Water Leak - Trunk :confused:

Hey all. Thanks in advance for the help. I have a '97 M3 with a sunroof. I seem to be getting a lot of water in the trunk when it rains. I have done a little looking around and don't see anything obvious. Before I get to tearing the car apart, is there somewhere or something specific I should be looking for? It doesn't appear to be a bad trunk seal. I have also heard that the drains for the sun roof run through (or near) the trunk, so I don't know if that is leaking or not. Any help would be great!

Pacoused:

has nothing to do with your sunroof. I had the problem when I first bought the car... but it just kind of went away on its own. check the rubber that surrounds the trunk.

Not a good seal in the tail lights perhaps? Have you replaced them?
