Hello All,

We have just acquired an '09 528 for my wife and an '09 535Xi (wagon) for me. After reading about the sunroof drain issue (and having had similar issues on both of our previous E39s), I attempted to test the drains on both of our cars yesterday. Either they are both fine, or they both have problems in all four corners... Basically, I poured water in the outside tracks while having the cars on an incline (I did both directions). The water disappears quickly and seems to drain out in the door jambs in front of the front doors, and from an unknown place right behind the rear wheels. In both cases, the water seems to just "come out of the body" somewhere. Are these the correct locations for the water to drain, or do I need to look into this further?
