I too have a deteriorating front windshield seal. The rear strip is fine. I called BramanBMW in West Palm and they want $350 to replace just the strip. The dealer said it's not covered since CPO doesn't cover rubber seals. Safelite will replace the entire windshield and strip for $400. I am too kind of wondering why only after 4 years the rubber started to crack, now it's at year 6 and it looks pretty sad. I have seen other E39s in Florida with cracked weatherstripping. I had a 10 year old Civic and none of the rubber seals ever dry rotted or cracked. I'm almost tempted to take a piece of rubber and send it out to a lab and have it examined. C'mon BMW what's the deal?
