Yes, the fixed glass on our cars is bonded in. And, I can tell you that if you get aftermarket glass, i.e. "Carlite" even though it has the BMW Roundel on it, this is softer and very prone to pitting. You want to get the ORIGINAL German Sekurit or Siglia or whichever it is. Also, aftermarket glass has a different looking green tint.

What I don't know is how much the glue bond contributes to roof dimples and does too much chassis flex cause stress on the glass causing it to crack?

A couple of weeks ago when my father and I will still shopping for his M3, we looked at one that the owner had recently replaced the glass. He said the cost was around $600 from the local dealer. ... it was cracked already from a flying stone. Tough luck!!
