You’ve got some spare change lying around and you want to improve your driving experience with some car accessories.
It’s not difficult to get quality car accessories in Singapore.
With petrol stations islandwide stocking everything from windscreen wipers to charging cables, your imagination is the limit.
However, sometimes you just want to shop in the convenience of your home.
That is why we’ve put together a list of the top car accessories you can get for under $20.
For this list, we’ve culled items from the top three e-commerce sites: Lazada, Shopee and Qoo10.
These items have been chosen because they fit three main criteria: value for money, good ratings and usefulness.
Car accessories from Lazada
This adjustable blind spot mirror should help you avoid those tricky obstacles when parking.
These mirrors can help during parking if your car doesn’t have mirrors that automatically tilt downwards when you shift into Park.
Attach these and you could save a wheel or two from being kerbed.
Price: $4.60 for a pair
A stroke of genius, this car netting that uses Velcro to attach to your boot liner helps you prevent stuff from rolling around.
How often have we bought loose items, placed them in the trunk, only for them to roll around whenever you turn a corner.
This is especially helpful for people who keep small items in their trunk like cans of air freshener or bottles or water.

Car accessories from Qoo10
This clever little number from accessory maker Baseus sticks to your dashboard or windscreen to hold your phone securely.
It has wireless charging for Apple and Android devices so you can do away with pesky wires running all over the cockpit.
What’s cool is that the locking arms open and close automatically when the holder detects your phone.
This is especially helpful for drivers who constantly need safe access to their phones on the move, like private-hire drivers.
One of the best car accessories in our opinion, this sunshield is essential in Singapore’s hot climate.
This anti-UV sunshield draws across your windscreen accordion-style, secured on either side by suction cups.
This makes it easy to deploy and stow after you return to your car.
It also helps keep your car cool and your interior free from the harsh rays of the sun if you park outdoors for an extended period.
