car cover


Model: 996 4s, Year:2003, Mileage:51,000, Type of use:Street use only
I live outside Washington, DC and park the car in the driveway -- no garage. I hand wash it every week and remove bird poop by soaking it with a small section of clean cotton rag, then spraying off the remainder. I pick off fallen leaves every day. My mechanic says I should use a car cover to protect the interior. I am very suspicious of outdoor car covers -- thinking that I have to have a perfectly clean & dry car before I put a car cover on, and the car cover inside has to be clean, dry and soft before it goes on the clean, dry car. My location gets only a few hours of summer sun, more in the winter when the trees are bare. In nearly three years since I've had the car, the interior still looks original -- I don't drive it much -- only 14,000 miles since I bought the car in December 2007. So, car cover or not? And if so, which? I combed through the archives and didn't find much -- I guess I'm one of the few whose car braves the elements! Thanks for any advice. Hilary Smith
