I have a XS size which I use for my classic Mini but when I bought it my intention was to use it for the Caterham as well, although obviously not both at the same time!

With no spare wheel the XS should allow a foot of space each end, S size is likely to be around 18" each end. My opinion is the XS is big enough.

I have a Small ('S'?) and I'm surprised how much spare room there is on all sides around my S3 car. 

Although early days, seems to be a great product.

Agreed - I had two Carcoons (I treated myself to a new one after ten years) and they were spacious , easy to use and effective. Unzipping the Carcoon in early March, after a 3 or 4 month slumber, was like unwrapping a late Christmas present

Thank you for the replies.I've just tried to order the xs and it's out of stock so will give them a call to find out what sort of timescale I'm looking at for more stock to be made if they intend to manufacture more.

Failing that it will be the S which is available.

I have had 3 over the past 25 years. The latest being a Veloce which is defo a much better bit of kit as with the frame you can easily access the car for a blast then put it away again quickly. Re sizing, I bought mine primarily for my Lotus Exige S2 so went with a Small. Loads of space in there and I suspect I could have just about squeezed the S2 Exige into an XS. Glad I went for the S mind you as my bigger S3 Exige will easily fit if I need to use it for that car.
