Hi Folks. Have a Model S on order, and just getting to organising myself (as well as overdosing on forums/youtube as seems the norm!).

I currently have Thule roof bars and so on for my current car, and I'm hoping to re-use what I can. My question is... if I get the Thule feet and fittings, will my 118cm bars fit on them.... or are the car's fixing points too wide? I am getting the pano roof, just to be clear :)

I'd ask my DS, but ideally a measurement between the tops of the Thule fixings would be what I'm after, on the offchance anybody has them. Or is there a reason the Whispbars are more commonly used??

Thanks!

I have Thule bars, feet etc on a 2016 Model S. The distance between the outer edges of the top of the foot bracket differs between the front and rear. Front one is 1200mm and the rear is 1105mm. I fear the 118cm bars are going to come up a bit short on the front.

Thanks 4dme, that's exactly what I was after, much appreciated!

Looks like mine will be going on ebay and will need to get some longer ones, probably the recommended 135cm.
