I BELIEVE MUD, SALT DEPOSITS AND EVEN FACTORY RUSTPROOFING CAN CLOG THESE OUTLETS.

I park my car on a drive also which results in the front of the car being slightly higher than the rear - as I reverse onto the parking area.

I ALSO BACK IN BUT END UP WITH FRONT LOWER THAN BACK. NEVER BEEN IN A GARAGE.

Interesting you mention leaves as there are none over or above the car but I have noticed leaves in the area at the top of the bonnet, below the windshield. I am wondering if this drainage channel is shared with the sunroof.

UNSURE IF THEY ARE SHARED BUT THEY EASILY CLOG. I OFTEN USE A VACUUM WITH A "SNOUT" TO EITHER CLEAR THEM OR BLOW THE LEAVES OUT. I TOO DO NOT HAVE ANY TREES ABOVE ME BUT THEY ALWAYS FIND ME.

I LOVE MY 640iX GT. CANADIAN CARS CAME FULLY EQUIPPED BUT COST A LOT. NO PROBLEMS OF ANY KIND SO FAR. JUST HAD A LONG TRIP AND FOUND IT TO BE INCREDIBLY COMFORTABLE. UNFORTUNATELY, SALES ARE LOW SO THEY HAVE BEEN DISCONTINUED IN CANADA AND U.S. NOT SURE ABOUT EUROPE. CAR IS VERY RARE IN TORONTO.
Good luck with your problem.
