Which Tesla Model 3 Accessories Should You Buy (And Not Buy)?


Let’s take a look at what accessories make sense for the Tesla Model 3, and which ones you should probably avoid.

As we previously pointed, the Tesla Model 3 is wooing people to stretch their budgets. We’ve learned that many new Model 3 owners may have driven a budget compact car in the past. It’s also important to note that the car is attracting a wide mix of buyers. Many Model 3 owners already own another Tesla vehicle (or two), and/or are previous luxury car owners. While one family may be scraping together loose change and trimming some fat to make Model 3 ownership a reality, others find the car inexpensive and less extravagant compared to luxury cars they’ve driven in the past.

Due to the vast assortment of Model 3 owners out there, we’re also seeing a surge in aftermarket purchases, upgrades, etc. Overall, the aftermarket and accessory market has blown up in recent years. Tesla vehicles are surely considered premium by many people, but they are arguably not nearly as upscale as many traditional luxury cars.

This is especially true of the Model 3, since it’s Tesla’s least expensive offering. For this reason, many buyers want to do whatever they can afford to make their car unique and increase its functionality. We’re talking about tinted windows, wraps, coatings, spoilers, special interior treatments, floor mats, a wireless phone charger, a sunglasses holder, a change holder … and the list goes on and on.

With the plethora of options out there, how does one even begin to decide which accessories to consider?

The Money Guy calls himself an expert in the field. He reminds us that his first car cost him $1,000 and he added $4,000 worth of accessories to it. Now, he’s done the same with his Model 3. Check out the video for Brian’s opinion on several Tesla Model 3 accessories. He makes it clear that none of the accessories were free or are being promoted for a particular company. Brian bought them all himself and is sharing them because he believes they are worthy.

Range: 310 miles; 136/123 mpg-e. Still maintaining a long waiting list as production ramps up slowly, the new compact Tesla Model 3 sedan is a smaller and cheaper, but no less stylish, alternative, to the fledgling automaker’s popular Model S. This estimate is for a Model 3 with the “optional” (at $9,000) long-range battery, which is as of this writing still the only configuration available. The standard battery, which is expected to become available later in 2018, is estimated to run for 220 miles on a charge.

A console wrap from Amazon is a nice accessory. Notice all the dust on the console. It scratches pretty easy also. So for about $30, that can be protected and made nicer than the piano black consoles. I also bought the trunk and frunk protectors from Tesla made by Weathertech.

Hi Steven, couldn’t find the link to his video on the article but here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SIedWf6M-4

Its embedded at the top of the article. Let me know if it’s not working properly

I have the Max Spider mats too and like them. I also tinted my windows at 35. Another accessory/option is getting a ceramic nanocoat (which I did as well).

This is too long to go through.
However, for our model S, we bought Abstract Ocean LED lights. HUGE difference.
While I have not seen the M3 Interior, I would recommend them for new owners to look at.

Re wireless charging phone pads, I tried both the Jeta and the Nomad and the Nomad was SOOOO much better. Highly recommend trying that instead. My phone slipped off the Jeta but never slips off the Nomad.

Like the money guy show, but don’t like the M3 wireless charger mentioned, more than reasonable $100 for a charger? maybe added “Tesla Tax”? I went for $49.9 TapTes wireless charger, works great till now. https://taptes.com/products/wireless-phone-charger-pad-for-tesla-model-3
