I was going through BMW NA website look at the technical spec on the current 5 series. I notice the 528i, 540i and 540iA all have slightly different brake setup.

Front Rotor Rear Rotor
528i 11.7,aluminum calipers 11.7,aluminum calipers
540i 12.8,cast-iron calipers 11.8 ,cast-iron calipers
540iA 12.8,cast-iron calipers 11.7,aluminum calipers

I thought all 5 series have the alumimum calipers. Is the different brake setup in the 540iA and 540i a misprint?
