Another issue might be that the "heater matrix" within the center console be leaking water - thus the passenger foot well / carpet being wet. Though not common on the BMW - we have encountered this on a 1996 5 Series.....

The passenger footwell becomes soaking wet when the air contitioning is on.

Your evaporator is suppose to drain outside below near the firewall, there is usually a short hose, you may be able to see it under the vehicle near right side firewall, push a stick in the rubber tube, it may be plugged with debris.

We have a 2003 Saturn L200. It made it to work one day just fine, but then on the way home, the passenger's foot well was completely soaked by the time we got it in the driveway. Took it out again to see...

Your A/C drain tube is plugged up and the water condensation that normally drains out side the car is now draining out of your lower a/c vents. The passenger side on the out side where your A/C evaporator (close to the blower motor) there should be a drain tube for the water to come out.

In most cases after time, the tube will get plugged up dirt and grim. Find the tube and clean out the end to ensure there is no restrictions.

Thank you for using fixya and good luck

Wet rear floor

Have you by any chance jacked up the passenger side, or got vehicle on a hoist to make sure there isn't any plugs on the underside that may have fell out? They could be round or oval metal or rubber plugs, probably in that area.
