Need to borrow e39 540i rear rotor for measurements

I'm trying to frankenstein a brake kit, and think the e39 540i rotor could be my missing link, I would just need to test fit it on a control arm... I could bring it to you, or let me borrow the rotor for a little bit and I'll bring it back unscathed... I may even be able to figure out what I need by being given measurements, if anyone has a set of calipers(measuring) and a rotor in hand...

send me a message if you're able to help!

I need a back spacing somewhere between 330i and 325i... Going strictly by photos, e-brake shoe cross-fitment, and rotor diameter/thickness... The 540i rear rotor is the closest I've found to the measurements I'm looking for.
Also, knowing BMW engineering, they really like recycling measurements to increase chances for using the same parts on multiple platforms.
