Perhaps you told the dealer that you want the MSport package (which includes roof rails). Otherwise, if you don't order 3AT as an option, you will get an X3 without roof rails. e.g., see this thread...

I think this is grossly unfair to lbjgh, whose advice was obviously intended to be constructive. If any of us experience an unexpected acceleration, we would do well to follow lbjgh's recommendations.

But since it is the DHP that would provide all the substance that he cares about, why should he even bother with MSport? DHP can be ordered without it.
