New top - water in trunk

I just had a new top installed on my 1997 Z3 and now have water in the trunk. My installer says I need a new weatherstripping or gasket. Any ideas? Suggestions on where to buy?

Thats easy...
You have "Drain-tubes" @ the base of the hood near the trunk... Trace and clean them out.
As for the glass meeting the hood, check for noise @ 30mph (or less), if noise then rain WILL ingress...
HTH

The drain-tubes maybe @ the top of the trunk near the base of the hood!
