Post Leaking and water pooling!

Hi all!
Another problem with my MB. haha! I have a 1992 180e w201. It has a load of water pooling behind and under my front seats. I know that the sunroof is not leaking because then my seats would be wet. So where could the water be getting in? The seals all seem relatively good around the doors (apart from some holes/tears) and the bonnet seal underneath the wipers is a bit worn. i pulled up some of the carpets and they are full of water (like sponges) and under the front carpet where alot of electronics and wires are there is also water pooling. so it must have been there for a while. Anyone know how i can drain this but also where water could possibly be getting in. I pulled out some large plugs underneath the carpet but no water drained out because the carpets are foam and have sucked up the water. It was after a MASSIVE rain, but this is Australia - compare it to Germany where this car is from - it rains and snows everyday in winter... so my car shouldnt be pooling with water unless something is broken?
hope you can help! im not worthy of the awesome replies Ive been getting so thanks very much for your time and effort!
