I'm in the market for an indoor cover. The dealership showed me a picture of a custom cover for the 124, but doesn't have any pricing or availability info. Any suggestions?

I purchased one from carcover cost $139 free shipping and no tax. I was a little disappointed with it not going all the way to the ground but it did work. I had it outside in California fir a week in the rain and it worked great. The company offered me a $30 discount for me not being completely satisfied and refunded it to my credit card. It was an inside outside cover and for the cost works great.

mopar cover for 124 list is $150 pn 82215035. i purchased a cover that is listed as indoor/outdoor for under $30. it too does not go all the way to the ground but since it only needs to protect against dust inside i think it will fit the bill. also the add says it does not fit this car but i have already put it on top be sure it fits and it does. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003DNJ732/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Has anyone ordered the actual 82215035 cover?
I did not order one, but the Abarth car cover from Fiat was given free, with the purchaseof the car, the Sales Manager threw that in to close the deal, but I heard the sales man saying it did not come cheap. I figure about $250. canadian taxes include based on the Miata cover.

Are you guys also taking into consideration the materials these covers are made out of? Because I heard that some will leave small scratches on the paint, so keeping material in mind is vital especially due to the fact that we're dealing with new vehicles here.

My preferred car cover is the Covercraft Custom Weathershield HP. It won't scratch your car, provides excellent UV protection and is compact, lightweight and can be washed in your home washing machine. It cost me about $350. I had one for my Ford Fusion and have one for my '87 Alfa Spider. I am still waiting for Covercraft to fit one to the Fiat Spider.

Be careful of the covers made of spun-bond polypropylene material. They can put fine scratches in the clear coat if they don't have another softer material against the car paint.

Is the Mopar 124 cover fleese lined or some nonabrasive material?
yes, according to the dealer. The other "indoor" cover is not.

I bought the CoverKing storm proof in blue for about $240 incl. shipping. I use it every day as I do not have a garage. I think this is a great cover for the Spider. I previously have owned a couple of Covercraft Custom Weathershield HP covers. They are softer and lighter and, I think, very high quality covers. But the CK is actually waterproof, which is nice, whereas the CC loses its water resistance after a short time. Actually, I don't think that matters much because the water that gets through the CC does not leave spots on the car and the car and cover dry quickly after the rain stops. The wax job is left just fine. But the CK is a little heavier fabric and, I think, will stand up to the Florida sun longer than the CC. Also, on the Spider, the cover fits down low on the tires and so gives good coverage and has stronger elastic than the CC. I think it will stay on in a pretty good breeze better than the CC, for which I sewed on clamps for nylon straps on the front and back. The CK has a nice pocket for the antenna and, unavoidably, one for the shark fins for those of you unfortunates who have them. :D

I ordered it today. Should have it by the end of the week.
Any news on getting this in? I'm trying to give relatives some ideas for gift ideas, and I'm not sure if I should suggest the OEM one or the one that Brian @ Good-win uses
