Move to Arizona and be done with it

EPC research indicate three different possible part numbers: 124 780 00 98
is "sunroof seal" for ~$117.  124 782 04 98 is "sunroof weatherstrip front"
for ~$9 and 124 682 00 97 is "sunroof weatherstrip rear" for ~$13.

I'm tempted to order all three.  The seal installed in my car is in two
parts, a front and a rear.

Yesterday after the water test, as I drove the car more and more water
appeared on the floor, so it was continuing to flow out from some body
cavity.  I am going to perform a new test and include a drive around after
wetting each area (windshield drains, doors, and then roof).

Parking the car pointed uphill will eliminate or greatly reduce the water
incursion. Water only appears on the passenger side floor.

Today I checked the sunroof drains (two in front corners), they are both
clear. I ran weed-wacker cord down each, followed by gently pouring water
down each.

Using the garden hose, car parked facing downhill, I ran water down the
windshield drains: nothing. Water on both right side doors from top edge
seal down: nothing.

Sprayed water on the roof, finally got water in the car.

My theory is the seal around the sunroof is letting too much water past
and the drains can't keep up. I'm going to replace that seal next.
