Hi all, I’ve just bought a 997 C2S (I’ll post some pictures when I collect it next weekend), I’m looking to buy a cover for it, as one of my garages has swallows nesting in it. Any advice on a good heavy duty indoor cover that is washable, I’ve never had a car cover before, so how much should I be looking to pay?

I'd be getting rid of the swallows. The indoor Porsche cover won't stop the droppings seeping through. You'll need an outdoor cover for that.

Hi,

If you happen to live near me I have a used Voyager Indoor / Outdoor Car Cover, it definitely fits a Porsche Boxster 987 - Model CCC333 (but seems to fit other models such as 911 too). You are welcome to try it!

It is in good condition, but has signs of use, mainly black marks where it meets the tyres. I would swap it for a case of beer.

Will probably get an outdoor cover, getting rid of the swallows unfortunately isn’t an option, it isn’t just one nest, there’s about twenty.
