    Hello!

    Excited to be picking up my TM3 tomorrow. As a new father, I have a question as to where I can safely place my child’s rear-facing car seat. Does a model 3 recommend/allow it being placed in the middle seat? My wife’s bmw does not reccomend this and says the car is not equipped for it, but I was hoping the Model 3 would be!

    Any help is appreciated!

    Yes, but seat belt only in the middle seat. Latch is only for the window seats. You'll probably also want a narrow width seat, because the two window seats will be almost unusable with a regular width seat. I use a Diono Radian RXT with an angle adjuster, rear-facing in the middle seat.

    Thank you! Sounds like ours is going to have to be behind the passenger seat for the time being.
