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.

[Rumor] Tesla is working with 3M to do custom wraps for the Cybertruck

Tesla already offers wraps in China, it would be an interesting service if they would do a partnership for the Cybertruck and you could get it wrapped directly from the factory. Even better if they got to extend this to PPF for the other models, the ones with paint, hehe.

2.0 Center Console in a 2018 Model 3

This owner describes the process of getting the new center console in their 2018 Model 3. Reading all that they had to do, the process doesn’t seem easy, but if you are one of those who really dislike the old console, take a look. Some of the work necessary includes replacing the wire harness, and having to place wireless chargers from Amazon and put them behind the charger pad.

From issue #235

2024 Model X new steering wheel

Newly manufactured Model Y and 3 are removing the Roll and Creep options and will only feature Hold. This is the mode that maximizes range and reduces brake wear by applying regenerative braking all the way to zero without the driver needing to use the brake pedal. I’ve personally only been using this mode since we got our Model Y. I hope new owners can adapt to that quickly and happily.

From issue #300

360 surround view + HDMI kit testing

DIY Tesla HEPA filter on a ‘21 Model Y without stinky smell

This Reddit user had problems with his cabin filters (stinky smell we are all familiar with). When the new HEPA filter for the Model Y came out, he noticed how much better the design was at preventing water from getting to it and, since no retrofit was available, decided to fix the problem himself. And… he got the missing parts from Tesla for only $70.50 🤯.

From issue #215

Does changing my steering wheel affect the warranty with Tesla?

This is a pretty common question for the folks who decide to install aftermarket accessories. Our friends from Pimp My EV cover the matter at length in this article. Long story short, it doesn’t unless the problem was caused by the aftermarket part.

From issue #227

Don't forget to change your cabin filter

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.

For parents with a Model 3: 3 car seats across in the back seat

If you want to install three car seats, you are going to need to secure all of them with the seat belt for them to fit. It will be tight but it can be done, especially if you get European car seats, as cars in Europe are generally a bit smaller. Note: If you are going to install car seats for the first time in your Tesla, I can’t recommend enough for you to use a seat cover as well, this is the one that we use.

How to order CCS1 to Tesla adapter from Korea

Do you need a CCS1 to Tesla Adapter? Sadly, Tesla doesn’t sell this in the USA, but seems that you can buy it from Tesla in Korea and get it shipped to you in the USA. I wonder if Tesla will change this if the number of US orders goes up.

[Sponsored] We’re excited to share that our friends at TWRAPS have just launched a dual wireless charger designed specifically for the 2017-2020 Tesla Model 3 and Y, and it’s compatible with MagSafe iPhones.

Its two-level design can accommodate newer iPhones with larger cameras and ensures your device stays charged at all times. I’ve personally found that my iPhone 14 Pro barely charges on the stock wireless charger that came with my Tesla, so this new product is a game-changer.

Mobile chargers won't be included with new cars anymore

I have to say I’m highly disappointed by this change, as I’m certain this is going to negatively affect first-time users that aren’t super informed. I wish they would give folks an option to opt-out from receiving the mobile charger in exchange for store credit, rather than having to purchase it separately.

The details of Model Y's HEPA filters

According to this Redditor the Model Y’s HEPA filter has two layers , the top layer is like the filter in Model 3 and the bottom layer is HEPA with plastic case. This is, as someone pointed out in the comments, a pretty clever idea since the first filter, most likely cheaper to replace, would clean the air before the HEPA filter, and that way I assume it will increase the lifetime of the HEPA filter.

Tired of adjusting your side mirrors? Tesla will help

In a response to @ICannot_Enough, where he suggested that Tesla could automatically adjust the side mirror settings based on the position of the driver’s eyes and a comparison against the fleet’s own data, Elon said that Tesla will add that feature to the feature. It sounds cool, but I wonder how long it will take Tesla to implement it, and if it will be accurate. They do have the technology, the engineering, and the data required to do this.

Transitioning to Tesla Vision

We knew Tesla was ditching radar in their rewrite of FSD Beta but we didn’t anticipate them removing it from cars as early as this month. In this support article, Tesla announced “Beginning with deliveries in May 2021, Model 3 and Model Y vehicles built for the North American market will no longer be equipped with radar. Instead, these will be the first Tesla vehicles to rely on camera vision and neural net processing to deliver Autopilot”.

The downside? New cars will have a limited version of AP at first, Autosteer will be limited to a maximum speed of 75 mph, and Smart Summon and Emergency Lane Departure Avoidance may be disabled at delivery.

Turning biodefense mode from the app?

John from TOSV asked and Elon confirmed. In the future, it would be great if Tesla turns it on automatically based on the quality of the air. Honestly, with all these wildfires, I’m waiting for Tesla to release the retrofit to the Model Y.
