Front rotors half rusted, problem?

FIRST TIME Mini owner of 2009 Base Hardtop, I noticed both front brake rotors are showing rust on the outer half of the surface and the middle or center-most portion of the rotors are shiny as if that is the only part of the pads that are touching. The rear rotors are completely shiny. Is this normal?

Doesnt sound like it, no, all the pad brake pad rubbing surface should be shiny on both sides of the disc, I think you need to have a check of the calipers and pads?

DIY 2009 HardTop here also!

I have 58'000 on my 09 HardTop and it is time to think about brakes, no warning lights yet but I can see and feel it's just about brake time.

I would imagine your Mini is somewhat close to that in miles, so I'm assuming that the previous owner changed Pads and not Rotars. People don't like to hear that they can't turn the Rotars and smooth them but Mini replaces (the rotars are thin) people don't wanna spend money on new ones

So your pads MAY be good (if they are the correct ones?) But as posted by another member of our big family here, you need to check them.

When selling people go cheap!!!!!!
