    S3 rusted brake and rear window question

    Hi, My S3 has been in storage for a while now but before it did go it had new dimpled disks all round and new pads. Now there is alot of rust on all the disks. My question is, if i were to give all these disks a quick refurb with some suitable sand paper or a sanding mouse could I get them back to usable state or would the rust be too dangerous for the disks' construction, i.e. making them brittle?

    Also on another note, where is the cheapest place to get a replacement rear window fitted? I had a quote from autoglass for 350 but Im not satisfied...

    Cheers guys!

    I would go out and drive the car and do very careful braking to clean them up

    brakes can go slightly rusty looking overnight so just take her out for a steady drive and they should clean up a treat.

    I need to point out that the rust doesnt look like its normal durface rust, the car has been sitting there for a year now, so im guessing that its set in, but im now scientist
