The i8 has it as a $6,300 option. That's the only car available in the US with them now. It should start making its way to the other series in the next few model years.

You can still do it, but dropping it off at the Welt after pickup is probably the best bet, the so called "quick turn." Then take the train to Paris and leave from CDG.

I don't have a problem with the temperature, but the time it takes to get warm. The thicker M sport wheel might be the culprit as mark mentions.
