A freind of mine at work had that problem in his 325. In his car, the rear glass weather stripping was failing and had gaps in quite a few areas. I'd check that out first.

I had the same problem.
The water was leaking in from the Hood storage compartment (Where the hood goes when it is down). In the storage compartment there should be holes that allow water out. One of the holes was blocked with some plastic that had fallen in when i had a new hood fitted. This meant that it was filling up with water and then leaking in to the back seats.
This has now been removed and no longer have the problem.

Unfortunately it had destroyed the rear seats before i found out i had the problem and had to have them replaced

Hope this helps
