not sure about your coverage, but if the water spray is directed right the seals, she will leak.

i took it to the dealer when it was still under warranty, they said its normal. just avoid spraying high pressure water directly on the seals

if it leaks when it rains, then you might need to replace seals, not sure how much $..

if it only leaks when you wash it, avoid spraying the seals..

............its ok, top down weather coming soon

Definitely shouldn't leak in the rain ... I drive mine all year round. I wash my car through the touch less washes and there was only 2 times I noticed small drops in the driver side corner ... ever since then I've opened and close the top multiple times and no leaks ... might have been how it closed with the seal that one time
