Hi all gearing up for delivery of my SR+ white / black in hopefully 2-3 weeks and currently looking at the following:

18in Tesla wheel badges and covers
Decent waterproof (childproof!) mats for front and rear
Front wrap
Wireless Car charger for front console
15in Screen protector
Wrap for front console

Also considering Rear black/carbon spoiler

Is there is a decent UK based Tesla aftermarket and accessories specialist out there to do a bulk buy for everything I need rather than Amazon, eBay etc?

Also any recommendations on above list will be appreciated

thanks

I always use Abstract Ocean, great range of products matched with awesome service -www.abstractocean.com however they are based in the US but compared to the quality of the Ali Express stuff from China its leaps ahead and the delivery time is fast and import duty is very reasonable.

There's a french based company with a good range of stuff. Ordered a few things like the softer frunk spring, centre console wrap, door seal kit and pretty happy with the quality of these:

Premier Magasin Européen d'accessoires pour Tesla

How do you find the door seal kit? Does it make a noticeable reduction in noise?

This shouldn’t really even be a consideration for a car at this price but I do find the wind noise on motorways a tad annoying at times.

I suppose the only slight comfort is knowing that pretty much every Model 3 owner is in the same boat :(

Cold comfort I know.

I have not measured it but I would say there is a slight drop in noise at all speeds. The door closing sound is better and the door sills do not fill up with muck anymore which I do prefer :)

Not UK based but please avoid @TapTes.

Ordered 6 items 6 weeks ago, nothing has arrived yet. 4 out of 6 items not even dispatched.

Seller communication extremely poor.

Is that not because they are in China and more than likely impacted by the same Corona driven logistical / workforce challenges as other China based vendors currently? Lots of supply chain issues. Plenty of other members here have ordered via them before and recommended them, so I think you are probably unlucky timing wise. Communication could be better, if they are working.

I did say before - don't know if you saw - that pretty much everything on their website is quoting lead times well into March. Don't know if it said that when you ordered, but it does now.........

I thought that initially but then ordered 3 other items from 3 other China based suppliers. All dispatched their items immediately and have arrived.

5 out of 6 items were in stock when I placed my order. Now turns out they only had 2 of 6 in stock.

Interesting. Maybe depends on the region in which they are based? Anyway, I’ve no reason to defend TapTes really as I’ve not dealt with them personally. So I hope your order gets sorted. Ordered my accessories via Abstract Ocean in the US who were good.

China is a big place! There are only certain areas that have ground to a halt. I've had a successful order for Taptes in the past so I would think they are suffering from the effects of the virus disruption. Probably worth avoiding for a while to let them catch up on orders.
