Jack for i8

I'm planning to change my wheels but I couldn't find an easy way to jack up the car, the manual points to some plastic parts in front of rear wheel and back of the front wheel as the point for jack. I could not find a jack to fit it, any idea?

They are the jacking points, I use a trolley jack with a rubber pad, I couldn't locate a specific adapter like you get for a Porsche or Audi for example.

I put a hockey puck on top of a low-profile trolley jack if I want to lift one wheel temporarily. I use the QuickJack in order to lift the entire car by the same plastic jacking points.
