    Z8 Fisker Car Cover

    Just saw this today, as I'm looking for a cover for one of my cars https://www.coverking.com/henrik-fisker-z8-cover.html/. Coverking covers suffer from premature failure of the elastic in the back and front; however, I found a shop near me that puts in a proper elastic for $30. With that in mind, I seem to remember these covers being in the $1000s no?

    Says $285.00 on the site, which would be a pretty low,price for a cover.

    Coverking came out to my house twice to measure my car for their template. They were nice enough to leave me with a couple of the early covers. I have to say they fit and have worn well, but I have only used them indoors.When I first heard about them at $1k, I thought they were pricey also, but I have to say that they are a great deal at this price. Very cool design drawings on the cover. So cool that I once went to C&C and left the cover on the car and got as much attention as the surrounding exotics.

    The link in our for sale section takes you to the same page - http://www.bmwz8.us/forum/z8s-sale/f...over-4476.html

    I don't remember the original price, and I'd already become Z8-less at that point so it didn't really register with me.

    I think it is the same price it has always been. $1000.

    What am I doing wrong? Every time I click on the link it is showing $999.99. If it is cheaper now where is the correct link?

    Dang, I had it up on my screen for a few days as a "should I get one of these", and now it has turned into a "I should have gotten one of those".

    Also, be aware that it doesn't fit as nicely as the factory "condom" cover... but it's certainly a conversation piece!
