How many of you guys garage your cars as opposed to keeping them outside? If kept outside, do you use a car cover?

my m3 is kept outdoors, i'm getting a car cover pretty soon, trying to decide between a NOAH or some other one from a company called "Wolf automotive" if any of you have any testimonials it'd be great :p

Both the IS and the wife's Caravan sleep in the garage. I also park in a garage at work so the millenium silver is not exposed to much sunlight

Hey, if I were hauling around thirty-two-thousand one dollar bills around with me I would baby them, too!

Somehow I'm gonna guess that the E55 AMG (Damn, I did it *again*) is also babied *just a little*

unfortunately I have to park outside the eight-plex I live in. It just Pi**es me off when I leave a bit late in the morning only to realize that the water sprinklers have already attacked my beautiful IS.

I park on the street and I have a car cover.

I bought the technalon Car cover.
It seems to work well, and it even protects your car from dings.

However, because it is thick, it will require large storage space. My car cover filled up 2/3 my trunk space.

I park outdoor for 24 hours, since I don't have garage at my boarding school. I have just got the cover and I will use it soon.

sambusik,
Try to figure out an altenative to parking there. You might already know this but I'll mention it anyway. If you have noticed mineral deposit stains on the sides of buildings from sprinkler systems most likely it will have the same effect on your car. I hope you get a cover or can park elsewhere. Good Luck.

Mine is parked in my driveway for all to see. There is a big tree above to keep most of the sunlight off the car, but it does get some dirt and bird droppings which require that I wash it often.

At work it is in a covered parking structure.

So - not much sunlight damage - but exposed to the "elements".

I'm parking on the other side of the street now to avoid the water sprinklers. Just means I have to be out of home every weekday by 7:30am because of restricted parking on that side of the street.

Honestly, I'd rather sleep a half hour less than have water stains all over the car!
