Tesla come fairly well equiped, but they can still use some accesorizing. Some accessories are specific to the Model 3, Model Y, Model X, and Model S, some are specific to Tesla, and some are not specific to Tesla.
Tesla has an online shop where you can find their most popular accessories but there are also a few well-known websites where you can find custom and quality aftermarket interior and exterior accessories for your Tesla such as consoles, screen protectors, floor mats, lighting/sound upgrades, car covers, and more.
We've compiled a list of our top recommended accessories by Tesla model:
Some of the more popular Tesla accessories include:
- Interior: floor mats, frunk/trunk lifts, seat covers/protectors, consoles, sunshades, hooks, lightning upgraes, pedal covers, pet covers, trunk organizers, frunk coolers, window control covers, and door control covers.
- Exterior: car covers, eco hitch, puddle lights, rim protectors, lug nuts and covers, valve stem caps, vinyl T accents, licence plate mounts, spoliers, camera covers, appliqués, chrome delete kits, charging adapters/accessories.

There’s been a lot of controversy about if these door seals reduce the road noise or not. LivingTesla has ran an experiment and posted the results for all us to know.

Tesla recommends replacing your cabin filters after 2 years of use. However, sometimes it needs to be replaced earlier due to a nasty smell (I’ve heard people refer to it both as a vinegar smell and a stinky sock) that is known to appear in the Model 3. And if you happen to be in the market for new filters, I recommend these HEPA cabin filters with activated charcoal to combat bad odors.From issue #121

Trevor from Tesla Owners Online shows how to install the installation of Torklift Central EcoHitch in his Model 3. As Trevor said, the car was designed to have a hitch. I just want to add that you should inform yourself before deciding to install a tow hitch since Tesla says in the manual to not do it. Good job Trevor!
If your Jeda wireless pad charger is not lining up right on the charger and you often have to slide it up a little to get it to start charging, here’s a solution for you. Get some adhesive MagSafe magnets from AliExpress and a roll of adhesive-backed microfiber to cover the magnets and hold them in place on the mat. Put it all together, wrapped and trimmed on the edges (you could use an Exacto knife), and voilà. Thank you u/TheKobayashiMoron for sharing this $20 project!From issue #138
A couple of weeks ago we partnered with Jeda to give away a Jeda Wireless Pad and it turned out to be one of our more popular contests. Model 3 owners love this wireless charger, and if they do, it must be for a reason. Or for many reasons: easy to install, non slippery, great design and UX, and compatible with most mobile devices in the market.
Love it? Buy it now!#90
Not sure why Apple ever stopped selling magnetic battery chargers, it’s a brilliant feature. Glad that someone thought about this and implemented the same principle in USB-C adapters that we can use. Here’s the one recommended in the Twitter thread initiated by @mcjamez, thanks for sharing!From issue #121
This Tesla owner was looking for a MagSafe for his Model X and, after not being able to find a solution he liked, he built his own. Here’s a short demo and here’s a detailed explanation of the hack and all the pieces needed. The DIY has become so popular that the creator is 3D printing them and selling them on Etsy. He plans on donating the proceeds to clean energy non-profit to help further the Tesla mission.From issue #146
Vanessa decided to try out Amazon Echo Auto. Amazon Echo Auto is the incarnation of their smart assistant - Alexa - in your car. To demo it, she picked a few useful skills and designed a useful routine as well. Watch the video and subscribe to our channel if you haven’t done it yet.
I often get questions by new owners about what accessories to get for their brand new Teslas. The number one thing I recommend is getting storage for Sentry and Dashcam videos. Other than that, it really depends on your needs and budget, but today I wanted to share a few Model 3 and Model Y accessory bundles that include all the basics (and more!) and will definitely help you save some $$From issue #136
This Model 3 owner fixed the smell coming out of his Model 3 air filters but unfortunately, the smell is back. In this video, he shares his perspective on why he thinks this is going to be an annual maintenance item to add to your list. He also shares the results of an air quality test with the OEM filters and compares it with some aftermarket ones. If you’re in the market for new filters, I recommend these HEPA cabin filters with activated charcoal to combat bad odors.From issue #125
This Model 3 owner was bummed by the fact that Tesla removed the hooks in the frunk and decided to 3D print his own for his Model 3 from Q3 2020. If you’re also missing this accessory, and have a 2017-2020 Model 3 (not the new version!) here’s some you can buy on Amazon.From issue #145
New Performance package for the Model 3. It includes track-focused brake fluid, high-performance brake pads and 20» Zero-G Performance Wheels (which may affect range). Costs $5,500.
On top of that Tesla is releasing the Track Mode V2. In this version, they’re giving the driver a lot of freedom to tweak how the car responds and other interesting features like recoding video, built-in-lap timer, and more.
What do you think? I personally think that those rims look 🔥🔥🔥 See it in action on a track.
Is the factory tow package worth the extra $700? Well, it depends on what you’re looking for. Our friends at LivingTesla do a great job of explaining it all in this video.
If you decide to go with the aftermarket tow hitch for your Model Y, here’s the one we recommend.From issue #118
It was about time that Tesla allowed new owners to store Dashcam and Sentry Mode videos without having to purchase any accessories. I really hope that, in the future, Tesla offers a paid plan to store and access videos in the cloud!From issue #142

