    Needing to source the right-angled connecting short USB cables to suit Model 3. I specifically need the Micro USB option at the moment ... are these generally available? My initial searches didn't come up with any from UK. If we had a UK Tesla store at least I could buy some expensive ones ... but surely there are other suppliers. Any recommendations?

    Which end of the USB cable to you need to be right angled? There are plenty on amazon or ebay if you search for "right angle micro USB) whether they are quality is another matter

    To fit they need to be a specific shape with a longer part after the bend.

    I bought https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B074QJW3SD/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 but they're slightly too short - they only just reach the USB ports when the lid is closed (which I solved by using a hub, but that's not going to work for everyone). Really need something around 0.3-0.5m depending on how much slack you need. I haven't found anything of that specification, alas.

    The console has standard USB sockets underneath for cables to be routed to the phone. The right angled micro usb end for the phone clips into the bottom of the phone bay. They will need to be a specific fit. Everyone must be using these ... do you email Tesla parts ... cost? Other options?

    Yes, that's what I'm after, but to micro usb rather than USB C.

    Do the phone cables come with the M3 LR/P cars?
