Ok, after four months with the car, here goes...



  • Wall Connector $500. Not necessary but I'd recommend biting the bullet before taking delivery, so you can keep the mobile charger in the car. The electrical work took 2 hours of time, at $130/hr. I highly recommend installing a dedicated 60-amp breaker and an efficient gauge wire which will give you 45 mi/hr of charge.
  • Charging Adapters $35. Car comes with the 5-15 and 14-50. I strongly recommend buying the 5-20. If you plan to charge at someone else's house on a roadtrip, ask them to send you a picture of their dryer plug. So far, I've needed the 10-30 and 14-30.
  • NEMA 5-15P to 5-20R Adapter $20. Strongly recommended in combo with Tesla's 5-20 adapter to "cheat" a 16-amp charge (33% faster charging). Must-watch this video, and must-read here, here, here, and here.

    Tesla OEM

  • Cargo Mats for Frunk & Trunk $70 & $130. Must-have some sort of trunk mat, since the trunk material is generally poor quality for heavy use.
  • Front Sunshade $75. Living in Florida, this is a must-have if you dont plan on tinting the top glass panel. The "front" is acutally the middle of the three glass panels, not the windshield.
  • Paint Repair Kit $55. Nice to have so you're ready for rock chips. So far I've had one that made it through the black paint and silver primer.


  • Aero Cosmetics Complete Car Kit $40. Highly recommended. Pricey but saves time for amazing results. Cheaper and better quality than CarGuys products. I liked it so much that I ended up buying this also.
  • Invisible Glass Spray Cleaner $4. Recommended that you have some glass cleaner that's not Windex. This brand is one of the best.
  • Wash Mitt 2-pack $16. Highly recommended compared to a wet rag.
  • Tire and Wheel Brush $8. It's important to segregate parts you use on wheels from parts you use on paint. This product is solid.
  • Grit Guard $8. Totally optional. Helps separate dirt in the bucket when cleaning. You'll see a difference in the water.


  • Tough-Pro Interior Mats $80. My opinion is that all-weather mats are a must-have. The stock mats are crappy, and all-weather mats make cleaning easier. These are cheaper than Tesla's all-weather mats. I'm happy with them but I'd buy the OEM Tesla ones if I could do it again.
  • Upgraded White LED Lights $13-$77. Must-have for the trunk. Optional for others. I replaced all 7 non-footwell. Easy install with a credit card. As a bonus, I have one left over, so PM me if you want it.
  • Kenriko Matte Wrap for Center Console $30. Must-have. Watch his install videos first. Customer service is excellent if you screw up the install like I did. The matte black matches the black leather interior perfectly. I'm sure the matte white is nice too.
  • Pet Cover for Trunk $45. I couldn't find anything better for driving my dogs, so I use this one with the back seats down, along with Tesla's rubber trunk mat. I'd say my setup prevents 90% of dog wear, and keeps any dog smell to a minimum.
  • Nomad Wireless Charger $130. Nice to have. Not available until end of November, but battery is integrated unlike the comeptitor's.
  • Rubber Cupholder Liners $25. Optional, helps with cleaning.
  • Drop Stop $20. Optional, makes life easier.
  • Air Compressor $25. Optional but recommended. Look for one with automatic shutoff.
  • Tire Plug Kit $8. If you're handy, this is a cheap solution to be ready for a flat. If you're not handy, get Tesla's tire repair kit.
  • Card Holder $5. Optional. Keep in your center console so valet has a way to hang your card key.

u/Pyroraptor · 2 pointsr/TeslaModel3

Really, the only thing I recommend you have on hand at the delivery is the screen protector. I bought this one and have been happy with it.

You probably also want to have some sort of USB storage device for your dashcam/sentry mode. This could be a USB thumbdrive, SSD, Harddrive, or SD card (with adapter). As long as it has a decent amount of memory and a decent read/write speed and is USB. You'll need to format it FAT32 for the car to recognize it.

As for other accessories, most people on here choose to wrap their center consoles. It comes with a piano black finish which looks really nice but scratches and shows fingerprints really easily. I suggest the Kenriko center console wraps. They have tons of colors/finishes from matte black to white, to carbon fiber.

