If you are very carefull, you can remove the wear ridges on the brake disks with an angle grinder and a steady hand. Helps the pads bed in more quickly. Just take the disks off the car and take your time with the job, making sure you grind evenly and don't go down below the rest of the surface of the disk.

I've done this on a few different cars and worked a treat each time.

There was one instance though where I did balls it up and removed too much metal and made the surface uneven. Result was a vibrating brake pedal when the brakes were applied. Cured with new disks.
Currently in Mikey's garage:
