      Car Cover( Completely Water Proof )

      Guys i recently bought a car cover from one of the shops here in Bangalore after it was recommended by one of my friends
      The cover cost me around 1500 and its really worth each and every penny.
      In the past i used a car cover which i bought online for around 900 which gave away in less than a month.
      Then i bought another one from Maruti show room for around 900 which was really good but unfortunately the street dogs tore it off.(Dont know why)
      Then i bought this one.Its really heavy and comes in a free size.covers the whole car and has elastic band through and through the border.
      It has 2 layers one is the outer one and then the inner one which is completely water proof.
      I have tested it and its really preventing even the moisture to seep in.
      I bought it from Kammanahalli and since it was really a product which was worth the buck i thought of sharing the same
      In case someone needs one let me know and i will share the shop name and location.

      Can I know how this test was done? I was using car covers for a very long time and since then haven't been able to find anything which is completely water-proof which costs less than 3-4k. Have used most of the local and also the MPG ones (bloody thing was 2k in 2006). None of them were good and did not last long.

      Well to be frank its been almost 2-3 weeks that i bought it and since then it has rained a couple of times and due to that there is some amt of accumulation of water on the top which stays there till the time i drain it off and after i do that i checked the car surface and it was dry.
      Overall also the water doesn't stay on the cover ,its either in form of beads which drops off as soon as you shake the cover or it simply drains off.
      Now i am not sure if 2 weeks is enough to conclude that its completely water proof
      But since i have moved from a cover which was only water resistant i am finding it pretty amazing.
      Moreover i am not sure about the price of the cover for other sedan size cars which i am sure will be in the range you mentioned
      He said that for small sized cars like mine and i10 and alto this cover will do and the price was 1500
      But for bigger cars it will be more
      If there is anything else you want me to check please let me know .that will help me as well as other team members.
      Moreover the life of the cover depends on lot of things and cannot be ascertained even if the cover is worth 5k .
      Its just like shoes even a 10k worth pair can go worthless in no time.
