Here's a bit of an odd one, and would like some advice if anyone has some.

I'm in the market for a car cover, for use outside as my usage of Jackson will be dropping significantly in the next couple of weeks. MINI seem to do one for the Clubman, but don't seem to have one for the core car of the brand.

No idea Phil.

I only use mine once a week now and TBH not a fan of covers so it stays outside with Tom's coating he put on when I got it.

We had one on our caravan at first and it did cause some minor marks due to wind movement and then condensation, yes it was covered for longer spells! So throw it away and gave it a really good waxing and no issues.

Maybe modern ones are better?

Any cover will cause scratching. Even a tiny bit of dirt will be dragged across the paint when it moves in the wind. This is especially prevalent when it's cold/icy and if you've got trees near where you're parked.

Modern paint finishes are well protected from UV light etc. Your best bet is to just leave it bare, remove bird poo asap and clean it periodically.
