2002 BMW 530 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 60000 miles

Hello. I just bought the vehicle 3 days ago and was vacuuming it. The carpet behind the drivers seat was all wet. I can't figure out where the water came from. We did get a hard rain/thunderstorm. The car was just parked in the driveway. Any ideas? Thanks.

This is a symptom of a faulty vapor barrier in the door closest to the wet carpeting. Was one of the window regulators replaced? Check history and let us know

Have you checked the black rubber lining in the doors? Sometimes they fall off and arent in properly. If they are missing, you can get them for cheap at a local auto parts lot.
