Just watch for any condensation in warehouses or old garages when the outside air temp drops below the dewpoint. You will need to have air flow for proper drying to get rid of any inside moisture.

I think there is some powered air flowed covers that can manage this.

This is what you need, but be warned, you WILL fill it up with more cars and STILL be short of space...

watch out for those "dear old ladies"  - they are the ones who fang it when no one is looking ...

Only the little old ladies from Pasadena...

Did you end up finding storage space? I have a contact in Lower Hutt that I can recommend if you are still looking.

Still looking around,  Have a few people who are also interested so could go in on a larger space.

Be great to have options though (if you could let me know the Hutt contact?)

For me, I purchased a rental property then kept the garage for myself and my car hording habit.
Didn't seem to affect the rental return.

We are looking at building a large hangar at Hamilton airport.
There will be space for cars in among a few airplanes.

There will be a car hoist and a few things available.
It should be built in about 6-9 months time.

Cost is probably $40 per week.
If your keen, let me know and we can discuss.

How often are you going to use the RS2? It's quite a bit of effort to store car long term.

moisture in petrol and rust the fuel tank, tyres get out of shape being sitting for too long, flat battery, temperature/moisture in storage.

Too be honest I'm not sure.  And yes, I'd need to do some reading about how to do it long term (drain fluids \ put on axle stands) .

I'd love to be able to drive it now and then, but until I get the RS4 back , I don't know how long (or how) I'll alternate.  And my head says to get a Nissan Leaf and store the other 2 and forget about them until I'm much older and have more time to appreciate \ drive. 

And yes. I"m a hoarder...

Make sure you let us know which barn you kept it in and we can organise a "Barn find" in 20 yrs time

Looking now at more of a short long term option - just leaving it at my parents place.  BUT it's not in a garage.  Ideas \ best car covers?

I know there are some issues with wind and they can quietly scrape away at the paint work?

The idea is that I leave it at my parents and my dad takes it out every now and then (once every couple of weeks - or more if he likes) .  But in the meantime it just sits under a cover.
