Taking a cover on & off the car will only give you scratches and a dirty cover, and draw unecessary attention to your car.
This is the best advice, unless you wash the car everyday before putting the cover on you will do more harm than good installing any cover on even a slightly dirty car because the cover will spend the whole day grinding any trapped dirt into the paint. You are better off spending the same amount of time you would putting the cover on and off daily to wax it once a week, and using a dash shade daily.
