Which brakes come on the 330e with M Sport Plus Pack (Ireland)?

Just ordered a new G20 330e and I am guessing no one has one to verify the following since no customer orders have gone out yet?

Maybe someone with a G20 330i can confirm my fears

Below there's a photo I found of a 330i online with the M Sport Plus pack and it looks like the rear brake calipers are just standard basic calipers (just painted blue) and not upgraded ones like I have on my F30 330e right now, totally different design.

People that got their 330i already, can you confirm? Seriously hope BMW didn't decide to cheap out and save money on the brakes.

Remember G20 rear brakes now have the electric parking brake. Uses a different braking design with electric actuator. Same for the G30. On the 5-series, the rear calipers are the floating type by TRW.

I'm surprised to see floating calipers on the real M cars. When I was at the dealer a month ago all of the real M cars that were there had floating rear calipers. Most high performance cars I see don't use floating calipers on the rear. Is this something that BMW started doing recently and what is the reason? Cost?

Yeah the rear photo you have there Xsapper seems to be just like I saw on the 330i in the dealer. Just looks like a plain caliper to me but painted blue vs the totally different design on the F30.
Would hope it will be different on the 330e to assist with the brake regen/heavier weight of the car but really doubt they would have 2 different types.
Looks like a cheap way to save/make a few bucks, probably the reason the tech pack is 2500 on the 330e and 1500 on the 330i when it has the exact same options in it.
