is the weather stipping still in place, if not you can glue it back, or if it is in place you could probably use electrical tape and wrap it around the stripping then glue it back in place Thats about all I can think of, unless you go to a local you pull it yard and find an e36 there. Call around.

Why not just run a bead of silicone caulking around it until you can replace it. You may be able to find some in black.

It should peel right off. It's very rubbery.
