List of unusual but highly helpful car accessories
Thanks to the fast-rising levels of air pollution in metro cities, road users are prone to respiratory diseases. It’s not uncommon to see people switching on air purifiers in their residences and office spaces the moment they get there. Many air ionisers and purifiers that can help you breathe fresher air costs as less as INR 345. Even the more sophisticated models don’t cost above INR 7,000.
LED wheel lights with tyre pressure monitor
This is one really affordable car accessory that not only helps you enhance the looks of your car but also lets you monitor the tyre pressure. These lights are installed on the top of the tyre valves and give the car’s wheels an attractive glow when they are in motion.
From global warming, most parts of India are recording very high temperature in every season. On a hot, sunny day, a car’s cabin can heat up excessively. Hence, even the most potent air conditioners with the biggest compressors take time to cool the cabin. Fortunately, there’s an accessory that keeps your car cool even when it’s parked. Installing a solar-powered fan that fixes on the window glass helps the hot air to escape the cabin and let the cooler air come in. Using this accessory, you can keep your car’s cabin cool even when it’s parked directly under the sun.
A solar sun shade is an umbrella for your car. It’s a handy accessory for all those who need to park their car in the open.

Still, a smart way is to buy multiple units of this accessory and convince your friends to buy the extra units from you.
