Hi everyone, I'm sure this has been asked many times before, but the mini is due a new cover for the outdoors. I used a halfords all seasons one from about 4 years ago which seemed to have worked fine but apparently the new ones are rubbish. So, which covers offer the best protection whilst not being overly expensive (<£150).

 

Cheers

One of the best, even has little “ ears “ for your mirrors.

I bought one of the Halfords ones last year to replace an old one. They now do an extra small size (still too big for a mini!) and the quality seems much better than the old Halfords one that it replaced.

I use a Coverzone Voyager Car Cover, very impressed so far: https://www.cover-zo...r-1959-to-2000/

Every car covered do a breathable one for the mini and also the Estates... I've used one in 60mph winds, we put a bungee cord into the two tent peg holes, so it tightened the middle of the cover even more than the two luggage straps. Strap it up as much as you can.

I'd also suggest putting something soft over the car before fitting the cover so you cant scratch the paint.

On my second. My estate came with one, but after 6 years of outdoor use it had dried up and the cats had got to it. So ive bought another, definetley up to the job.

For the price, considerer the cheap one sold at Minispares. It is soft and if very damaged it is not expensive to replace
