Found 19th Oct 2011
Thought i would post this as it seems a great deal for a car cover with elasticated edges.
Your looking at £20-£30 at argos which you have to tie up the ends or £49 for the elasticated one.
They also have some other good deals on car accessories such as axel stands £9.99, Aluminium roof bars £29.99, Wheel trims £9.99 {:-)

If your shopping at Lidl, chances are you will probably want to cover your hideous banger too! Genius.

Talking of hideous, Swindon is near the top of most lists.

Hahahaha trolled by a troll! Made me laugh and was always gonna get flamed!
Just picked one up in beeston, got loads left in 3 sizes!
Was just looking for one of there, thanks for the post. Nothing wrong with Lidl either!
Always like the thought of buying one of these but all the scallywags would nick it or the wind would blow it away if left on the car on the driveway and I've no room for the car to go in the garage 'cos its full of DIY kit (the wife complains if its kept indoors), kids cr@ppy bikes, car cleaning kit, gardening stuff and general junk.

Does anyone actually have a garage and have the space to park their car in it or do you leave the cover on the car outside?

Good price - thanks
I've been waiting for the aldi car bike racks to come around again, got ours nicked over the summer!
Fantastic if you're a magician
If these are just a plain waterproof cover, they won't do your paintwork much good. Grit and cr*p generally tends to build up on the inside and the movement of the cover will wear away at the paintwork. I had one years ago (Argos jobbie) and it was better to leave the car in the rain.

Good for stopping the screen getting iced up in winter though.

If you value the cars paint work never use one of these covers outside as the wind and material make a very nice sandpaper job on the paintwork ,I can only recommend to use one of theese covers as a dust protector etc for long term storage of your car in a garage.

Very true - good advice for the unwary.
The state of my car, i think i would be better gluing one on permanent

Those roof bars are a great price - shame I already have a Thule set or I'd have been all over them for that.

Trouble is where you going to store a 20x20ft wet & icy kite at seven in the morning? Think i will just send the mrs out with a kettle full of hot water while i keep the engine running (_;)

Oh, the irony... People take the P our of these 'bargain basement' stores on a bargain hunting website where they hope to buy stuff on the cheap. X)

HAD one from Halfords, froze to the car on a cold winter night - had to leave to work and forcefully removed cover instead of waiting a few months for spring --> ended up with 4 massive tears (2 on my face, 2 in the cover).

And agree: bad for paintwork indeed. Buy an inflatable garage.

End up with a cracked windscreen?
Its a good idea but do you have to cut your own holes to see out of the windows?

I thought that cracked windscreen thing was a myth - been using the kettle/hot water for years on my windscreen and heve never cracked the screen
Good price,but a strong wind and it will be gone.

So long as the water isn't too hot the windscreen will be ok.

Wouldn't it not be easier to put your expensive, valuable car in the garage (if you have one) and get rid of all the worthless junk currently filling it?

OK, as long as nobody tries to drive off in it and run over your legs when you try to stop them.

Yeah, that should be fine, although if you have a chip, we all know what Gavin from Autoglass will have to say about it!

Too right! The neighbours in my hideously middle class estate...er, I mean "community".. must be sick to death of my ancient little Vauxhall Nova with more dent than body work! This will keep the neighbours appeased nicely They are just jealous cos our drive can take more cars than their drive, and one day my car will be "Vintage"....

...or more likely scrap metal. I love being a chick in a dick car!

PS the sandpaper thing, sounds like an improvement to me Excellent! Free paint removal!
Looks exactly the same from Argos that i paid £27.99 for only a few weeks ago, if only One word of warning for anybody buying these, invest in some bungee ties (got mine from B&Q) or it will get blown away easily.

I am going to buy one for my brand new Mercedes C220. You should refrain from making this type of cynical comment. Don't forget, this is a deals site.
Used one last year,paintwork was A1 after 6 weeks sitting in the drive but the brakes rusted up so this year no cover and going to drive it regardless of the weather.

How frightfully common. I'm sending my butler to pick one up for my Bentley.
ANYTHING THAT IS SHAPED LIKE A ZEPLIN IS ONLY EVER GOING TO TAKE TO THE SKIES lol, sorry caps on.

I have never managed to own a bbq cover, patio table cover, chimnea cover or car cover for very long because of our weather. Where do they all end up? Is it the same place where missing socks go?
