There are quite a few electronic modules and all of the hydraulic systems for the roof under the trunk floor. If there is water in the trunk that could be an expensive mess.

Not entirely true. E9Xs LCIs built before 03/09 still have all of that. My '09 E93 (01/09 build) is an LCI and it has all of them (well, except the moonroof crank since, you know).
