Re: too good to be true ???

Look at it another way. The car is at Morecambe in Lancs, which is by the sea and has no MOT, so you cant drive it home to Cork.

Re: monsoon or stormforce

No Flapping. They are a good fit, with a little slack - sufficient to allow some air to circulate. Also have 2 fixing straps which pass under the car to secure.
