Default Sorry for my wife

So my wife got me a car cover from for my mini type s cooper. But im hesitating if i should put the cover on or not. Becasue recently i got a new paint job on my car and im just worried what if it damages my paint job.
Is it okay? am i overreacting?

I would thing the only way it should damage the paint is if the cover is flapping because of a strong wind. Most of them I have seen have a cushioned inner liner (I have never seen a "carscover" car cover though)

Be sure the car is dirt/dust free as that can rub and damage the paint ... I prefer the air bubble for car storage As it keeps the cover inflated and off the car to prevent paint contact it also has a small heater to keep moisture out
