car cover for 340i

I park my car in apartment garage which is covered to good extent but there is opening on one side to let light in. This opening has let a lot of snow inside garage during yesterday's windy snow storm in north east.

I am wondering if anyone can recommend a good car cover that is waterproof and not too hard on paint. I am aware of issues with scratches on paint because of cover. I only want to use it under extreme rainy/snowy conditions.

I want to protect the baby

Thanks

Perhaps I'm mistaken but from my understanding snow and rain, excluding hail, cause far less damage to a car than a cover ever would.

Either way you might try something like this https://www.hailprotector.com

a bunch of recommendations in here. You can buy a 335i car cover - it's not any different than the 340.

I would personally only use a car cover to protect my car for an extended period of time from UV damage. I wouldn't worry about snow really. But hey do what makes you feel better it is your car
