I havenít seen that particular leak, but I had an E60 that was leaking on the inside of the pillars and pooling under the seats. The issue was the drain plugs at each corner of the roof. They fill with debris will become clogged. The rear ones are up inside the wheel well, the fronts I believe are at the bottom of the pillar. Google it and youíll see where located. The sunroof is not sealed by design, water drains around it and down through the pillars. Def a good place to start.

Yea it was the drain tube from sunroof, the little rubber boot came off from the car. Reattached it and threw some rtv around it so it doesnít come off again, poured water down it and no more leaks
