Hey man, this is excellent. Thank you for taking the time to do this. I loved that bumper lip and sure it would match the Civic's sporty stance!

@samaspire - Thanks a lot for the list. Found many items that I didn't know were available and are very useful.

Some suggestions to add from my side. Not adding links as these are across multiple sites. Some of these I have bought and used.
  • Car DVR (I have a mirror mounted one)
  • Compass/Thermometer/Hygrometer (I have a compass/thermometer combo)
  • Inclinometer (for Jeeps/Gypsies) (Have one in my Thar)
  • Driver Armrest (for cars that dont come with one). May require some drilling.(Added this for my Swift when it was available at Maruti as an accessory)
  • A DC to AC converter (I have a Belkin one)
  • A fire extinguisher (I have one)
  • Tire Pressure gauge(Have an analogue one from GP road)
  • Mobile Holder to view Maps/Navigation (Am on my third one)
  • Under-seat plastic tray to hold car cleaning cloth/other miscellaneous items (from any household items store)(Have this on my Thar)
  • ORVM Blind spot convex mirrors(You stick these on the edges of the mirror to catch any two wheeler hiding in your blind spot)(Have this on my Thar)
  • Portable powered air compressor/Foot pump (On wish list)
  • Noodle Mesh Mats(cheaper to buy and DIY than get at 3M etc)(On wish list)

Excellent Thread

Couple of additions from my side. Using these items for quite some time now.

- Silicon soft car key cover. Good grip and protection for the key.
- Soft PU armrest cover. provides cushioning and support on long drives.

Both purchased from aliexpress.

Your suggestion is good, but which model do I start with?
But I'll give it a try.


I have my doubts too, but customer feedback from various listings say that it works. I will confirm when I have installed the arrows. They have been lying in a box for the last month.

Any model with which you have a personal experience would suffice, I guess.

As an e.g.: I found this male harness adapter for the OEM HU for Toyota Etios/ Liva after hours of search. Couldn't find this in India in online/ offline shops. The keyword here? The model number (CA1816) which in turn was found after quite a bit of research.

W.r.t the integrated turn indicator, I too am awaiting your feedback Somehow I was sceptical about it earlier, looking at the images the vendors have shared.

Amazing thread, samaspire! I frequently find myself checking such accessories out online when I've nothing better to do and I completely understand the pain you've gone through to compile them beautifully. I'm sure all car owners, old and new, will find this thread extremely helpful. Two thumbs up!

Thanks a lot for the fantastic and comprehensive collection of accessories for the car.
I certainly am going to get the seat back organiser and the bumper guard rubber trims.
I was just browsing through Aliexpress and realised that there are loads of different kinds of accessories available; too many choices.
One could spend hours shopping and end up buying some unwanted stuff as well in addition to the useful ones.

Looks promising, I get severe neck/shoulders pain after driving in traffic for more than 3 hours everyday.

Yeah, too many things on Aliexpress. I usually go in the automotive accessory section there and sort the list by 'Orders'. That lists the most popular ones.
