Transmission query: 120i LCI2

Hello,
first of all I'll present myself. I'm from Uruguay and i'm about to buy a 2nd hand 2018 120i Msport LCI2 with 45k kms . It will be a dream come true after much effort considering cars here are crazy expensive.

The doubt I have regarding the transmission is the following. Does the 120i LCI2 also have the ZF8HP or is it the Aisin AWF8F35?

To me it seems pretty obvious it is the ZF 8HP but there's a blog here stating the it's the Aisin one. I looked in plenty places to confirm this but could not find proof.

I doubt it is the Aisin one given it seems to be for transversally mounted engines, not longitudinally like the F20 and for FWD, not RWD.

I'll share some pics of the car later.

Many thanks in advance,
Lorenzo

Thanks!!
I see all of those say Eh GA8HP50Z. I looked for the manufacturer but could not find it.
Is it other than ZF or Aisin?

Tks again

Well, my search suggests it's a ZF, finding https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZF_8HP_transmission in particular. But no, I can't find the whole product code associated with ZF "literally" to give you a proof. Ask an official service, perhaps.

I am inclined to believe (and hope!) it is the mighty ZF!
Thanks for your help and will definitely ask the official service here although I doubt they know much.
