    We use "stormforce" for all our covers not cheap.

    The one for the Alfa says Bogart on the packaging, the rest is in Italian, so probably a dead end for a Landy cover.
    The second one in your post shows the inside of the cover, and it looks very similar to the Alfa one (picture of the inside of ours, for reference, attached).
    The more closely tailored you can get it the better as it keeps the wind from lifting it. We tied it down with a couple of lengths of rope after the first bout of very strong wind last winter and it was fine after that. IMG_20211125_152148837.jpg

    Stormforce is what I'd found for the Range Rover that looked very good. Not bought or fitted yet so I hesitated to recommend, so good to know someone has used and likes them!

    They fit well, with undercar straps and made to fit each car not as generic as most, they have held up well for us. If it was long term storage then a cheap fleecy type cover under may help with potential rubbing.
    We drag ours off covered in snow and Chuck it back on when we get back over a wet car as they are breathable.

    The way I'd decide is, how long is it likely to be outside under the cover for?
    If you're in the process or sorting proper storage and it won't be ages, I'd go for the cheaper on. If it's likely most of the winter, I'd go for the stormforce.

    Please can you start a new thread on this or PM me? RAVE section J1 P6 have you checked continuity to ground for the dimmer switch and checked from the switch to the BECM.

    Bloody youngsters,as posted first model Ford Anglia's and Popular's 100E's perhaps they should reintroduce the system to slow down or thin the boy racer gene pool.

    If you saw the size of my workshop in a 400 year old water mill, you would understand why I cannot afford to heat it:(