In case you missed this or you’re new to Tesla, a few weeks ago Jeda launched a new version of their wireless pad, both for the Model 3 and the Model Y. There are cheaper wireless pads for your Tesla in the market, but there aren’t better ones. The new capabilities of the V3 include:
- Increased charing area
- Fastest charging speeds
- Three way charging (1 horizontal and 2 portrait positions)
- Wired charging option
By now, everyone who’s been following the Model Y deliveries knows that Model Ys come with a wireless charging pad. What I did not know is that new Model 3s being delivered right now also include the wireless charging pad as well as USB-C ports. I read about it on a Facebook Group the other day and was gladly surprised to see how fast changes in the newer models make it to the existing ones.From issue #116
We recently updated our PDF for new Tesla owners which comes in very handy when you first get your hands on the steering wheel and realize you’re still driving a car, but a very different one from what you’re used to. The PDF also contains some good tips that even experienced Tesla owners may not know about. Finally, check out our must-have recommended accessories for new owners (links by model can be found at the very end of the PDF). A quick few ideas here:
- Screen protector (Model 3/Y)
- Licence Plate Mount «Quick Bandit»
- Ultra-bright LED light kit (Model 3 | Model Y). We recently installed this in our trunk and it makes such a big difference!
Tesla has added a rear liftgate sunshade for the Model Y. It is constructed of lightweight fabric with a collapsible rigid frame so you can fit it in the included pouch as well as Tesla says rearward visibility is not compromised but blocks 2⁄3 of solar thermal load. I wonder if this would be needed for the folks in the 3rd row of the Y.From issue #143
TeslaBros is rebranding to TESBROS and opening an Amazon Store. To celebrate the launch, they are offering their Chrome Delete Kits at an awesome price:
- Model 3 Chrome Delete Kit: $139.95
- Model S/X Chrome Delete Kit: $149.95 (US only)
We recently installed the Chrome Delete kit in our Model S- we’ll be publishing an article soon- and couldn’t be happier about it, it looks amazing! I’m not going to lie, it takes patience. But once you get the hang of it, smoothing the vinyl almost becomes therapeutic.#101

I don’t own a Model 3 but if you do and, like me, don’t love the look of the Aero Wheel Covers, check out this new Kickstarter project called Orbital.

