let me first say that i am an autoglass technician by trade. with that said, that is very odd that u got the car with the rain sensor looking like that, because pretty much all aftermarket windshields come with the plastic sensor piece already on the glass. whether its OEM bmw, high quality aftermarket, or chinese aftermarket, they all come with the purple piece already mounted. i have seen i think one time where it didnt come on the glass, and i refused to use that one because i didnt have a new sensor pad, and if u try to take the old one off and reuse it, its not going to work (as u already know lol). it was just a hack job done, they should have either waited and got the right windshield, OR a new sensor pad. its cool that u were able to figure out a way to fix it on your own though
