    The 318 windshield will NOT fit, bonded or with the rubber. I was in the urgent need of a windshield a while ago and we had a 318i to try. It does not fit, completly different shape.

    Well a 318/325 windshield has a big rubber gasket with a chrome or black plastic strip in the middle. This creates a small hump. The M3 windshield has a much smaller, cleaner rubber strip that fills/covers the gap in between the glass and body. This makes the windshield more flushed with the body. But perhaps people mean they have aftermarket glass instead of OEM. I'm still not sure the 318/325 glass is different.

    By locking strip you mean what?

    Well, I think it is simple. If you have a locking strip and a thick gasket, then it is the wrong one. Bonded windshields have a small rubber strip mostly for cosmetics.
