A slightly different question on brakes

What with the current multiple threads on the F30's brakes, I have another question on them that I don't think has been covered. Now, on the E90, the high output cars got larger brakes, so my 330d has bigger brakes than a 320d. Didn't notice the 2 different brake sizes on offer until I got my car in 2009 when it was next to a 320d.
So, with my high output F30, (328i) will I have bigger brakes than say, a 320d? I know the 28i is considered a high output engine because the M Sport when it arrives will not be available on anything less than a 28i. The 28i and the 35i are the only engines on offer in the M Sport, as not to dilute the brand so 316d's can't knock around dolled up to the nines in ///M badges and body-kits.

I do hope I get larger brakes, I'm paying enough!
Oh and I am very excited...
But also a little sad at the same time...

M sport will be available in all models, even 316i and 316d, just like on E90
Unless certain countries only allow certain models, which is unlikely

Really? I'm positive that here in the UK, only the 328i and 335i are allowed the M Sport guise. But it hasn't been released yet obviously and it could all change, especially with the addition of new engines like the 4 pot 30d

Indeed, as Sport Line is a "budget line."
