Hello and welcome to the forum.

The only thing I can think that would leek water at the rear of the car would be the exhaust.There might be a drain hole or corrosion hole in part of the system and it might be dripping condensation out from it(condensation is perfectly normal in an exhaust system and nothing to worry about!).

The aircon system also drains condensation,but thats usually nearer the front of the car,and there is no rear washer bottle to leak,although the rear washer pipe could be leaking.....

Is the carpet in the car completely dry if you squeeze it?.The soundproofing underneath it can hold an amazing amount of water if the car has leak from a door seal etc,especially after all the rain we've had.The leak might be coming from one of the floor drains.

Are you absolutely sure it's water and not brake fluid?

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
