    I just received my model 3 SR on Tuesday. I am looking at what the best way to setup home charging is. I will for sure have some type of Level 2 charging but here is what I am curious about. My electrical panel is at the back of my garage, I would like to have the option of charging my car in the driveway and not always inside the garage, hence I require a longer cable. The Tesla home charger with an 18′ cable I do not think will reach out to the driveway unless it is installed closer to the garage door. All I can see on Tesla website is the 8′ and 18′ option for it, although when I picked up the car the Tesla fellow mentioned that there might be a 30′ option but he was unable to locate it on the website.

    In this case am I better off installing a Nema 14-50 plug and going with some type of after market charger? If yes what would you recommend, ideally I would like to have a 30′-40’option if possible.

    Secondly, can anyone suggest any moulded car mats other than the Tesla or Weather tech ones that they are happy with? I found on partsengine.ca the U-Guard 3D KAGU Maxpider Custom Fitted Floor Liners which look quite nice but when I called to order they told me to wait 3-4 weeks for the 2021 model ones as the ones they currently have are for 2020 and will be slightly off on the fit. I would like to get something relatively quickly with the weather being what it is.

    Lastly , what shop would you recommend for paint protection film and window tinting.

    Thank you very much for your help!
