    Just ordered the M3 AWD and I’m looking to get a charger for my home. Only issue is, my car is parked at the end of the drive, which is 20m away. I really don’t want to rip up all the slabs (only been down a year) and put a column up at the bottom of the drive. So my only option is either a charging cable 20m long or an adaptor. Anyone came up against this before? And if so what did you do?

    The charger is weather proof. Couldn’t you build something closer to the vehicle to mount the charger? The electricity line could be enclosed and routed along the side of the driveway.

    I'm not picturing your situation. Car is at the "end of the drive" but you don't want to "rip up the slabs" and put a column at the "bottom of the drive". These leave out important info, and they contradict what I imagine them to mean.

    Got it sorted. Company is running the cable so I they can fix the charger to a nearby wall.
