Mein Auto: 2009 328i
Smile newbie Intro

what's up guys,

my wifey and I just got cpo 2009 328i sedan last sunday.

we were super excited to to drive it for the first time. the ride was solid, and the handling...omg

we were happy campers cruzing along until...that happened.

we arrived at the house and found like puddle of water at the rear floor on passenger side.

of course, my first instinct was ... we must have spilled bottle water for not capping it right?

so i took out the floor carpet and dried the floor w/ towel and didn't think much.

but the very next day, pool of water at the rear right again!!!

so i did some research, and it doesn't seem like we are alone on this problem.

i've read some of posts on diy and all, but having the new car and cpo warranty still in effect,

i figure taking it to dealer is the first step.

my question to you good people is what are things that i should make sure the mechanics look after? i'm afraid all that water is messing electronic stuff underneath the carpet.

any input would be greatly appreciated . thank you

Rear passenger is weird. If it's been raining, I would look for a plugged sunroof drain.

There is a hvac vent under each front seat; might be condensation from the evaporator that is not draining due to a plugged hvac drain.

Um, yes. Why are you even worrying about DIY with a car under warranty?

I would tell them to look at the puddle in the back seat.

Seriously, pics or it didn't happen And if it is happening, the pics will come in handy when you take it in and they can't find anything.
