Given you perform work at a reputable shop, I don't think you should have any worries.

Again, this is only my 0.02 cents
It wasn't my M3 that had the windshield problem but my very first car back in 1999 that had a cracked windshield. I was a student with minimum income and I chose to go cheap on non-OEM windshield. 2 months later I had a leak which cost $6k to fix on a car that was worth not more than $9k. Learned my lesson the hard way.
