Unhappy Damp/Wet Floor Driver and Passenger Sides

As the title reads damp floor in patches on drivers side, passengers and rear passenger side (NOTE:Right hand side drive). It has been raining but no leaks from roof, seems to be water under carpet. The car is parked undercover and on flat ground. Please HELP!
Everything is better made in Germany

In my truck and my buddies jeep it was leaking down from the windshield. There was some holes/cracks in the weather stripping around the windshield.
Not sure if that's what is wrong with yours but may be worth checking out.

It's usually the drains toward the bottom of the A pillars being clogged, the drains in the sunroof being clogged, or a leak in the windshield molding.

Could be a faulty/leaking heater matrix. Keep a close eye on your coolant level until you identify the source of the h2o.
Keep the shiney side up!
