Instead of posting incorrect information and confusing people, I suggest you have a look at the UK online configurator. Below is a screen shot. If you spec an M340i, it even has the red calipers configured by default. You can then switch to blue calipers as a no-cost option.
The grabs I posted were from the UK configurator, 330e.

So please don't tell me that what I posted isn't true, and that I'm getting confused.

That's for a 330e. The OP is ordering an M340i and the discussion is for the M340i. It's literally in the thread title.

Yep - so we've established that it's model dependent.

Great to know.

Thanks for being so friendly.

You started it by saying "like I said" and not listening to what people were saying. Seeing as the thread specifically mentions M340i, it would seem obvious what we were talking about. I even posted a screen shot of the UK configurator but you still wouldn't listen.

But anyway, I can see where the confusion lies if it varies by model.

Different tuning probably as a result of the 48v mild hybrid addition for 2021. No more pops and burbles lol

Everyone says it's software. Check the threads on the B58 forum.

I orded my M340i with Red Calipers ( Portimao blue, Cognac Interior and 719M wheels with shadowline) - I can't wait to see how it looks in person since so far I've only seen the rendering on the website.
