    Well if you guys are like me you have gobbled up all of the Tesla accessories you can find whether OEM or third party while waiting for your Model 3.

    I travel a lot for work, so I thought a Tesla luggage tag would be nice to help differentiate my black suitcase that looks like everyone else’s suitcase.

    So I bought this: https://fireetsy.com/products/new-t...=cpc&utm_source=googlepla&variant=40932940872

    Unfortunately 2 weeks went by and after charging my card right away radio silence.

    Fill out their support form, nothing.

    Email the 2 email addresses you see on the site, nothing.

    Call the number on the site and a guy picks up confirming you’ve been the victim of a scam because he phone has had repeated bizarre wrong numbers over the last few months.

    Anyway, just a heads up to beware and pass on this one!

    Thanks for the heads up and GOOD FOR YOU that you bought with a credit card. You are always going to benefit from the extra layer of protection and can now get your $ back. I never buy from an unknown source without using my credit card when I can.

    Absolutely! American Express is great with situations like this and of course my new card is already on the way. In the interim, Apple Pay was already updated for the new card that I don't even have yet!

    I always use PayPal with new vendors. Much safer than giving them your cc#.

    That's an interesting point -- PayPal is definitely strong when it comes to supporting the buyer.

    If it isn't too much work, would you mind sharing what you've found over the months/years? Obviously RPM Tesla, Evannex and Tsportline.com stand out as well as Amazon offerings etc. but I come across new websites weekly that are set up to sell accessories - just nothing worth mentioning in the same league.

    Just some things here and there to help pass the time!

    • Banner for the garage
    • Parking sign for the garage
    • Supercharger iPhone charger
    • Bunch of t-shirts
    • Thermos
    I think that's it. I always have my eyes open for accessories though :)
