: In removing the old window, it is impossible to not scratch/scrape the interior window seal. So I asked him if I could use my bottle of touch up paint to cover any bare metal. It took me less than 5 minutes and I sealed them up before he caulked the sill and put in the new window. It was not BMW glass, but it was an OEM glass supplier.
: In my opinion the glass was better than the original, even had the factory little black dots around the perimeter to prevent clouding. I wish Mercedes did this, I have replaced many windshields in my 190SL for this problem.
YES! I forgot to explain in my post how important it is to touch up (even spray primer) over any places scraped to bare metal!