After that it is up to you. There are TONs of products that you can use to modify your Model 3. Personal favorites of mine so far are the extra door seals that keep out dirt and slightly reduce wind noise. The aluminum pedals are a really nice touch if you don't have a performance model. All-weather floor mats are really nice. I have the 3D MaxSpider ones but I've heard really good things about the Tuxmats. The wireless chargers for your phone are a good accessory as well.

u/courtneymcnerdy · 4 pointsr/TeslaModel3

LOVE this little hedgehog! AND CONGRATS! I just got mine a week ago and I'm the happiest person ever.

- Floor mats (Not from Tesla directly but fit GREAT and great price point. High quality.)

- USB for recording when in Sentry mode and grabbing the recordings on the road - and

- A charger with an L shape so you can have your phone charge without the cord sticking out and it'll look sleeker -


Can't wait to see pics of her! Got a name picked out?!

u/james-the-legend · 6 pointsr/TeslaModel3

Enjoy! Got mine Saturday and love it.

Common recommendations;
Console wrap (ev wraps or Kendrick)
Wireless charger (Taptes works, but mine doesn’t sit very well in the location. Might be user error though)
USB drive (Samsung MUF-128AB/AM FIT Plus 128GB - 300MB/s USB 3.1 Flash Drive is great
Floor mats (Tesla)
Microfiber clothes
Something to clean inside (car guys super cleaner for me)
Something to clean outside (optimum no rinse)

Probably more stuff I’m missing but this is a good start

u/RASCHOON · 3 pointsr/TeslaModel3

Not sure why I can't seem to link to the post in the app, can only copy the text, so here it is from another thread. Hopefully it copies ok.

As requested, here are my pics of both the white console wrap and the white steering wheel wraps. I was initially worried about getting the white interior, but now it's my fave part of the cars look. I have the black exterior with white it Venom and am loving every minute of this car ("almost" makes me wish my commute was longer than 15 mins...haha).


Here are the links to what I used (I'm not affiliated in any way, just what I bought):

White Steering Wheel Wraps:


White Console Wraps:


You can also see that I bought the aluminum pedals too...pain to get on, but they look great:

u/dribblesonpillow · 9 pointsr/TeslaModel3

No, but it’s fast enough. If you have WiFi connectivity where you park, it will automatically copy all of your clips to a file share on your home network. So, you don’t have to remove the drive from your car to review the clips.

Samsung PRO Endurance 128GB Micro SDXC Card with Adapter - 100MB/s U1 (MB-MJ128GA/AM)

If you’re interested I can share the other parts that are needed to build this. It offers several other advantages too, such as repairing the drive automatically if the FS becomes corrupt, can sync Music to it from a windows share, can send Pushover/AWS/IFTTT notifications when copying/done, etc.

Edit: You also have the option of creating a WiFi access point so that you can connect to it and view the clips on your smart phone while away from home.

u/YOU_NO_LIKEY · 5 pointsr/TeslaModel3

I can’t recommend these floor mats enough, love them and great value.

I also bought the Qi charging mat, if you have the appropriate phone..

Last think I got was the Samsung 250 GB SSD for Sentry and dash cam.

That’s all I bought, other than installing a 220 line and buying the associated Tesla charging adapter for quicker charging at home.

Enjoy the car!!

u/Snow4us · 3 pointsr/TeslaModel3

This is awesome! Thx man was hoping to find a good sentry option. Currently using Samsung FIT Plus USB 3.1 Flash Drive 128GB - 300MB/s (MUF-128AB/AM) and I have to unplug and plug it back in every 2 or 3 days

u/crg300 · 1 pointr/TeslaModel3

I configured 2 months ago and edit button is still
there. Probably because I ordered AWD (non performance) with white seats. It also depends on your reservation number, if you were a previous owner and your location. Some people order long range models are getting them way faster than expected due to so many folks opting for AWD variants since they became available in late July (pent up demand).

