Default car cover question

I looking for a cover while the car is parked in the garage. something to keep the dust & dirt off while it's sitting. It'll be covered all winter & in between driving it during spring , summer & fall. so, what's everybody using or like ? I do want the mirror pockets, custom fit for specific car & decent price. I don't think i need a 3 or 4 hundred dollar cover. thanks,

Since I have an '08, I bought one that comes with the antenna patch. If I were storing it inside, then
I would just remove the antenna... I did not need mirror pockets either.

If you want one MADE for your car, with pockets and all, then you're gonna pay $120+ for it.

I bought a $22.00 XL, because the Mustang is listed on the box, and it didn't fit. I had to go with the
XXL. SO, I spent $50.00 for a better XXL car cover, and it works fine. IT even came with the antenna
patch. You have to take the antenna off, put the cover on and finalize fitment. Then cut the hole for
the antenna, and patch both sides with the provided patch. If I were storing it LONG term, I 'd just
take the antenna off, and toss it in the trunk, go to Ollie's and buy a $22.00 XXL cover.

You have an S550, so you don't have that long mast antenna... They got rid of that in 2010. I was thinking
on a power antenna, so I won't need the hole in the cover... Seeing as you're storing it inside, you only need
a simple $22 (Ollies) XXL cover. However, it's your money, if ya want the pockets, then it's gonna be a lot more
than $50.00

I store mine inside, and have a cheap car cover also. Just there to keep the dust off.
