Water Leaking - A/C hasn't been used in a month

I've tried searching online for ideas of what could be causing water to leak but all I can come up with are discussions on condensation from A/C. I haven't used my A/C in about a month or so (stopped working on me towards the end of the summer, just haven't caved in to having it repaired).

Any suggestions on where water could be coming from?

There's no color, no smell, but it's a fair amount for the past 2 days. I did top off my coolant on Monday when it was getting low, but it was equal parts of a BMW Coolant. So I would think if it was connected to that, it would have the antifreeze smell or color tint at least.

Yesterday morning when I backed out of my garage, it was a good sized puddle

(This is a 2006 X3, roughly 90k)

Have you checked if you're loosing water out of your windshield washer bottle? Mine was leaking out of the bottom where one of the black cylindrical sensors (?? I think it's a sensor..) was slightly unseated. I just pushed it back in and it stopped the leak!

The drains on the panorama roof have been known to clog up with debris (especially this time of year, then the leaves start falling) and that causes rainwater to leak into the interior. A quick inspection of the drainage tracks and drain holes in your panorama roof might give you the answer whether that's the culprit.
