' available in stock, and I'm travelling next Sunday for over two weeks. Shall I stick with the 'Indoor' cover?

    Any experiences with either cover would be highly appreciated.

    Re: Tequipment car cover

    It's pretty nice, I have 2 - one for the Cayenne and one for the C4 (both indoor). They certainly are not useful if it rains as the material (a sort of very light green,soft silky material) will get filthy.

    Although they are ridiculously expensive, the best thing about them is that they fit EXACTLY onto the car - unlike some cheaper 3rd party generic car covers. They also look pretty cool with a nice, huge Porsche badge sitting dead centre on the engine compartment (trunk).

    What I do is use the P cover as the 'underlay' and a cheaper Generic car cover on top of that! Works perfectly - so the car is nice and snug PLUS water proofed!

    Re: Tequipment car cover

    I agree with mish. The indoor car cover looks neat and first and foremost, fits like a glove. The material seems to be very sooft and gentle to the clearcoat. I got mine as a freebie on delivery day!

    I wouldn't use it outdoors though, unless you have a second one on top as suggested.

    Re: Tequipment car cover

    Personaly, I dont think its a good idea for short periods and if the car is parcked in the shade. Don't forget that ever time that you install or remove the cover the dust trapped inside of it will scratch the paint. Just my 2 halal

    Re: Tequipment car cover

    agree with yarub1, it must be thoroughly cleaned before re reinstalled

    Tequipment car cover vs. Coverking

    I have the same issue. Need inside cover most of the time and ocassional outside.

    Has anyone compared the Tequipment vs. Coverking custom car cover?

    Tequipment is perfect fit and Porsche badged (I think this could draw unwanted attention outdoors); the Coverking claims perfect fit and is 50% the price.

    Suggestions? Thanks a lot!
