    TBH mate you could have both as very early V6 came with 302's but then all came with the 314 set up. The easiest thing to do it just look at the caliper spring clip, the 314's have a big square bit that sits on the side of the caliper.

    Rough guide I was told while I was GSi 'hunting' prior to getting mine, was the 302 caliper is about the size of your fist .... the 314 caliper is about twice the size of your fist (ie both fists thumb to thumb).

    Not the most accurate description in the world, but worked out well as a quick guide.

    If your chassis number is 31070294 or higher, then you have 314mm disks. Lower than that and you'll have 302mm disks.
