    If you are going to use it regularly, buy OE cover -

    White Tyvek is a premium fabric material with superior quality used for premium car covers. It protects the vehicle from a possible damage to external paint from harsh sun, rain & scratches caused by animals/birds and even dust particles.

    Adding to Ravi's point, it is a very soft cover with a lower propensity to cause micro-scratches compared to a regular car cover.
    One downside I find is that it puts a fair amount of pressure on the antenna, and is a tight fit on the car because of the antenna.

    i have the above oem car cover. i made a cut near the antenna and used the cover in which this car cover is packed to stitch over the antenna hole.

    this is a very good quality cover.

    but stupid fiat forgot to make a hole for the antenna. shear stupidness.

    Italia, your agression with Fiat is so evident ever since the headlight episode :).

    lol :) happened the same while doing every mod. even the headunit ones.

    actually first time i searched the antenna hole for long time in such a big cover. so i was damn pissed off.

    thankfully they have given those side mirror slots.

    Dear Italia,
    I had asked the same hole thing for antenna to fiat sales guy and he twisted the antenna in a very rude manner to show me the flexibility.
    Hence hole is not needed in the cover.

    It's strange that Linea cover does not have the antenna slot. I have got punto OE cover and it has got antenna slot.

    My antenna broke after about 5 months. I think the cleaner or some miscreant broke it, but I do believe that the cover played its part by making the antenna weak. I think I'll make that hole.

    Friends,

    BTW, what does OEM stands for? Abbreviation?
