Angry Defective Windshields

If you have a 2013 Z4 you could have a defective windshield. When I leased my 2013 Z4 35i there was a 6 inch dried water mark inside the glass almost directly in the center of steering wheel.This water mark shows up real clear when facing the sun, other times it's nearly invisible. Before I took delivery the dealer replaced the windshield with a new BMW windshield from parts.
Now again I have the same problem, same size water mark inside the glass in the same location, directly in the drivers vision.
My dealer in Scottsdale, Arizona says the BMW Rep has to see this before they will replace the windshield. It's now been a month and they have yet to arrange a service appointment with me and the Rep.
Check your windshields for this issue it appears that a batch of BMW Z4 windshields could have this issue.

What are "watermarks" and what causes them? Do they get worse over time? I've never heard of windshield defects other than optical distortions and physical defects like pits, cracks, etc.

I don't know the cause. I refer to them as water marks because it looks like dried water or a liquid that ran down the glass and dried. They can't be removed because its inside the glass. It's very annoying when facing the sun because it's right in your line of vision.
