M sport and cinnamon interior

According to the website and the ordering guide you can't get cinnamon interior with M sport.
Reading another thread it sounds like you can get it.

So can you or can't you?

The only thing I have ever noticed is you might be less likely to get a loaner if you didn't buy the car there.

Why does my fan always blow hot air?

It is summer but when I run my interior fan it feels like the heat is on. It seems hotter than the ambient temperature. If I run the AC it is fine.

What's up?
