I saw where the roof rack tabs are located on the Model 3, they seem quite close together and not so center. I wonder if my Thule cargo box would fit the location of the cross bars. Can someone provide the distance between the tabs ?

Thanks

We haven't seen what rack fits those yet. Tesla was testing them during the RC days but so far no sign of anything official

In case anyone from Tesla is watching, I strongly recommend longitudinal bars with removable and adjustable crossbars. Wind noise will be reduced, and flexibility in crossbar position becomes possible.

NB: this is based on negative experience with the Yakima Whispbar for Model S.