As for car washes, everything I’ve read in the forum says only if it’s a laser no touch car wash. Most people recommend hand washing with two bucket method or something like this product below. The issue with traditional car wash machines is it leaves micro abrasions in the paint. Some people care, others don’t. Also, many folks are also paying a premium for paint protection film and/or ceramic coating. I’m planning to use the wash mentioned below and likely get paint protection film only on the front half of the car body.

u/pushdose · 2 pointsr/TeslaModel3

Honestly, I just use this stuff, Aero Cosmetics Wash Wax All

Spray on, wipe with damp microfiber, wipe with dry microfiber. Takes me 4 cloths to clean my whole car. Granted, I live in Las Vegas and rarely get anything than dust on my vehicle. It’s really easy and looks great, every time.

CarGuys Super Cleaner - Effective All Purpose Cleaner - Best for Leather Vinyl Carpet Upholstery Plastic Rubber and Much More! - 18 oz Kit

u/saskue87 · 1 pointr/TeslaModel3

Personally I would get these

They are pricey but this car is something you would keep for 10+ years if you can. Get the best of the best for it!

Besides that, a center console wrap is a must

u/iLoveCalculus314 · 2 pointsr/TeslaModel3

I use the products below and they work perfectly for my flow! I plug the reader directly into my phone from the car and the app allows me to review videos right away. This flow should keep me going until iOS 13 releases later this year. Highly recommend this workflow to others here.

Geekgo MicroSD card reader with a lightning end and USB end. I wish I bought one that also had a USB-C end so I can review videos on my iPad Pro

App: iUSB Pro (Free)

Essentially three options if you want great “coverage”:

3D MAXpider B07D9GMYG8 Complete Set Custom Fit All-Weather Kagu Series Floor Mats in Black for Select Tesla 3 Models

TuxMat Custom Car Floor Mats for Tesla Model 3 2017-2020 Models - Laser Measured, Largest Coverage, Waterproof, All Weather. The Best Tesla Model 3 Accessory (Full Set - Black)

New Tesla Floor liners:

There are other mats as well which are flatter and have less coverage.

u/SnitGTS · 8 pointsr/TeslaModel3

I used Wet or Waterless Car Wash Wax Kit (I did waterless) from Amazon and then CarGuys Hybrid Wax Sealant, also waterless.

I copied the links into this post, hopefully they work.

u/Koofteh · 6 pointsr/TeslaModel3

Is that your delivery appointment?

I didn't have any 'introduction' appointment, just picked up my AWD from the dump warehouse on Powell Street. I've heard of people waiting literally all day to pick up their car at that location so my only advice would be to have nothing else planned. 😁

Also bring something for TeslaCam, you never know when an accident can happen. I was hit soon after getting my car and my dashcam stuff was still in the mail. I recommend a high-endurance microSD with a good quality card reader for long term reliability but for now you can just use any USB flash drive you hand handy.

u/Eldanon · 1 pointr/TeslaModel3

Yep, I was surprised too when I was researching this. Ended up getting this tire patch kit and inflator on Amazon. About $60 for the pair. Used it once to remove a nail and patch it up, worked great. I also used to rubber cement on the patch that I bought for $3 at Autozone, not sure if I really needed it but figured might as well add that too.

u/BoulderTwinJr · 2 pointsr/TeslaModel3
  1. I only see short delays around 3 or 4 seconds.
  2. I haven’t noticed any issues with the dashcam recordings. I am using a 500G SSD which might be an overkill but I have room to grow. Samsung T5 Portable SSD - 500GB - USB 3.1 External SSD (MU-PA500B/AM) which got great reviews.
u/StetsonG · 3 pointsr/TeslaModel3

A Solid State Drive meant for computer use, while sharing a lot with a USB flash drive, is going to have a smarter controller and be rated for much higher read / write duty cycle.

u/mlm3 · 1 pointr/TeslaModel3

Assuming aero wheels, as mentioned above, dupli-color is a great match and will hide then rash nicely.

If you want to completely restore, new aero rims are $200 each. You can order through your service center.

u/TeslaLifeisGreat · 9 pointsr/TeslaModel3

For anyone wondering I ordered This MicroSD card and this Adapter after I had these issues and it has been working perfect ever since.

Something to do with the write speeds of the MicroSD cards being much better than the flash drives. I wish I still had the link to the website someone basically dedicated to testing all the different drives/sticks/cards but this was a suggested combo and it has been phenomenal.

u/stratospaly · 13 pointsr/TeslaModel3

I used a Dremel to smooth out the spot, 4 coats of paint and one of the sealant listed below. Very easy and looks good.

Dupli-Color AFM0360 Dark Shadow Gray Ford Exact-Match Scratch Fix All-in-1 Touch-Up Paint - 0.5 oz.

u/7h4tguy · 1 pointr/TeslaModel3

>Tesla is really protective when it comes to installing something in their car

So now it's some big secret for the voltage/current specs of the USB ports on the car? How do you think aftermarket charging pads get made?

He got the coil setup from a different wireless charger and QI charging is a standard (and so is USB).

Looks like 5V, 2A input, 10W output, so the coil resistance is pretty fixed:

u/sduck409 · 3 pointsr/TeslaModel3

I have this one - - liked it enough that I got them for my wife and daughter also. Worth noting - when using this, you may need to reset the plug after each tire - I have to pull the 12v connection and replug it. I believe that these draw an amount of current that is right at the edge of what the electronic fuse for this circuit seems to think is ok.

u/motab619 · 1 pointr/TeslaModel3

Seconded. The taptes off Amazon has worked great for me.

TapTes Model 3 Wireless Charger...

u/Toastwaver · 2 pointsr/TeslaModel3

Thank you! Are we talking Turtle wax or something like this?


u/Ocrizo · 9 pointsr/TeslaModel3

Dupli-Color Dark Shadow Grey is an incredibly close match to the wheel color. I would highly recommend you pick up some 400 grit and 800 grit sandpaper to smooth out the rash and paint over the marks.

This will probably happen again, so it will be nice to have an in-house solution. If you want tutorials, just search “dupli-color” in the various Tesla reddit communities.

u/avxtesla · 3 pointsr/TeslaModel3

Would something like this be a good choice for dashcam/sentry usb.
SanDisk 500GB Extreme Portable External SSD - USB-C, USB 3.1 - SDSSDE60-500G-G25

This one:
Samsung T5 Portable SSD - 500GB - Metallic Red - USB 3.1 External SSD (MU-PA500R/WW)


u/teslrrrrr · 2 pointsr/TeslaModel3

Yes, I've read a lot of reports from people complaining about how their USB drive gets 'hot to the touch' when either in hot weather or due to Sentry Mode. Don't forget the car records all 3 streams simultaneously even while driving.

In case others are reading, I would avoid getting something like this:

u/ScalpelJockey72 · 2 pointsr/TeslaModel3

You can use a usb splitter... super cheap

Onvian USB Splitter Cable Male to 2 Female Adapter USB A Cord 2 Port Hub for Data Charging Syncing (Only one Port for Data)

u/eddiem5 · 3 pointsr/TeslaModel3

I got a usb stick with a drive specifically for video cameras. Has worked perfectly ever since.

Makes for a small, neat setup and hasn’t failed once since about two weeks ago when I installed it.

u/SD_Enginerd · 2 pointsr/TeslaModel3

I used something like this for a while but 2019.8.5 was giving me issues with drive corruption...

So I ended up using a 12V to 2 USB power adapter and some USB extension cables to run power to the center console storage area with a couple of 3/8 inch holes drilled to feed the USB cables under the center console.

u/dcdttu · 3 pointsr/TeslaModel3

Aero Cosmetics Wet or Waterless Car Wash Wax Kit 144 Ounces. Aircraft Quality for Your Car, RV, Boat, Motorcycle. The Best Wash Wax. Anywhere, Anytime, Home, Office, School, Garage, Parking Lots.

Can't recommend enough.

u/wwwb0n3zcom · 2 pointsr/TeslaModel3

* IT WORKS!!! **

I got my USB splitter from Amazon right now... ( ) removed my USB thumb drive for music and TeslaCam and plugged in the splitter. Then the pad (both USB ends) and the USB thumb drive back in. It worked.... So I removed the USB splitter and plugged in both USB ends for the NOMAD - it worked. So I feel like an idiot. But I also feel that with people using a USB thumb drive for TeslaCam - NOMAD should tell people they MUST use both USB cables.

