Have a REAL GOOD look around the area and notice any higher dampness or drip-tracking to get a rough idea of where it is coming from.

Almost certain to be the door seals! I had the same problem and had to pull the door panels to see where the seal had separated from the door.

I had the same issue with my 2001 530I check the door seals like Rwelkins suggested but also have a look at the weather stripping that was my problem it was dried out and always let water in!
