Wiki Model Accessories Mega List / Cheat Sheet

I have compiled a list of all the Model Y accessories that I find useful, to possibly save other members the hours of research I’ve done, and lessons learnt from accessories that either did or didn’t work well on my M3.

I haven’t included items that I think are pointless, such as the screen protector, which is not necessary for protection on a screen that can’t be dropped, and not necessary for cleaning as the screen is very easy to clean with a dry microfibre cloth, and also not necessary for preventing reflections as I’ve had no issues with reflections at all.

If anyone has any suggestions for decent accessories then please share them, if I buy any of them I’ll add them to the list.

In no particular order:

  1. Tesla key fob: Model 3/Y Key Fob - Makes opening frunk and unlocking charge port much more convenient, also acts as a keycard even if fob battery runs out, meaning you don’t need to carry a keycard.
  2. Tesla console accessory trays: https://shop.tesla.com/en_gb/product/model-3_y-console-accessory-trays - Tesla don’t include these for free anymore!
  3. Power boot lid foot sensor: https://www.greendrive-accessories.com/en/products/302/-rear-trunk-lid-with-foot-tesla-model-3-2021-3701388104935.html - Great for opening the boot when your hands are full.
  4. Boot side storage bins: https://tessories.uk/product/model-y-boot-storage-bins/ - Just over half the price of the genuine Tesla ones.
  5. Ultra bright boot LED: https://tessories.uk/product/model-y-boot-light/ - Much brighter than the standard little light.
  6. Cup holder stabiliser: https://tessories.uk/product/model-y-3-cup-holder-stabilizer/ - Still allows use of big bottles, but keeps smaller ones steadier.
  7. Jack pads: Jack Pads for Tesla – Tessories - Essential if you have a jack without a large rubber saddle.
  8. 3D all weather floor mats: Amazon.co.uk - 80.59US $ 54% OFF|For Tesla Model 3 Car Waterproof Non slip Floor Mat TPE XPE Modified Car Accessories Fully Surrounded Model Y Special floor mats|Floor Mats| - AliExpress - Great for winter use, keep the carpet mats nice for summer.
  9. Sandisk 128gb max endurance microSD card: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B084CJ9T2R?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title&th=1 and USB adapter: https://www.amazon.co.uk/SanDisk-SDDR-B531-GN6NN-MobileMate-USB-Reader/dp/B07G5JV2B5?pd_rd_w=HNYZj&pf_rd_p=93639d66-4333-47a2-9afc-2b6ef148d92c&pf_rd_r=Q8AT2W8A033P40RS4ED8&pd_rd_r=10bd3e12-165f-4107-9860-22483eaa02ed&pd_rd_wg=aV1Zg&pd_rd_i=B07G5JV2B5&psc=1&ref_=pd_bap_m_rp_1_sc - Tesla USB stick is not designed to be constantly written to.
  10. Kwmobile keyfob cover: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B07SPL9NB6?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title - Protects keyfob, enables it to be attached to a keyring, and makes finding the buttons easier.
  11. Real carbon fibre spoiler: https://www.greendrive-accessories.com/en/products/511/-6329-performance-spoiler-tesla-model-y.html#/1421-type_of_carbon-carbon_matt - I have the matte one, which looks identical to the Tesla Performance spoiler.
  12. 2022 Stainless steel pedals: https://www.greendrive-accessories.com/en/products/205/-8442-custom-pedals-tesla-model-3-and-tesla-model-y-3701388102610.html#/1143-color-grey/1772-tesla_model-tesla_model_3_and_tesla_model_y_after_2022 - Make sure to get 2022 ones, the brake pedal one is curved and doesn’t have the cross on the back now.
  13. Frunk shopping bag hooks: Front Trunk Hanging Hooks for Model Y – Tessories
  14. Boot shopping bag hooks: Model Y Trunk Hanging Hooks – Tessories
  15. Black door latch covers: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/255269868872?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=o7ttrtJrT3u&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=rnqCLcR6T8S&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY - OK not essential, but I like them.
  16. Tesla Frunk carpet mat: https://shop.tesla.com/en_gb/product/model-y-carpet-front-trunk-mat - Very cheap for genuine Tesla!
  17. Matte black Tesla T badge covers: https://m.aliexpress.com/item/1005003266039362.html?spm=a2g0n.order_detail.0.0.46cff19cC4o1ym - Don’t bother with the replacement metal black badges, I had them on the M3 and they corroded from the winter road salt!
  18. Paint touch up pen: TESLA DEEP BLUE PEARL PPSB TOUCH UP PEN REPAIR PAINT BRUSH SCRATCH MODEL X S | eBay
  19. Temai phone mount: https://www.amazon.co.uk/TEMAI-Model-Gravity-Phone-Mount/dp/B09B6X8131/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?crid=3NX5PSLJBXMDA&keywords=temai+model+3&qid=1648981237&sprefix=temai,aps,52&sr=8-3 - Great for Google maps, Waze or Apple maps.
  20. Mud flaps: https://tessories.uk/product/model-y-mud-flaps/ - Much better looking than the standard front flaps.
  21. Coloured front footwell ambient LEDs: Footwell Mood Light - Tesla Model 3 and Y or colour changing version: https://www.greendrive-accessories.com/en/products/661/-variable-color-rgb-led-light-with-remote-control-for-tesla-3701388107264.html - Such a shame Tesla didn’t include colour change ambient lighting like most other manufacturers!
  22. Coloured rear footwell ambient LED strips: https://www.greendrive-accessories.com/en/products/498/-6109-ambient-lighting-in-the-rear-footwell-tesla-model-3-and-model-y.html#/1295-color-white - Add some light to the rear footwells.
  23. 4 ultra bright door puddle LEDs: https://tessories.uk/product/tesla-ultra-bright-led-lights/ - Standard ones are really dim.
  24. Child seat protector: https://tessories.uk/product/kids-car-seat-mat-protector/ - To protect the white seats from seat marks or muddy feet.
  25. Retractable cargo cover: https://m.aliexpress.com/item/1005003779514637.html?spm=a2g0n.productlist.0.0.2e8a65c9uX0bGZ&browser_id=e312a73c5f454426ac121835a46560f6&aff_trace_key=&aff_platform=msite&m_page_id=gxdogrgzsmwcavar17feee79fbc6f9deffaa6f6353&gclid= - Because Tesla doesn’t include a parcel shelf currently.

