It’s a longstanding problem with various Tesla models: the chrome door sill scratches really easily. If you want to make sure your car retains its value and you protect the door sill, you can buy some simple products that will keep it from getting damaged so quickly. Here are our favorite picks.
Best door sill protection for Tesla Model 3/Model Y
EV Wraps Door Sill Protector for Model 3
Electrek’s pick for Model 3 owners.
This is another one of those product’s we’ve listed as must-haves for owners of most Tesla models — at least those made in the past and yet to be made that have super-scratchable chrome door sills.
I think it’s important, and most likely will come as a surprise to many. From my experience with the Model S and what we are also seeing on some Model 3s, the chrome door sill scratches easily.
There aren’t many options to pick from — nor difference between them — since these are such simple accessories, but our favorites for now are the EVWraps protectors which you can get for about $20.
