Exactly the same problem I have had.

Got slightly side lined following up information on a supposed blocked drainage channel from the sun roof to behind the front wheel arch.
These do no exist on this model - don't look for them.

I stripped out all the interior roof lining and tracked the problem to where the sun roof sits on the body of the car.
Mine has a black pasltic surround to the sun roof. I gaffer taped all round this to form a water tight seal between it and the roof of the car.
Since then I have had no problems.
It's not attractive.

When the weather improves and/or I get space in my garage I will fix the seal. The whole mechanism is bolted to the roof from the inside by about 10 bolts. I will release all these, remove the complete assembley and reseal.

Good luck.
