rusty brakes

Hey i just bought a 99 m3 and one of the brake rotors has alot of rust on it. I can feel when I drive it that it is not biting very good. What is the best way to remove it. Other than that the car is the most fun you can have on four wheels.

Regular driving should remove the rust (within a couple of stops). If 1 of the rotors is not being cleaned, then there is an issue with that caliper ... probably seized on the pins so it is not moving freely, and thus not engaging the brake of that corner. You should examine that caliper, and perhaps even do a rebuild on it. Congrats on the car!
