Hello

if the brake discs are rusty then you'll some grumbling / grinding noise but with repeated use this will settle down and the noise will abate


what can also help keep brake noise down is to ensure that the calipers are lubricated with copper grease and that the brake pads are fitted with anti- vibration shims
