Extending a chrome flush pipe for a WC

I've just bought a traditional low level cistern for my WC pan, and now trying to find a chrome exposed flush pipe to connect the toilet to the cistern.

However, the back of the toilet pan is 350mm away from the wall meaning I can't find a standard chrome flush pipe long enough to connect between the cistern and the pan! (WC pan is cemented into a basement floor and so I don't want to touch it)

The 2 ideas I have are as follows:

1) use a chrome bath waste pipe with a 90 degree bend. I managed to find one that is 300 x 600mm x 38mm

2) use a standard low level chrome flush pipe, and try to extend one end of pipe to reach the back of the pan. However, I can't find anything I can use to extend it by about 80-100mm.

3) make a 80mm deep stud behind the cistern to bring cistern closer to the pan - but really don't like this option as will look pants.

Any ideas / advice much appreciated as always.

Another option, is to buy a high level chrome flush, and cut out a section of it, where one pipe joins to the other and add it into the end of a low level flush pipe.

This will end up quite an expensive flush pipe though
