and they used OEM polyurethane BMW / MINI adhesive:

83190444144 WINDOW ADHESIVE, COLD, 1 HR.

The “V” bead (triangle shape) is almost a fail-safe way of applying adhesive.

The fix !:
it appears that leak is not from the windshield it is from the seal of the door vapor barrier AKA Sound Insulating foam.

I went to one of BMW garages to do the job, they removed the door panel and removed the old seal.

No more water leaks during rain of car wash and nothing was wrong in the sealing of the windshield.
