Car covers?

Anyone got any recommendations for a good quality outdoor car cover? I haven't been able to find ways to dissuade the local fox population from using the M135i as an access ramp for getting over our garden wall, so the only solution seems to be to cover the car to avoid it getting scratched.

I used one of these when I kept the TVR outside.

You'll need to keep the 1 series clean though as you don't really want to be putting a cover on a dirty car.

Put a hole in the wall

As has been said, car covers need to go on clean cars and also need to be silky smooth to avoid scratching.

I saw some stuff recently which is supposed to keep foxes away - it is a bit like catnip but presumably stronger - it was in the local garden centre

That stuff doesn't work - I tried it.

But then his car would be covered in cats!

Shotgun probably the best option.

More humanely you can get water sprays that have a sensor to detect movement at night and squirt a jet of water at them to shock them into buggering off. Again I don't know how well it works. I hear a pack of hounds is more effective but sadly illegal.

These guys. They do all our optional car covers and the quality is exceptional. Even our second-quality workshop covers are excellent.

You need a pack of hounds.

No hounds, I'm afraid. You can, however, shoot a fox in the face with a licensed weapon with no ramifications (aside maybe from discharging a firearm in an urban location) but shoot it with two dogs by your side and you're in big trouble.
