Looking for: a convertible cover

My car spends more time outside in the Florida sun than I'd like and while I do have a windshield sunshade I'd like to have a cover. But for simplicity's sake one that only covers the top and windows. I actually used to have one for my MINI but now I can't find any. it was made from the same material as most quality covers. My goals are: protect the top (sun, birds, etc), and sunshade.
Any ideas?

This is the one I have:

I'd recommend it; got at dealer but I'm sure you could find elsewhere. Or look at car cover companies for "cockpit cover."

Never seen one in person, how do these hook up? Mirrors? front hood vents?

Looking for something that is EASY to install and take off. Is this the case with these things?

I'd rather put that on, than lower/raise the hood for every day I drive to work.

Thanks cityjohn, but this appears to be a top-down cover and I'm looking for a top-up version.

pete, very easy to install. Hook in rear bodyseam, close trunk and then velcro loops go around mirrors; front can go under wipers if it's windy.

pkr -- my E36 had one that I could use with top up; but the one I have now is tightly tailored for flat across the top-down car. but I have seen versions that cover the greenhouse of cars (not just convertibles)
