    Has anyone confirmed that they have the potential roof rack attachments in their model 3? I saw these pictures and have heard rumors of a rack coming. I've seen an example of a vehicle that has the arrows but no attachment where these cuts in the seal are shown in the picture.

    Thanks!

    Yes. I noticed those arrows on our September delivery Model 3 and wondered what they were for. I confirmed they are on the December Model 3 as well. Can't remember if they were on the March one. Now we know what they are for!

    I'm over in the northeast and the one in the showroom had arrows but no slits or anything underneath where an attachment would be. It would be interesting to see if they all have the attachment point or if it's just the arrows on the glass for some of them.

    Interesting, it looks like maybe a raised bracket. Any way to tell if there's screw threads on the top of it? Might be tough to see without cutting the rubber strip.

    There's not enough room for screw heads. It looks like the rack will hook under the raised metal lip and clamp down the feet.
