My Ride: 2004 M3 Coupe, 6-spd
Something weird is going on...that is to say, that's not normal.

I've seen all kinds of weird things happen, including cross-threaded caliper pins, rust on carrier so pads don't slide, and sticky calipers. I'd do a teardown and see if the pins and pads are sliding okay, and then also see if the piston is hanging up badly. If the piston is hanging up, then just get some new ones from bimmerworld along with a rebuild kit.

Either way, you're going to need a new rotor.