I'm so glad I don't have to return this or deal with support to get this resolved.

u/certainkaos · 1 pointr/TeslaModel3

TapTes. - 25% off for Select Prime Members (says Amazon with clipped coupon).

It started giving me the same error even with this one Samsung MUF-128AB/AM FIT Plus 128GB - 300MB/s USB 3.1 Flash Drive

Was working fine for 3 months. I think it started after the latest update. Not sure what to do. This seems fast enough.

I have been using this Samsung PRO Endurance 128GB Micro SDXC Card card since April with no issues at all. I selected it after researching the best memory cards for dashcams. It needs to be a “high endurance” Type.

The only difference with mine is that you can charge it horizontally too. If I need something, it’s easy to pick up without having to yank it off the connector.

Of course, if heavy dirt, I wash with foam cannon and 2 bucket. But that’s a rarity. Sometimes I just quickly power wash the exterior, bring the car in the garage and use the AeroCosmetics.

u/ThatOhioGuyFromOhio · 2 pointsr/TeslaModel3

This is what I have:

SanDisk 500GB Extreme Portable...

I have gotten the issue since, and it's surprisingly tiny!

The problem is that your current USB probably has a write speed of 300mb/s. This was fine in V9 with 3 cameras for dashcam, but with the introduction of the 4th back camera, your USB can't keep up. I would bargain to say that you'll need one that has at least a 400mb/s write speed.

u/jessejericho · 1 pointr/TeslaModel3

Have to be careful about the drive you select for dashcam / sentry etc. Need to be temperature resistant if you plan on leaving it in the car for any extended period of time. I narrowed my search down to these 2 products:

u/soupdogs · 7 pointsr/TeslaModel3

Memory card in a USB card reader combo seems to be hit and miss.

u/Starman2018 · 28 pointsr/TeslaModel3

If it's a small scratch, I've heard this works well. Personally though, I'd wait a bit until you are more used to the dimensions of the car. It will very likely happen again.

u/nathanboyd46 · 1 pointr/TeslaModel3

This is working well for me. Its lightweight, small, and not overly expensive. You'll have to format it to FAT32, when it arrives of course.

u/kampung_boy · 1 pointr/TeslaModel3

Dude, you can afford a $40,000 car, but not a larger drive? Also, this:
If you have USB flash drive that is constantly being written to that flash drive eventually is going to fail. Writing, writing a lot (which dashcams do) is exactly what wears flash drives out.

Instead, a longer lasting way to record dashcam and sentry video is to use endurance micro sd cards paired with a USB reader. The Samsung endurance micro SD card linked below is good for 17,520 hours of recording.

Put it inside a decent USB micro SD reader and you have a fairly reliable solution.

Car Guys All Purpose Cleaner and the micro fiber towel it comes with!
I wear black jeans and sometimes I see greyish marks on the seats and this cleaner makes everything go away. Make sure you spray the microfiber cloth then wipe down. You probably could spray the seats directly but I always just use the cloth.

u/afterlife19 · 5 pointsr/TeslaModel3

I picked up a Dupli-Color Dark Shadow Grey for Ford at a local auto store for $15 and it's almost an exact match.

u/short_bus_genius · 2 pointsr/TeslaModel3

There are many avaialble on the market. The ones for Model S / X will fit on a model 3, but the break pedal is about a half inch wider. If I were to buy new aluminum pedals today, I would probably buy this one:

Because it's specifically designed for the Model 3.

u/ftpguy · 2 pointsr/TeslaModel3

Get a wireless phone charger too. I bought this one rather than the more expensive Tesla one: TapTes Model 3 Wireless Charger Dual Qi Wireless Smartphone Charging Pad M3 Car Interior Center Console Accessories for Any Qi Enable Phone, Compatible with Tesla Model 3 - No Software Issue Upgraded

So far so good with it. I just plop my Pixel 3 XL in and it starts charging right away through my case. Much better than trying to plug it in.

