I'm currently using a Tyvec cover that I found on ebay for a bargain PREMIER CAR COVER SIZE 3 TYVEK NEW IN BOX NIB USA MADE 14'-16' Midsize | eBay
. I usually use a Budge sortafabric (it's sort of fabric, but isn't- recycled whatever they found pretending to be material), but this one has a extra year on the warranty. I use a cover because the car lives outside, and I hope it cools it a bit in the lousy Central Valley sunshine that's supposed to be so pleasant, which I suppose it is if you love 110° and your car isn't black. It also catches the bird crap.
To manage it, I grit my teeth really hard, lean all the way down there to pull the elastic (all the way around the bottom of the cover) free from the front bumper, free it from the mirror (no pockets), walk around the back and around to clear the other mirror, cussing the whole way. I then wad it unceremoniously into a sort of mushroom and throw it on one of the other covered cars in my automotive garden. Foul language seems to help.
Of course, if it's been breezy (over 2 knots), I have to go over to the neighbor's front yard and retrieve the cover before driving. Just the nature of the material (or, synthetic) world.
I usually use the #3 Budge cover from Walmart because it costs twenty bucks. In this sun, nothing lasts more than two years. I'd never consider the Honda cover because the cost (as with virtually all Honda parts and accessories) is absolutely absurd. I guess they think they're Porsche.
I've been using covers since the days of MG Mitten, on my Datsuns.
I suppose I should worry about the cover using its collection of grit to damage the finish, but I worry more about trucks throwing rocks through the windshield. I already have a broken fog light. In comparison, a bit of grit doesn't make the radar.
Oh, and if your car's nice and clean and waxed and pretty, the cover loves to play ride-the-slide with you. Snagging the rear edge on the shark fin will give you a slight advantage.
