And so to bed!

Postby Peter-S » Mon Nov 05, 2018 12:28 am

As Nige was kind enough to mention them I popped in to Aldi the other day and picked up one of their car covers for a tenner. Today I put the 2.8 to bed and hopefully this will keep the dust and crap off that usually accumulates over winter despite the car being mostly under cover.

Nice one Peter. Its great to see a picture of these Aldi covers in use. Amazing value aint they. The only thing thats not so good about this cover is its hiding your lovely 2.8i underneath so we cant see it :cry: :lol: :lol:

I must say though it really does cover your 2.8i a treat. Very impressive sir. A great find by nige :applaud:

The £10 covers are a bargain and look better than I thought they would.
Don't forget to take the cover off every now and again on a dry day to let the car air.

Aldi never ceases to amaze, great store! They had OBD readers in recently for less than £15. Sold out very quick.
