Not my first Evolution 4 car cover, I buy them for all of my cars (convertibles), primarily for sun protection. I get about 36 months out of them in constant use, due to the intensity of the mid-atlantic sun. I check the web each time I need to buy one and Auto Anything consistantly has the best deal. The fit is good, snug enough that it requires a methodical approach to putting it on the car which is good, it doesn't blow off and the cover truly looks custom fitted, not an embarrasment to have in the driveway. Evolution 4 is not a compact cover for storage, think rolled up sleeping bag minimum. I usually loosely fold and toss it in the trunk. If the cover is wet, there is no problem with putting it back on the car to dry later, they readily 'breath'. Two of my older convertibles would normally experience some water infiltration in heavy rains but with the Evolution 4 cover in place that never happens, it's all wicked away thus I will routinely put the cover on a wet car when its raining. Never any issues with paint discoloration or mildew. I thoroughly detail each of my cars at least twice a year and wax more frequently. Between that and the Evolution 4 car covers, they all look like new. More importantly, the convertible tops have not shrunk, faded or cracked and the seams have held up as well. When used in a garage, it's thick enough to provide excellent protection from scratches and bumps. Recommended.
