325i Sport Wagon Water Leak

I found ~2" of water in the rear passenger foot well after a recent rain storm. Headliners dry. No evidence of water leaking from sun roof. No evidence of water leaking in from the rear or front passenger window. No water in front passenger foot well. No, I did not leave the window open.

Because I parked next to a gutter outlet, I thought that it came through the bottom of the door. That could explain only the one side. I cleaned it up only to find it fill up again after the next rain storm.

I tarped it last night (rear window to front windshield) and still found some water in the well this AM. I am not sure if this was water that made its way down to the well after the tarp was put on. Ideas?
