Hey everyone, I need some help with choosing a car cover. Does anyone have a car cover for their car? It looks like GM does not make a car cover for our car, however their is one for the CTS V. I am Looking to purchase one however their are so many to choose. I do not have a garage and want to store it outside for the winter. Any insight? Thanks

Try coverking.com. They have some very weather resistant covers. I had one on another car that I stored outside all winter long, and it lasted for well over 5 years. (The outside is still good, but the felt liner on the inside started to dry up and crack). But that was in central MI, so the conditions were pretty harsh.
Whatever you get needs to be able to keep out moisture. Trapping moisture under a wet cover is the kiss of death for your paint job.
Plan on spending $300 - $500 for a nice one.

I ordered one from here years ago for my 240Z. It fit perfectly.

There are many types of breathable fabrics available. The big difference in price between the cheap covers (and tarps) and the good covers is due to the breathable fabrics. Never ever cover a car with a non-breathable cover. Condensation build-up under the cover can do lots of damage.
I have the max cover from empire its a 3 layer cover made from Tyvek developed by DuPont.

:thumbsup:+1 on empire covers, I live down in south texas where the cars get 'burn your skin hot' the sun cover keeps it at least 60 degrees cooler in the summer.
