Unhappy Water leaking in the trunk? or My trunk smells like moldy snatch? Part Deux

This is a continuation to the following thread:
http://www.maxbimmer.com/forums/show...threadid=30027

OK, so now we find more vulnerable water leak points in the E30. Again Qimis finds himself in a pool of water in his E30. What is wrong now? We already patched the holes in the trunk and now we find the front carpets to always be wet. WTF!

I figure that if the stones that are flung from the spinning rear tires are enough to wear away at the back of the trunk, then the front tires would also wear away at the front.

Qimis spent many hours pulling his car apart this past weekend (instead of going to Wassaga cruise) and found……. Well….. let the pictures do the talking:

Make sure that your sunroof drains aren't clogged.

Good point Nick but this issue is definately a problem caused by stones kicking up from the wheels which is common to E30s.

Poor Qimis, hic car is starting to look like mine.

Thats a good theory 15 year's of sand blasting must be the cause....

You should it's the winter driving that does alot of the damage........ My gas pedal fell right out of the floor cause so much water and salt soaks in from the top I could almost guarantee that theres a hole starting under your gas pedal.....


And if the rest of you think you have the biggest HOLE I have you all beat...
