X3 Clogged Sun Roof Drain

X3 is an OK car, but I've confirmed has major problems with a clogging drain in the sun roof, wihch IS NOT covered under warranty and cannot be seen or cleaned out by the owner and is not part of routine maintenance. The clogged drain apparently caused water to leak into the computer of my X3 and short it out, the replacement of which cost $2,000!! I'm hearing FROM BNW that this is a common probelm with the X3 and 5 series wagon, both of which have a similar sun roof. I asked the dealer to show me the clogged drain and they said they couldn't because it wasn't accesible. Their suggestion was to submit a claim to my insurance company! Obvious design flaw or oversight in routine servicing!!!!!!!!!!
