Best Tesla Model 3 Accessories – Reviews
EV Wraps Tesla Model 3 Center Console Wrap
- Reduces fingerprints and smudges
- Protects the glossy surface of the center console
- Available in various colors
- May start peeling after a few years, needing replacement
The Tesla Model 3 center console is a notorious fingerprint magnet. Its glossy surface is hard to keep spotless, and even the cleanest of fingers will leave fingerprint marks and smudges on it.
A Carbon Fiber center console wrap will not only conceal fingerprints due to its dark matte finish but also protect the center console against permanent scratches, fading, and daily wear and tear. The center console wrap combined with a Touchscreen protector will help keep your Model 3’s interior in like-new shape for many years.
This wrap matches incredibly well with the rest of the interior. Installing this wrap might leave you thinking that a carbon fiber center console should be a factory option for the Model 3. If you are looking for a more discrete wrap, EV Wraps also offers a matte black variant of this product.

3D MAXpider KAGU All-Weather Floor Mats
- Carbon fiber-like texture
- Matches well the rest of the interior
- Excellent year-round protection for your Model 3 interior
- Easy to remove and clean
- Manufacturer “3D” logo is very noticeable
All-Weather floor mats will help you keep the interior of your Model 3 in pristine condition. Having All-Weather Mats is especially important in climates where rain or snow are common occurrences.
Tesla offers its own set of floor mats, but they are just traditional rubber mats that provide little added protection and don’t have the attractive design and texture of the 3D MAXpider Mats.
The 3D Maxpider KAGU floor mats are undoubtedly the best floor mats available for the Model 3. Stylish, resistant, and easy to clean best defines this set of floor mats.
Tesla Model 3 Carbon Fiber Spoiler
- Gives the non-performance Model 3 a sportier look
- Available in various colors
- Carbon fiber texture available
- Aerodynamic efficiency is slightly diminished.
While this is not a must-have accessory, an aftermarket spoiler for the Model 3 is an excellent addition for owners wanting to give their car a more sporty look. Installing a spoiler in this car can make it resemble the Model 3 Performance trim of the vehicle, which rocks a factory spoiler.
This trunk spoiler is for the most part a visual enhancement. Some downforce will be gained in the back but it won’t be significant enough to notice a difference unless you are tracking the car.
The glossy carbon fiber looks fantastic on the back, although some owners might prefer the more discrete matte carbon fiber variant.
Tesla Model 3 Wireless Charging Pad
- Can charge two phones simultaneously
- Blends in seamlessly with the interior
- Attractive, minimalistic design
- Takes up both USB ports
Wireless charging is a relatively new technology that has increased adoption substantially in recent times.
Pretty much every flagship smartphone supports it; Apple iPhones have supported it since 2017. It is very likely that your current smartphone is compatible with wireless charging — might as well have a wireless charger available to take advantage of it.
The TapTes Tesla Model 3 Wireless charging pad plugs into your USB ports and seamlessly blends in with the center console.
It boasts an attractive, minimalistic design, similar to the rest of the car’s interior.
It’s a great addition to your car if you have a wireless charging-enabled smartphone. Up to two smartphones can be charged simultaneously, side to side.
No need to worry about cables or plugging in your smartphone while driving. Place your phone on the charging mat and let technology do the work.
The only downside we found with this accessory is that it uses both of your center console USB ports. Some users might find that inconvenient as this Tesla Wireless Charger needs to use both ports constantly.
Door Sill Wrap protector for the Model 3
- Protects an area that is susceptible to heavy wear and tear
- Invisible. You won’t even notice its there.
- It won’t protect the door sill against exceptionally sharp objects
This simple accessory might sound like it is not needed at all as we all expect some wear and tear to develop in the door sill area. However, many Model 3 owners report excessive wear in this area of the vehicle; it can be easily scratched.
Apart from added protection, this accessory adds a stylish glossy cover to the door sills of both driver and the passenger sides. There is also a matte alternative if you’d prefer a less reflective surface.
The door still protector takes 5 minutes to install and its completely invisible once it dries up. It will help any owner keep the vehicle in pristine condition and retain value.
Tesla Model 3 Touch Screen Protector
- Protects your screen from scratches due to rings, zippers, etc.
- Easy install
- May need to be replaced every couple of years due to wear and fading
The Model 3 features an enormous 15-inch touchscreen as a control center for every aspect related to the vehicle. From air conditioning to exterior lights, the massive screen is one of the most distinctive elements of the car.
Just like any glass-based display, it is susceptible to scratches and general wear and tear. We’d think a display in the cabin of our car wouldn’t be vulnerable to this as much as a smartphone screen, but rings and other metallic objects that make contact with the display can leave permanent marks.
A screen protector will help avoid this as it protects the actual glass with a thin, replaceable transparent film that takes the scratches while leaving the actual screen spotless.
As with any plastic-based surface, it can get a yellow tone after years of use and sunlight exposure. You might want to replace it every couple of years to restore the original crystal clear look.
Due to its low cost, we consider it an excellent investment and a must-have Tesla Model 3 accessory as it will help you keep the center console display glass spotless without scratches.
AutoRover Tesla Model 3 Windshield Sunshade
- Especially made for the windshield of the Model 3
- Keep your vehicle cool in the summer
- Enhanced privacy when leaving your car outdoors
- Protects the interior console from sunlight degradation
- Roof sunshade is not included
This is another accessory that should be considered a must-have for owners living in sunny environments. Hot summers not only make the cabin hot and uncomfortable when the car is left outdoors but also the strong sunlight slowly degrades our interior when there’s nothing there to protect it.
A windshield sunshade is especially useful for owners that don’t use an indoor parking space or park their cars outdoors in the driveway frequently.
The windshield reflector works as a mirror. It reflects sunlight away, helping keep the car fresh and the interior pristine—no need to keep burning your hands with a hot steering wheel.
Another benefit of having a sunshade while parked is increased interior privacy. Less light coming in means the interior of the car is not as visible from the outside. It gives you peace of mind when leaving valuables inside your Model 3.

