Sunroof Leaks

Large amount of rain yesterday in NJ. Driving around today I noticed drops of water coming from the inside light/ sunroof switches. Anyone have a problem with leaks? 2014 X3 with 14K miles. Definitely having the dealer pick it up and look at it.

The drain channel is probably blocked. I'm on my 2nd X3 with pano, no problems in 3.5 years in a wet climate.

Our X3s have been good. Both get squeaks but no leaks

Your car is a little too new to have clogs in the sunroof drains. I would speculate it's something more problematic like a cracked drip tray under the sunroof. Check the headliner for water stains and have them replace that too if you've found any.

2015 M3 (NOT quattro, 6 sp, tanzanite, silverstone extended, cf roof/trim, executive, lighting, 19" silver wheels, adaptive M, hk sound)
2005.5 A4 Avant (quattro, 6sp, etc. etc.)
