    Sup guys needed a little insight on this...few days ago I decided to take the RS for a spin..it started raining and I went back home(I hate driving in the rain). I parked on my driveway and not inside the garage because the car was already wet and I didnít feel like moping my garage. Next day I come back and find a small amount of water on my passenger side mat (all weather mat). I inspected and thought maybe I left the window cracked open...negative, the car was closed completely. So I began to run my hand through the bottom of the dash and noticed the side of the dash had moisture. My concern is where the f the leak is at? I know cars have ďgutterĒ systems incorporated to run water through,but just donít know where to begin looking...Leak wasnít major but itís bugging me now...any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys!

    Under the hood by the cabin filter is notorious for having water intrusion areas. Supposed to be drain holes that are easily clogged. Also where the filter is itself and the cowl (black part under wiper arms above windshield) can sometimes leak and allow water in.

    I'd say sunroof drains could be clogged as well, but seems less likely if the A-pillar is dry.

    @audibot thanks Iíll look under the hood and check all the seals are properly in place. I checked the sunroof and headliner for moisture but was dry.
