In the good olden days, the top 8 accessories were :

1 Cassette-Radio player

2 Reverse Musical horn

3 Seat covers

4 Steering Wheel cover

5 Idols of Gods/Goddesses

6 Floor mats

7 Body covers and

8 Sun Control Film.

After-market AC units, luggage carriers, Crash Guards were also very popular and a-must for taxi segment vehicles. Not to forget, the tri-color-flag-holders.

Now-a-days, too, things are not that different.

Reverse Cameras, Fog lights, Video Player Screens, PVC vinyl sheet Flooring, mobile phone chargers and mini fridges have replaced some of the items of the yesteryear's.

My Top 5 items are in no particular order:

  1. Music System (2 Din for starters) with better speakers.
  2. Reverse car parking assist
  3. Dash Camera - Helps in case of accidents and catching perpetrators of vandalism.
  4. Tyre Inflator & 2 - 3 tonne Jack
  5. Window hammer & Flashlight

Also I wish to include, Cabin Air Purifier (not negative Ion generator), with HEPA filters.

For Driving security: one should consider adding following:

  1. LED DRLs
  2. Fog Lights (LED based)

I would like to add one most crucial thing in above list - A dashboard Camera. I am surprised that still there is not much awareness of using car dashboard camera in India.  It can literally save car driver from going behind bars in case of any accident and driver has not at fault.

I can post various features to be look before buying dash cam but I will post it on request only bcos I dont' wish to make the post long.

Also you can buy garmin, transcend, hp of YI dash cam from amazon, flipkart, snapdeal or you may look for Indian reseller selling dual recording dash cam like 

Have a safe driving !
