      Hi all.

      This may be useful information:

      In addition to the sunroof drains and the trunk seal that others have
      mentioned, I believe there is a third potential culprit... the
      taillight seals. My experience has been that over the years, these
      seals (which cost no more than ten quid apiece) get thinner and dry
      out, leaving small openings that due to the aerodynamics of the E28,
      allow water to enter the trunk through these openings. They're quite
      easy to replace.

      Hope this helps,
      .steve.
