    So far I've not received the Z8 cover that was ordered for me as a Christmas gift. I was sent a note saying there was a delay in production. Has anybody received theirs yet?

    Who sent the note? I have tried to reach Van Chau ([email protected]) at CoverKing, since these were supposed to be shipped in January... but he has not yet replied.

    It was basically a receipt to my wife in the form of a card indicating the cover was in production. I've not attempted to contact anybody yet. I wasn't sure if it was just me or all buyers who had not yet seen the cover.

    It seems that there was some kind of staff lapse, but it'll taken care of very shortly I am assured.

    Your nudge must have worked. My wife got a call yesterday. Seems there was an issue with the fabric. Covers to be completed and delivered perhaps within a week!

    The Coverking Fisker car cover

    Okay, the cover has arrived, and the quality is... meh. It fits like a pair of baggy mom jeans. I know, I know: It's just a car coveróbut come on, it's a thousand-dollar car cover.

    It would probably be less disappointing if I hadn't first peeled off the OEM BMW cover that fits like an Isotoner glove.

    Anyway, maybe somebody will swoon when they see it at the estate sale:

    Perhaps you can add the names of those of us who already bought the damn things in order to reach a quorum...

    I've received mine. I completely agree with Satch's comments. With some effort it can be smoothed out over my car and is reasonable in proportion. It's almost too tight for the mirrors. I have a passion for sailing and have seen both poorly fitting canvas covers and exquisite craftsmanship in sails. This falls somewhere in the middle. For a thousand bucks you'd think they'd throw in a bag to store it in when it's off the car! I've debated whether to try and return it or just accept that I've blown good money on speculation. That I've done before...

    "I've debated whether to try and return it or just accept that I've blown good money on speculation."

    Exactly, Dan: I figure my widow will be able to say, "And it comes with an exclusive Fisker car cover!" and jack the price up a by a couple of hundred bucks.

    Hi Andrew,

    I have been talking to Geeta Fisker to ship cover order to Australia. Could I quote the 7.5% group discount from BMWZ8.US
    This saving would probably cover the courier cost to Melbourne.
    Cheers, PKoh

    Yes, but we need to get a serious group to get the discount, I don't know if we're there yet.

    Thanks Andrew. Geeta did say a volume lot of 10 is reached before discount can apply and they are hoping to hear from you soon. Cheers PK
