Accessories

Tesla come fairly well equiped, but they still need a few accessories. Some are specific to the Model 3, Model X, and Model S, some are specific to Tesla, and some are accessories that any other car could also benefit from.

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.

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.

Cheap door seals reduce Model 3 noise and dirty door sills

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. Spoiler alert: while it reduces the difference in volume it isn’t that noticeable, but they make a nicer sound when closing the doors :)

Install a hitch for your Tesla Model 3

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!

Tesla Model 3 all-weather floor liners

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.

Tesla all-weather mats for Model S at half the price

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.
