Must-Have Tesla Model 3 RWD Accessories - What You Need to Know Before Investing
Tesla Model 3 is one of the most popular electric vehicles (EVs) on the market, and for a good reason. It offers features that make it an attractive option for those looking to make the switch from gasoline-powered cars. Recently, a soon-to-be Model 3 owner shared their experience with us. They were originally going to get a Bolt EUV but dealers were marking them up to $40k, so after a demo drive convinced their wife they decided to spend a little more and get a RWD M3 instead.
The conversation continued with other owners sharing their experiences with their Model 3's and Y's. One owner had had their M3 LR for two weeks and loved it more each time they drove it. Another had had their Model Y now for a month and really liked it. The low end EV market was discussed as being such a disaster that it made sense to get a M3 RWD as a bridge vehicle until the M2/MQ comes out.
The discussion then moved onto what accessories are necessary when getting a new Tesla Model 3 RWD. Accessories mentioned included front license plate mount, quality mats, mud flaps, center console trays, cup holder insert, armrest pad, ceramic treat seats, key holders, center console surface wrap, curb rash rim savers, front grill mesh, jack pads, display screen protector, optional glass tint, front PPF, paint ceramic, door pocket inserts, larger sentry mode storage and door sill protectors.
It was suggested not to go into overkill mode when buying accessories for your new Tesla Model 3 RWD. Everyone should try the car before going all out with accessories as many may find they don't need or want most of the items listed above. Front license plates are required in some states and these come with the car already installed. Key holders can be useful if you have to give the vehicle to someone else and want to safeguard your key but this isn't essential. Jack pads aren't needed straight away and neither are door or cup holder inserts; wait until you've tried the existing ones first. Front grills aren't necessary either as EVs don't require them like ICE cars do. Door sill protectors also aren't necessary unless you're planning on keeping your car for longer than three years. External protectants may be worth investing in early however.
Overall, there are plenty of accessories available for the Tesla Model 3 RWD but it's important to remember that you don't need everything right away - take your time trying out your new car before investing in any extras!

Is it necessary to buy all the accessories on the list?
Honestly, you're going into overkill mode. Don't start out with your entire list; you may find that you don't need/want most of it. Try the car before going all out with accessories.

What are the benefits of having a Tesla?
Teslas have many advantages over traditional cars. They are all-electric, so you don't need to worry about gas or oil changes. They also have great performance and handling, with 0-60 mph times that can rival sports cars. The Autopilot feature is one of the most advanced driver assistance systems available, and the car's range and charging options make it easy to take long trips. Plus, they come with a suite of software features that allow you to monitor your car's performance, customize its settings, and even play games while parked.
What kind of maintenance does a Tesla require?
Tesla recommends that owners bring their vehicles in for service every 12 months or 12,500 miles (20,000 km), whichever comes first. This includes an inspection of the brakes, tires, suspension, and other components. Additionally, Tesla recommends replacing the air filter every two years or 24,000 miles (40,000 km). Other than that, Teslas require very little maintenance compared to traditional cars.
