I park my Subaru under the same trees as the BMW, no issues there. It is a pretty lousy design, both in terms of how easily it clogs compares to other cars and how you can't tell it is clogged and what it destroys when the water wicks down into the trunk.

I found this geat long air blower nozzle which will easily fit under the fixed rear glass to reach the rear drain holes to blow them out. I haven't tried it out yet but I think this will be less work than dropping the headliner. Only question is do you also want to put some solution (simple green or whatever) down the hoses to break up any debris lodged there before blowing it out with air.
