    Vehicle : BMW 525i

    Trim : SE Touring

    Engine : 3.0

    Year : 2007

    Early 3.2s had a 302mm front disc until they were then uprated to a 314mm disc. Apart from measuring the disc diameter,ther most obvious difference is the caliper size - roughly the size of a fist for 302mm and about twice the size on the 314mm.
