When I took delivery of my Model S, the very friendly and knowledgeable person who walked us through the ins and outs of the car told us 'Remember, a Tesla is still a car'. Every time I talk to someone new to Tesla I use that piece of advice. This post is about things that are fundamentally different in a Tesla car from any other car. Things about both the car and the experience of buying one.
If you’ve just got delivery of your Model 3 and are looking for some of the best accessories to consider buying, you’ve reached the right place. Also, congratulations on your new Model 3! The following are products that we recommend because we really like them.

A Writer and a Software Engineer buy a Tesla Model 3…now there’s a User’s Guide! This is a fun and easy read for Model 3 owners and anyone thinking of getting a Tesla. I like that it covers the most common questions about owning/driving a Tesla but also discusses real-life examples.

Are you interested in the $35k Model 3 Standard Range (US only)? If so, here’s a first-hand experience on how to order it.
To be honest, I would probably go for the SR+, for me the Autopilot is pretty important and I wouldn’t get a Tesla without it. The cost of adding Autopilot to the SR is $3k that puts it only $1,990 from the SR+. Having said that, a good reason to go for the SR would be if it qualifies for State incentives but your SR+ doesn’t.
