Default Door or Window Seal Replacement

When I pulled the old seals off; especially in the rear quarter Windows (coupe), it looks like there was some sort of low adhesion substance between the edge and the bite of the seal.

So now that I have new ones, do I need some sort of contact cement before installing?

Nope. If an item needs some type of adhesion, BMW will have it pre-applied.

I'm referring to these Coupe pieces specifically, not in general. Yes I know there is some old tape residue from the window felt/rubber gasket. It is not necessary to replicate this factory element.

It has some low tack adhesive, but I didn't put anything when I was replacing mine, it is mostly held in place by the inner seal and the window.
