All,

I am looking to buy a tailored indoor cover for my Coupe, as the one I currently have is getting on a bit now and is just a general "Coupe" one.

Has anyone bought a good quality cover that is tailored to the shape of the car, and if so, where from ?

Thanks,

Bob

I got a cover made up[ by these guys, but they made it too short to cover the bumpers so I'm not sure where they got their dimensions from. Give them a try, but make sure you tell them the dimensions you need and don't rely on them to work that bit out for themselves: https://www.stormcarcovers.co.uk/collections/stormforce-car-covers/products/lancia-car-covers-1

I can recommend these.

Supersoft stretch sort of tailored so achieves a good fit. I bought an M at the NEC (in dark blue of course) for my B12 on their sizing recommendation from the boss who knew the Aurelia shape. Well it was a bit on the tight side so they changed it at the show price (I actually hung onto the M which is a perfect for for my Sport) for an XL for the B12. I would think L is a better bet for the Flavia and would still give a good but not totally stretched fit.

Thanks Tim, I have e-mailed them to see what size they recommend as I don`t want it to be loose.

Tim,

I have ordered one of those covers that you recommended. Weather permitting, I might even get the car out for a much awaited run this weekend.

Thanks,

All,

I received my cover this morning, and it fits perfectly. Lovely quality.

For reference for any other Coupe owners, it is a medium.
