Custom license plate

Many people tend to live most of their life with the notion that a custom or private plates for your car are reserved for the rich and famous only. Oil barons and actors, or incredibly wealthy businessmen. The truth is, that the price might be slightly overblown, despite that most of the population still tends to think otherwise. While yes, it is still relatively expensive to get a custom license plate on your car and you do not see the average person getting it due to the fact that it is purely cosmetic and not exactly useful. Does it not just seem extremely cool at times? Maybe it’s the fact that everyone still thinks it is extremely pricey, but getting mistaken for a millionaire is just one of the few perks (or hindrances) you will be faced with when you get out of a car donning a custom plate. You could sit there arguing with yourself weighing your options on this matter, should you get a custom plate so it is easier to find your car and you will be automatically cooler, or save a decent amount of money? Some people think about such things while others just buy, it is entirely up to you.

Grip mat? Dash grip?

Whatever you want to call it, it is essentially a mat made from extremely grippy material. Grippy enough that it holds itself in place, while also keeping everything on it from sliding about everywhere. Now while it probably does not come with a guarantee of things not slipping, it has been tested by countless drivers around the world and people are still buying them, so they must be decent at least. You might be thinking to yourself “Why bother, I have a glove compartment to leave all my things in.”. But the truth is, no one likes blindly fumbling about in the glove compartment searching for things while driving. With a DashGrip you can leave all your most used things in plain sight, at arms-length. Be it loose change, keys, mobile phone, or travel card, the DashGrip will be there for you, on top of your dashboard.
