car cover suggestions

Sorry if this has been covered. I promise I used the search function and went back 4+ pages before posting. Not sure if this qualifies as technical. forgive me if not, I'm a newb.
I have a new 2014 mustang gt hardtop. I'm looking for a complete car cover for it as it will not be a daily driver. Something of good quality and perhaps slightly padded. Would like to hear about brands and models to consider or stay away from.
Thanks for reading and TIA for any suggestions.
Since everyone like pics here is what I want to cover:

The best indoor car cover is the gray cotten cover with flannel lining on the inside
that you can get from California Car Cover company. It fits much tighter and hugs the car better
than the one in the above picture. I have one of these on my Mustang, as well as all of my other
collector cars. They are the gold standard for indoor car covers. The snug fit on these covers
is nothing short of amazing. They have the antenna pocket on them as well. When you
install one of these it is like a second skin on the car....not a wrinkle anywhere. They
also have very strong elastic around the bottom......nothing shifts even in a 30 miles per hour wind.

thanks for the replies. I will check them both out. My car may be kept in the driveway but the carport is an option. Thanks again!

I have the same as gt styles, and mine stays in the drive way... Here is my review...

Great build quality... I have ran it thru an industrial washer to keep it clean, had for 10 months and still looks great.

Will allow the car to breath, may not seem important, but it is. With that being said it does let water and dust in, my car will be covered for weeks on end, when I take the cover off it still looks good. Depending on how long the car has been covered and the time of year really depends on the dust. Usually when I take my cover off the dust will blow away as I am driving..

I would say this is a great cover for the price you pay. Plus it is a fitted cover with the mirrors and the antenna folds. Not to mention the cool mustang logo!

I would go to California Car Cover as GRREEN mentioned, there you can find what is best for your needs indoor, outdoor, or both, what type of weather etc. A little pricy, but it is worth the investment IMO.

We've had a lot of good feedback about the CoverCraft Deluxe covers. I'm confident this car cover will suit your needs. Just about everyone here at AM uses one on their personal Mustang!

Thanks again for the suggestions. I ordered the cover from AM this morning. If I don't like it I will step up to the california cover as suggested.

I would love to get the actual Ford Car Cover that is specific for the California Special but I'm not dumping $300-$400 on a Car Cover. I'm definitely going with the CoverCraft from AM soon though. It has great reviews and a good price.

California Car Covers fit amazingly and are the best car covers I've ever used.

For those who purchased the AM cover, is it a hassle to put on/ take off? Definitely interested seeing as that my 5.0 needs to sit under the sun all day at work.

The 1st time u put it on, it is a bit confusing... But when u take it off, u start by rolling it in from the sides first, then start rolling the front to the back... U roll it in a way so that when u put it on the next time u can roll it on and off w/o dragging on the car... This take a little practice of course, but once u understand it, u can get it on and off within a minute. It does come with instructions, so that will help

Just wanted to follow up on my car cover purchase from AM. I received it, washed the car and installed it. Took less than 5 minutes to fit right out of the box. Should be quicker next round. I'm happy with it and feel like it was money well spent.
Thanks for the suggestions
