Suggest me some car gear....
So I totaled my car Halloween 2021....

Got a used Mercury Milan 2010 now....







So I have floor mats coming, it's snowing so it's needed asap.... I have a front passenger wheel well "fender" cover coming, part of the front bumper is missing because whoever previously didn't replace that part for whatever lazy reason. I have front window "rain guards" I need to install still. I have a brand new dashcam that is surprisingly great, with a ghetto rigged back camera. A Bluetooth FM transmitter for the 12v cigarette port. A "fuzz buster" I need to install. An Ac\dc adapter for home ports, and phone charger.


Edit: and a phone holder\clip that holds my phone directly above the speedometer dash portion, I use when I need my phone for GPS.


\edit



Anything else worth throwing in the car? Still looking for car seat covers that dont look ugly as fuck after installing...

I always keep a window breaker / seat belt cutter secured within reach of the drivers seat. I use SKU 9747547.

edit: a flashlight that uses AA or AAA batteries is also a must have imo

I don't know where you are located, but if its anything like the UK where garage forecourts don't bother with airlines anymore, a 12V portable air pump is a must.

Not very exciting I know, but useful. I've only had to use the spare once - but found it was at about 8 psi because I hadn't checked it for years lol.

Almost all cars have a glass break equipt ;) the driver head rest comes out and the "pointy" tip is for breaking the window.... But no seatbelt cutter.





Flashlight - added
Tire pump - I have one somewhere around the house, untill I find it, I have a can of fix-a-flat with the spare in the trunk.
