Tesla wall connector location

I have the model Y on order, and I would like to install the wall connector before it comes. The most convenient location for the connector would be in line with the door handle of the rear driver door. I would like to get the eight foot cord rather than the twenty foot cord, so there is not so much cord laying around. I measured the length out with a tape, and it appears that the eight foot cord will be fine. Anybody think that might be a problem? Thanks JK
I think this is because I was going to post that it would not change in the future. What could they add that would matter? Apparently, WiFi. I have not even installed my charger and I am already out of date.

Yeah, I at least installed mine, so I don’t feel as bad...but still. I almost bought the new one a minute ago, but I’m sure I’d take a hit on my “outdated” wall charger I installed last week.

I would go with the longer cord if there is still that option with the newest generation of wall connector. I have had mine installed for a month now and my 24’ cable stays mostly wound up around the built in cable wall mount without any hanging issues. Right now I only need about 4’ but when I get my Y to go with my current 3, I will need 24’ to reach both cars parked side by side.
24’ cable stores surprisingly neat and tidy:
