Ever since the very first car came to life in 1885, thanks to Karl Benz, we have tried to make them faster, more aesthetically pleasing, more affordable, lighter on fuel, eco-friendlier… and the list goes on! Over the last few years, car accessories have become an essential part of owning a car, and they’re a great way to inject some personality into your mode of transportation…

13 - Driving with the brakes on
For a mere $4.99, you could be the proud owner of this Batman brake light decal. Made from Vinyl, these stickers fit over your brake light so that every time you brake, Batman appears to those behind
12 - Ready in 60-seconds!
We’ve featured an oven for a car, so why not a microwave? This one also plugs in to your cigarette lighter, and affords you the opportunity to heat on the go. Perhaps not really the best idea while driving, but ideal for camping or for those working out in the cold – a quick cup o noodles will go down well!
11 - Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear
These are teddy bear rims, and they’re certainly a far-cry from the usual awesome after market rims you can buy for your car! Ronal’s teddy bear wheels are finished in silver / crystal silver, are very easy to clean and come in 3 sizes. They’re made in Germany and were quite popular in the 90’s. If you’d like a set for yourself, you’d have to look for them 2nd hand, as they don’t make them anymore.
10 - No pictures please
This totally illegal accessory is called Photo stopper, and its purpose is to obstruct your license plate, so that it can’t be picked up by speed cameras or toll roads. Their website does mention that they don’t condone the use of their product, and it’s up to you to follow the rules of the road. Is this product selling? Absolutely!
9 - Drive with caution
These are Drivemocion Car LED signs and they’re the perfect way to let other drivers know exactly how you’re feeling! They use light-emitting-diode technology, and with the use of suction cups, are mounted to your rear-view mirror. With a remote you can express feelings of happiness, anger, flirtatious, and even show the middle finger!
8 - See you on the flip side
In the UK, many drivers have purchased this rotating number plate. It’s their way of dodging the speed cameras. With a simple push of a button, the number plate flips over and covers your registration number. They first came to light in the James Bond films, but if you’re caught using one of these - expect to spend a bit of time behind bars!
7 - Finger Licking Good
And with that slogan, our next entry can only be about KFC. Although, it’s been called HFC – Hound Fried chicken, and that’s the actual fragrance of this car freshener. If you’re trying to shed those additional holiday pounds, this is not the one for you!
6 - I’ll take it to go
It’s not just you that gets thirsty while driving, your furry friend does too! So make their lives a little more comfortable on the road and buy them this To Go dog travel bowl. It fits into your cup holder and when you dog is thirsty, they can just lap up their water straight from their very own bowl, which does come with a removable splash guard.
5 - Workaholic
If that’s you, you will love this little desk that clips on to your car. There are different design options available, but the end result is the same. It makes our list today, because seriously, how often do you need to work on your laptop in your car? One of the company’s selling points is that you can keep your laptop secure while driving – but it does open you up to smash and grabs, especially when your laptop is out in the open!
4 - Thing of the past
Have you truly ever seen anyone driving around with one of these in their cars? The only time I would imagine this clothing hanger was ever used, would be if you happened to be a shirt selling salesman, and you were selling the shirts out of your car – otherwise, I promise your newly pressed shirt will be quite ok, as long as you pack it neatly!
3 - Kitted Out
There are so many options available to you, if you’re keen to modify the interior design of your vehicle that better suits your personality. Anything from an entire Star Wars collection, including seat covers, floor mats, steering wheel cover and more, to a My Little Pony Collection, unicorns, mermaids and of course, Hello Kitty!
2 - Bling a ling
These are rather pretty, but oh so unnecessary! They are crystal number plate borders, and come in both standard US and Canadian license plates sizes.
1 - A little OTT
Here are a few more examples of totally over the top car accessories. A tiny knitted jersey for the Jaguar mascot is one of them, and then LED lighting for this Toyota 86. I guess you won’t lose that guy in a crowd.
