    Putting this out there, I am looking for a used good working order roof rack for my wifes 2013 Tesla model S. Not an immediate need so in no hurry should this take a few months or even a couple years to find at the price I am looking to spend, $200 local to Colorado Springs or an hours drive proximity from here would also be fine. I will buy from anywhere but unsure what shipping costs would be, my zip is 80916.

    If you have an old one laying around you dont use or maybe cant use any longer if you sold the old car think of me, I know my kids will grow and I will need it for my future family road trips since we wont be able to use the legroom space for storage any longer.

    Thanks Tesla peeps and broader universe!

    still in the market but for clarification the specifics of gen1 roof rack were those made from 1/2012 - 5/2015

    anything after 5/2015 is gen2 and would not work for my early S, 1/2" difference in the spacing from what I have read.

    Still in the market and see gen 1 racks popping up for sale for the price I am looking to buy, just a matter of time but thought I would bump this again incase someone else wanted to sell and saw this first.

    If anyone has the Whispbar Fit Kit K704 for sale that is what I would need to use the rack on my car. Otherwize I will be buying another and selling that one specifically as gen2 for newer cars.
