I know what the manual says. If you want a big mess, follow the manual.

I have installed many windshields without any sealant and never had a leak. You should have no problem at all with a new OEM seal without sealant.

If you do feel that you need to use sealant, here is what the pro's use.

No goop. Make sure you use a genuine BMW seal that has the extra flap to cover the top edge of the dashboard. The "chrome" lockstrip insert will spread the gasket apart when installed.