«Quick Bandit» is a Tesla front license plate bracket that can be installed and removed in seconds. It’s been very successful with the Model 3 and now it’s also available for the Model Y. Made in California by @tonytesla4life, a member of the Tesla community who we’ve had the pleasure of meeting IRL and we love working with. If you happen to be in the market for a front license plate bracket and also need to change your cabin air filters (or are going to have to do it soon), get the bundle and save $20. (Or you can also get the HEPA cabin air filters separately and watch @Seasonedtech replace them in under 4 minutes!).From issue #129
The famous artsci is back, this time lighting up the back of his Model 3 as he previously did with his Model S. You can find the WIP here.#48
If you’re looking for a USB or some sort of storage for Sentry and Dashcam videos, we got you. PureTesla offers multiple options, they all come preconfigured and ready to use. And their customer service is top-notch!
- TeslaCam microSD. Works with Mac and PC, includes MicroSD card and USB.
- TeslaCam iOS Bundle. Works with Mac, PC, Android, and iPhone/iPad via included MicroSD reader and Lightning port adapter.
- TeslaCam SSD Extreme. Ultimate TeslaCam solution in terms of reliability and storage capacity.
If, like us, you’re in the market for a new screen protector, check Abstract Ocean’s. They are made of tempered glass, have six layers of protection, and are available for all models (yay!). Their matte version looks perfect to minimize glare and hide fingerprints.#86
SwissFamilyTesla got his referral award Signature Black Wall Connector a few weeks ago. He got confirmation from Tesla that it is the first one delivered in Switzerland.#26
Nice idea to avoid strangers to unplug cars from L2 chargers. I just wish it would be less complicated (you need to have a lock with you) and not that easy to mess with the charger (lock it when not in use, lock it when plugged in someone else’s car, etc.).

We recently bought these set of mats for the trunk and we’re so happy with the purchase. They seem to come directly from Weathertech (the company that manufactures them for Tesla) and they cost only $135 (they cost $200 if you buy them on the Tesla website). As you can see they look legit and they fit perfectly. If you are in the market for some all-weather mats now that winter is coming, these are great ones.
Tesla has released their all-weather floor liners manufactured by Weathertech. It is interesting that these mats are 100% recyclable and free of cadmium, lead, latex, and PVC. If you don’t have all-weather floor mats for your Model 3 yet, these are probably a good option.#72
Tesla has opened their parts catalog which puts them at the same level than other major vehicle manufacturers. OP allhands says «I do wish they provided pricing outright and made ordering easier on the Tesla site. Other car manufacturers have made online ordering really easy in their parts catalogs.» But still, this is a big step for a better customer experience. Way to go Tesla!

Tesla recently introduced ‘Glovebox PIN’ to secure access to it with a 4-digit pin. As part of the Model 3 2021 refresh, Tesla is also planning on updating the interior of the car to get a USB port on the top left corner of the glovebox. Together, these changes will allow owners to securely lock their Sentry Mode/TeslaCam storage device in the glovebox. Very cool!
For current Model 3 and Model Y owners, you still have the option to get the Jeda USB hub, which enables you to hide the storage device in a hub that seems part of the car and also gives you extra USB ports.From issue #133
If you have a Model 3 you probably have heard about TeslaBros - if you haven’t, don’t worry, that’s why Tesletter exists 😉. Well, this week they just released their new doorhandle and door sill wrap. We follow TeslaBros on Twitter and can tell you that they have been working on their wrap for the door handle for weeks! These guys are really OCD and they haven’t stopped until they got what - at least looks like - the perfect wrap for the Model 3 handles.
We’ve contacted TeslaBros and got a discount coupon for our subscribers, enjoy!
- Coupon: TesletterHandlesIt
- Discount: 20% discount in the door handle and the door sill wraps
- Valid until: May 28th.
Note: Tesletter is making no money whatsoever from this product.
Unfortunately, Teslaquila won’t be available to purchase internationally, but according to Elon Musk on Twitter, the bottle and a set of shot glasses will be. If you don’t know what we’re talking about, check it out, it sold out the first day it became available a couple of weeks ago.From issue #139
Even if you aren’t looking for new mats, don’t miss out on watching how TeslaRaj pours five galons of water in his trunk 🤣 These mats by Teslamian are designed by Vincent and seem like a good option if you are in the market for all-weather floor mats.
Thanks Raj for rocking our My Car Updates t-shirt.#78
Not carrying a spare tire is not a reason not to own a car jack, they’re great for tire rotations and winter wheel swaps, but also for DIY red brake caliper painting, cleaning the wheel wells, and even swapping suspension components (Model 3 especially - lowering springs, coil-overs).
