Hi Steve,

Check around the rubber seals of the door, make sure that there are no drips coming in from there, if there arent, then check the roof lining for any moisture. If theres none there either, it sounds like you could have a leak either underneath the car (missing grommets where the water is being thrown through?) or perhaps issues with a seal under the windscreen?

Check under the bonnet below window screen , see if there is any build up of dirt or leaves , also check wheel arches for mud build up behind the wings.

Also check each door drain is clear.

+1 on Paul's comments, the grommets are a good place to start, but you should definitely check around for more issues.

check under the carpet in the boot, could be water entering in that area and then running under the carpet/seats to floorpan.

had an smax with water entering behind the rear lamps, be amazed how much water can get in from such a small leak...but the panel under the screen, under the bonnet, is another common area, so check that panels drains are clear