Also, after you get your ceramic coat, you may want to consider mud flaps. I bought these but haven’t put them on yet: Tesla Model 3 Mud Flaps Splash Guards(Set of Four)

I plan to put them on this weekend.

u/levens1 · 1 pointr/TeslaModel3

I bought this and mounted it to the back of the display. The flexible goose allows me to position the phone in either portrait or landscape. The cable isn't pretty, but it works for me.

u/all_dayP · 1 pointr/TeslaModel3

Funny you mention this, but I just tried my work phone with that case on it not expecting it to work with my wireless charger yesterday and it actually worked. I got this one from Amazon.

I'm currently using a combination of below parts:

Pitaka wireless charger: (Sadly they don't make a magnetic case for my Pixel 3)

Metal Ring:

Long arm magnetic suction mount:


I take the regular magnetic mount off the long arm piece and put the Pitaka charger on there. Suction cup attaches to the back of touchscreen and arm curls to where the phone is just to the left of the screen.

People have been saying don’t use a thumb drives for sustained writes for years. Use an SSD people. They can be had for cheap.

Bought the wireless charging Mat that replaces the USB one provided with the car. I’m so happy with that $49 Amazon purchase. TapTes brand. Also purchased thr Boulder Pack Co. Compact True-Capacity 20000 mAh Power Bank (with 2 Fast-Charge Smart). And increases the charging Of anything using the Mat.

I added links products that I purchased.

TapTes Charging Mat:

TapTes Model 3 Wireless Charger Dual Qi Wireless Smartphone Charging Pad M3 Car Interior Center Console Accessories for Any Qi Enable Phone, Compatible with Tesla Model 3 - No Software Issue Upgraded

Pass through Charger:

Boulder Pack Co. Compact True-Capacity 20000 mAh Power Bank (with 2 Fast-Charge Smart-Output 3.0A Ports, Pass-Through Charging & TSA Compliant) Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and Android


Sabrent Hub a 3 Porte USB 3.0 in Alluminio Ruotabile Premium [ruotabile a 90°/180°] (HB-R3MC)

The hub is used to have more ports in the console to use for Flash Drives or SSD drives to record Sentry and DashCam and also play music from.

To give you an idea of how I set my car up I plug the charging mat directly into the pass-through battery. I plug the battery into one of the two USB ports in front of the console. The output from the battery is higher amperage and charges my phone much faster. The battery pack charges itself when I’m driving.

That frees up one of the USB ports where I plug in the USB splitter and in that splitter I plug-in multiple devices such as a flash drive to record My dashcam and mySentry

Edit: fixed a typo and also added an additional comments.

Don’t go Jeda. Their costumer service sucks and the charger isn’t that nice for the cost.

Get this Taptes charger. It’s half the price and even comes with splitters for your controllers and usb sticks.

I bought two of these. Had to buy two singles for some reason amazon wouldn’t ship a pair to California.

Century Spring C-77 2 Count...

Bought this spring.

There are several how to videos. The process is simple and takes 5 minutes. remove oem shock replace, remove second oem shock replace. Test opening function. Then pull up the cover that has the illuminated frunk release button and replace heavy spring with lightweight one.

One of the how to videos showed that doing this does not prevent the frunk safety catch from operating.

I find this air pump is easy to use. It's bigger than a book but doesn't take up much space in the subtrunk. Once you plug the tire then you'll need something to air it up. I set the desired pressure and the pump shuts off when the tire hits that pressure. And for maintenance, it's more convenient than feeding quarters into a air machine at a gas station and having to use the tire guage to get to the desired pressure.

Also for piece of mind, the aero wheels themselves are only like $200-250. With new tpm sensors and install it costs a bit more, but the bottom line is the damage isn't bad.

If you want a cheap fix, the "Dupli-Color AFM0360 Dark Shadow Gray Ford Exact-Match Scratch Fix All-in-1 Touch-Up Paint - 0.5 oz. " is only $13 and allegedly will cover up some of that. Not sure how it looks if doing more than a small portion though.

Reports say you can sand down the afflicted area of the rims and use this to make the blemish disappear.
