Car Cover

Did anyone buy or is using outdoor car cover for the W205 ? Either 3rd party or OEM ?

A point to consider

1) If you put a cover on a car that is not very clean, the cover will grind the surface dirt and dust into the paint as the wind moves the cover back and forth

It sure would have to be real windy for that to happen. It's better than being baked by the sun.

Here is what I got:

C17812GK Covercraft Custom Fit Car Cover: 2015 Mercedes-Benz C300 4Matic Short wheelbase with 2 mirror pockets (Evolution - GK Gray) Size G3

The fit is perfect, and the quality is high. The only thing I don't like is that it is bulky. I paid $207. I will sell you mine if you want it - only used one day.

Thanks for the offer but I am not sure if the it fits the C450 with the slight difference in the body kit from the C300. Also, I am looking for the light fabric instead of the heavy mainly I just want the car to be less dusty.
