Hello all, I am new to this forum and to BMW ownership in general. I recently became the proud new owner of a '95 525i sedan. Unfortunately, the rubber trim around the outside of the rear windshield is missing, leaving just the clips that held it in place and the edge of the glass exposed. Right now it looks like the cheapest way to replace the part is to spend a little over $300 on new clips and new left and right trim pieces. How important is this rubber trim? Is the windshield glass sealed already or is that trim the only thing that keeps water out? Also, is there a cheaper but equally effective alternative to replacing the factory part? Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!
