I decided I needed a cover for my Karma ( cannot be used when charging the nano phosphate lit. Ion battery...but can be used with trickle charger plugged in when I will be gone for an extended period). My Fisker dealer can no longer order it but told me Coverking made the car covers Fisker offered. I contacted Coverking support and have now ordered the deluxe cover at the same price Fisker charged with my paying shipping of $12 or so. Here is the phone number of Candice who is knowledgeable on the Fisker cover and who works from 6a.m.-2:30pm pacific time :

BTW, just to close the loop on the original post. I did end up buying the cover from Mike and am very pleased with it.

If you can source them direct from Coverking, then you will also be happy - I wouldn't try anything else frankly. The car is such a big and odd shape, it's very unlikely anything else will fit right.

Another perfect example of the value of this board! I just called and left Candice a message. I asked the dealer about getting one without success and had no idea where I was going to find one (particularly important as I don't have a covered garage at home). Thanks!

You are correct . But if you call Candice, she can get the one made for Fisker Automotive with the Fisker logo in the Armor version at the Fisker Automotive offered price with bag. I.e., top of line material at less price.

what worries me is all the scratches that you can get for putting it on and off. i think Harleyguy posted something before that you can get a lot of scratches from putting them on and off. However i could be wrong...

Unless the car is truly dirty, then just take one of those old-school "California Car Dusters" and give it a 90 second "sweep" before you pull the cover over it. Works like a charm.

I also do paint correction to cars . If you look at your car in the sun and the sun hits one point of the body and you see circles around the paint that's called swirls . Using a car cover traps dust between the cover and car body as you drag the cover off and on the dust scratches the clear coat also the same thing is done by those dusters.

Some people are bothered by swirls until they really see what thier car looks like after removing the swirls . Depending on the hardness of the clear coat they can be removed very easy or can take many hours . I've spent any were from a couple hours to a few days to remove swirls . It's very labor intense but well worth the work . If your interested check out this company it's one of a few I deal with . You can also check out the forum

I've judged many cars shows were the trophys were based on paint condition I've also won a few cars shows with one of my cars those shows were judged my Megiuars and other top names .

I've also done car shows with Dennis Gauge from My Classic Car and Wayne Carini from Chasing Classic Cars .

Do you have a polish that you'd recommend? Not for removing swirls, but for enhancing/protecting the finish?

Just to update the thread: I spoke with Candice (714-850-0303 x638) and the details are that they make an indoor cover for $399, and 2 for outdoor: a $405 "stormproof" model and a $500 "Armor" model. Any of them ship for about $12, and they are made to order (a 5-7 day process).

I asked her to differentiate the 2 outdoor models, since "indoor" isn't an option for me. She said the "armor" model is more all-season (for people with winters and snow and such), and recommended the cheaper "stormproof" for me in Florida because it is uncoated and less prone to cracking in the constant sun.

$420 doesn't seem like a bad deal, but the fact that you can't have it on when you are charging the battery, and the talk of scratching, is giving me pause. It also prevents the operation of the solar roof panel in keeping the interior cool. But what's worse: having the solar panel not doing its thing, or exposing the entire body to the UV?

Having just spent the $180 on the floor mats, I don't want to spend unnecessarily, but I want to protect my investment too.

Nice to have when you know you'll be out of town for a stretch and have 10 minutes to use a duster or quick detail spray to get rid of the layer of scratch-makers beforehand. Assuming you are parking indoors. If you're going to leave it for more than a week or two - get a trickle charger for the 12v battery.
