i got the mk4 car cover made by volkswagen as a gift. it works alright, the window for the license plate doesnt line up and the antenna pocket doesnt fit right. I am only a little concerned about the sharky fin looking antenna poking through the cover though, and i think you only get that one if you have the satellite radio anyway. its a little tight around the side mirrors, but all in all, it definately serves its purpose and works well. You can get it trough any dealer and i think online at the vw driver gear site.

--also--
i looked around and never did find a MKv cover specifically. the MKv is actually the 2006 1/2 model, so if you order online and see 2006 as the model year, youre still getting a MK4 cover. Its a good thing to make sure the dealer is aware of too. Mine at least is an idiot.

hey! been away a while i will seek a picture of my cover but i had mine made int he uk but COVERCRAFT was ?325 hand made and im sorry if any body takes offence to this but i will quote from a jim carey movie (me my self and irene) the water beads off it like a black mans head.. all weather breathable fabric.

i have a weather shield cover.....

"Quote from the site"

WeatherShield fabric is manufactured exclusively for Covercraft using Nextec patented encapsulation process developed for outdoor performance wear. ??? This encapsulation process uses precision and controlled placement of proprietary polymers to make ordinary fabrics extraordinary. By placing an ultra-thin film around the fabric fibres this process created a durable breathable barrier within the fabric. Unlike traditional coatings and laminations that just protects one side of the fabric, this process places protective polymers inside the fabric! ;D :eek:

The WeatherShield features are:

Best Weather Resistance ;D
Water literally just runs off this fabric. This is so dramatic that in a recent demonstration we were asked if we were using "real water"! :p ;D :eek: (It even passed hurricane testing to level 8 on AATCC standards!)

sure it wouldnt cost more than about $5 to get one printed - a nice Iron on one... ha ha that's if it sticks to the water repelling fabric! .. you dont ask for much do you?

if you look on the site you can mix the colours up i just went for Grey cause i felt it's reflect the heat more.
