I’ve been looking for the best car cover on AliExpress. My absolute top priority is UV protection. The project car (Octavia RS, read all about it here and here) is black and it gets so hot in the sun you can’t touch the paintwork. Plus the clear coat is on it’s way out so I’m trying to make it last as long as possible before the inevitable respray. But I digress. Here is a super brief review of each cover I bought from AliExpress.
I bought two car covers off AliExpress
This first one I bought was this. I bought it because it was the cheapest and because they shipped from Europe so fast delivery.
Fine for indoors
Ships from Europe
Fatigues in wind. Cover disintegrates.
Better than no cover but not a huge improvement.
The second cover
The second cover was this
This cover is on a completely different level to the first cover. Much heavier. Great quality and as the description says, a multi-layer construction.
Much heavier than the first cover. Much more material.
Much cheaper than similar/identical covers available in Europe
Fit not as good as first one. A bit baggier.
Which Aliexpress Car Cover to choose?
The second one. By a massive margin.
The difference in price is only 9 Euro but I’d say you’re getting at least 5 times the product. It’s a no brainer.