Allen Sports Deluxe Trunk Mounted 3-Bike Rack
- Installation doesn’t require any additional accessories
- Universal mount for virtually any sedan
- Padded frame to avoid direct contact with the vehicle paint
- Your license plate visibility might be obstructed when carrying several bikes
Not all bike racks can accommodate to the Model 3’s peculiar body panel design. Even though it is technically a sedan, the short trunk lid and long rear window give it a shape that can resemble a hatchback.
The Allen Sports Deluxe Trunk Mounted bike rack is a traditional bike mount that attaches to the trunk of your Model 3 and offers capacity for up to 3 bikes.
We were surprised to see how well it fits the vehicle considering the unusual rear shape of the car. Here is how it looks when in use:
The trunk can be opened as usual while using this accessory. There is no risk of breaking the glass with either the bike or the frame of the bike mount if we need to get access and open it while using the bike rack.
Overall, the Allen Sports Deluxe Bike Rack is an excellent accessory for any Tesla Model 3 and will enable you to bring your biking hobby to new locations.

Model 3 Interior LED lighting upgrade
- Brighter interior lighting
- Plug-in accessory. No additional adapters needed.
- Some people might find these LEDs too bright at night
The original lighting on the Tesla Model 3 can be considered dim. New LEDs improve not only interior visibility at night but also provide visual appeal due to their crisp, bright lighting. No more blindly riffing around in the dark.
This LED lighting upgrade kit for the Model 3 is plug and play, no need to change any wiring or additional modifications. To install, remove the original lights of your vehicle interior with the help of the included pry tool and plug in the upgraded LED lights.
Some people might find these a little too bright at night. If you are currently pleased with the cabin illumination of your car, we recommend you skip purchasing this kit.
Tesla Model 3 Performance Pedal Set
- Protects the original pedals
- Higher grip than the stock pedals
- Gives your non-performance Model 3 a more sporty look
- Installation could take up to half an hour
A performance pedal set another accessory for Model 3 owners wanting to give their vehicle a more sporty touch, once again resembling Tesla’s performance offering of this same vehicle.
However, apart from the visual appeal, this set of pedals can provide increased grip and surface area for safety-conscious drivers.
It’s a simple touch, but this is a nice detail that you will notice when getting into the car.

Tesla Model 3 Accessories Buying Guide & FAQ
Cosmetic vs. Functional enhancements
Are you looking for aftermarket accessories to make your Model 3 look appealing and give it a more personal touch, or do you prefer purely functional enhancements to have extra functionality in the cabin and throughout the vehicle.
Depending on your preference above, you might want to prioritize one type of accessories over another. If you’re going for the visual enhancements, you might want to prioritize the spoiler, but if you are looking for added practicality to the car, the center console wireless charger is incredibly useful for any owner.
Do Model 3 Accessories void the vehicle’s warranty?
Unless you are tampering with the vehicle’s electrical system or altering driveway components in a way that could make the Model 3 break down or make unsafe to use, none of the accessories mentioned above should void your warranty.
Although, if you decide to upgrade the factory LED lights with the brighter ones and notice anything unusual, install the original lights back. The aftermarket LEDs have the same voltage as the factory ones, but this is the only accessory mentioned in the article that connects directly to the electrical system on the Tesla.
Some final thoughts
Whether you’re looking for a simple cosmetic enhancement to your car like a spoiler or an accessory that will let you charge your Tesla virtually anywhere like the NEMA 14-50 adapter, there is a wide range of aftermarket products that can improve further your Tesla ownership.
Some of these Tesla Model 3 accessories are “must-haves”, essential to the ownership of the vehicle as they help keep your vehicle in top shape and provide essential comfort. Others are visual mods that you can use to improve the aesthetic of our car.
