Update - Took car in to get new windscreen fitted this morning only to find that wrong screen ordered. My car has the optional extra green band at the top, the screen supplied is clear standard screen. Seems when parts guy checked stock the optional screen was on back order from Germany so he elected to get the in stock standard screen. They informed me that it could take a few days or a few weeks, I said I’ll wait for the back ordered screen as the car is still driveable.

Latest update.
Replacement screen arriving today at Coopers Teesside from Germany and car booked in next week for fitting.
So allow approximately 4 weeks delivery of OEM green tinted screen if on back order.

Job all done.

Definitely the correct seal with contours to align with the roof rails. The alignment window for the VIN number was OK. The new screen has a narrower green band than the original (correct part number on new estimate). Coopers Teesside did a good job, even gave the car a wash/clean inside and out.
Cost in total - £831, I've got £100 excess to pay.
I'll put up list of parts with P/Ns and cost in next day or so.

All sorted?
I’m having the same fun, auto glass are the slowest company in the world.

Yes, all done just waiting for refund from ManningUK.

It was apparent that the car had been fitted with a replacement OEM windscreen in the past with the wrong seal (roadster) having been used.
I've looked through all the bills and maintenance records compiled by previous owner(s) and nothing noted about it. Suspect it may have been done very early in is life when I suspect it was dealer demonstrator.

Still got to do the parts list, which I will do shortly.

Thanks.
My car has a roadster windscreen rubber and it’s very clear that between BMW and the likes of autoglass - they will continue to fit the wrong screens and rubbers forever unless you’re in the know
