7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

It's either a clogged sunroof drain or a failing vapor barrier in the door.

Have you replaced any Windows recently? The water could be coming from there

I had a problem like that, it was my sun roof drain holes were clogged up. this is what I did, I took my shop vac, placed the crevis tool on the hose and held it over the sun roof water drainage holes. I could feel and hear all the debris that was clogging the drainage holes getting suck out. After that no more water coming into passenger side floor when ever it rained.
