LOADS of threads on this, do a search!
It's happened to me, the sunroof seal is CRAP and lets water into the metal brace around the glass causing it to rust and then the seal doesn't seal anymore! A new sunroof unit will set u back a pretty £300.. Try a scrappy.. I still haven't got mine fixed and it's been nearly a year, I've just taped it up so it doesn't leak

You will find the solution to your problem if you search on these boards.
Many have had this problem including myself. I even posted a small tutorial how I solved it.
All it takes is a bit of time and some bathroom sealant and it'll be sorted.

The rain usually gets in at the corners off the sunroof. Wait till it gets dark then shine a torch from the inside up through the corners of the sunroof through the front window and see if there is a gap.

If so then that is your problem. It happens cuz over time the sunroof shifts slightly and the water leaks in through the corners, but misses the drip trays and leaks into the car.
You can adjust the sunroof for a better fit at the corners, but it may not completely solve the problem. mine was solved by cleaning and resealing the seal and then putting some chemical metal in the corners. The sunroof is now water tight.