I got my Y in late May 2022, and started to install some simple accessories.

Blue LED Lights from Aliexpress : 8 lights for $35. Lights are nice and I will now leave the interior ambient light on while driving. Shows well in underground garage type lighting and darker. Obviously during daylight, the door puddle lights are not visible at all. Passenger side ambient light was extremely difficult to remove.

Amazon Haocess Carbon Fiber Center Console Sticker PLATE for $16. Cup holder plate clicked in and fits perfectly even without using the tape on the underside. Sliding center console door is not very thick and will not retract on its own. But quality and finish is very nice and I usually have acidic McD's coffee spilling and my garage remote + keys scratching up my M3's console so with the carbon fiber plate, my Y is well protected.

I bought a lot more accessories but haven't had time to install them yet. Will post after I install them.

Huh sorry I should have been clearer. Works a treat in M3, not MY. Might work in LHD versions but not RHD. Not enough clearance around the USB socket.

Would be fine on a short drop cable and functional, but not as neat as the advert claimed.
Thanks for reply. Got a model y so I’ll give it a miss. Thinking of the tparts module but worried the harness is not there as some in the US are finding out.

Just fitted the T parts module tonight to my new MY. It was about £65 delivered from AliE.

Data cable is present and correct - only difference to the videos is it is taped with some really strong fabric type tape. Due to the limited access it took some time to remove. YMMV. This was the hardest part of the process.

Here’s the video I followed and is accurate (apart from the sticky tape!).

 
Can anyone recommend a good boot cover for a dog? The best ones I've found so far seem to be these

Tesla Model Y 2021 Onwards (5-seater only)


seeing if anyone has them or other suggestions.

Metal pedals and the new USB unit arrived today. It was some hassle getting that fabric tape off! And then I spent ages trying to bend the cable the right direction before realising I was trying to put it in upside down. But it's in now! And that's all that matters. Now... what can I do with it.

I have an old PS4 controller, any good? :D

Haha - yes - it’s hard to convey how difficult it was!

Now you should be able to play music off a usb drive (or have a custom light show subject to folder creation etc) or plug in a game controller.

Must admit, I haven’t got as far as researching the controllers yet. But the car just installed 2022.28.2 which puts the games (sonic / cuphead) back, so may look into it.

I plugged in the USB drive and actually couldn’t find where to access the music stored on it. Had a bit of a play with file system formatting and still no luck. Will give it another go tomorrow and see whether I can get any joy. Not fully convinced the new USB module is working as have very little to test it with…

Anyone have other options for the boot & puddle LED's? Tessories don't do them anymore...

Abstract Ocean. Not the cheapest, but seen as the automated window drop is intrinsically linked to the puddle lights, not something you want to cheap out on.

With our 2019 M3P, I bought some cheaper ones from AliExpress. I found when the front and rear doors were opened at the same time on the same side of the car that the puddle lights dimmed dramatically. I contacted Abstract Ocean before buying a set from them. They said this happens to a small degree with all of them but that they chose puddle lights that have a minimum of this effect. I can confirm that the problem is sorted when using the Abstract Ocean ones (and if they dim at all it is imperceptible to me). So I also recommend the AO ones. If I end up installing them in the Model Y I will be going AO.

Hi, I have a UK MYLR Sept 2022, got the data module fitted. But I cannot find the data port to plug the mini usb extension cable into to add data. All I see is a big plastic housing in RHS footwell/wing with a lot of connectors plugged into it but cannot see any usb data port…

At some point between Q2 & Q3 they stopped running the data cable from under the glovebox to the data module. You can run it yourself by following this video:


If you install any new footwell lights you can do it at the same time (as you remove the trim in the footwell).

And acknowledgement from tparts of the process:

So my all-weather mats from aliexpress turned up today. Is anyone else of the opinion that they're a bit... crap? I expected the fit and quality to be loads better. I've had to force some of the mats down in places and it doesn't look to be a great fit. I also don't know what the rear liner is for as it doesn't seem to fit in any of the spaces available...
