I didn't see that reference. I just did a sample order on their site and the only choice I had was WITH the mirror pockets.

I would not want a cover without the pockets. I always start with the mirrors, which gets everything else lined up and then sort of holds it in place while you're laying out the rest of it. If there is any breeze it wants to blow and slide all over the place.

I purchased a Covercraft technalon evolution at Covers & Accessories for Boats, Cars, Trucks, SUVs, & RVs | CoverQuest it's a really good quality. The price was very reasonable and they sometime give you discounts. You might want to visit the website and see or call them.

Yes, I see what you mean. The advertizing material says no pockets, but if you place the order, you can only get the cover with pockets. I placed the order.

Thank you for your help. Hoping it fits my new Citrus nicely

Jim, I just remembered something else. I replaced my antenna with a little 2 or 3 inch one that I got cheap on eBay. I didn't have to poke a hole in the cover and I don't have to fit it over the antenna every time. The short antenna fits fine under the cover. It didn't seem to affect radio reception.

Neither did I. I simply unscrew my OEM antenna and throw it in the back of the car when I put on my car cover and screw it back on when I remove my cover. It takes only a few seconds, so there's no need to poke an antenna hole in the car cover.

I've done the "remove-the-antenna" thing with my Miata, and I don't really like it. I cover the car every day at work, so the short antenna works better for me. It I stored it for longer periods it would be less of a problem.
