I once had a non-oem hatch window replaced (not on a BMW).
It was a piece of crap. It wasn't bent right near the edges and the
rubber/plastic trim wouldn't fit. In addition, it wasn't the same
color as the rest of the windows.
Tell your insurance carrier to use OEM. Or, if you don't have
insurance, spend the extra because you'll regret it.

I had my 318i windshield replaced by Professional Glass on Aurora Ave N. in
Seattle. I was completely satisfied with their work and materials. No
leaks; Tint same as my original. It was on my insurance but I think it was
about $330. They guarantee leak free and the fit.
