Officially both BMW TIS and Bentley advice against putting any lubrication on the guide pins. But I decided to coat the pins with brake paste (anti-seize) when my front right caliper seized due to dirty pins last year. No problem so far. I guess some kinds of paste degrade the rubber, the reason it's not advised.

And no adhesive on anything.
