Everything looks dry as well, but since everything seems clears, I'm still going to ask a stupid question.

When you had those pipes disconnected, did you try pouring some water down them to see if they were clear, or remove them to check for blockages? Theory would dictate that since there wasn't any water in them, then they are clear.

The only other thing I can think of is the carpets being wet, but then you'd probably have noticed this. I know the backs of the D2 mats have a thick rubber lining (great for holding onto loads of water), but only ever lifted the carpet in the passenger footwell of the D3 once, and don't remember if it had a rubber backing.

It was your comment about you could still hear water sloshing around making me wonder if the water has collected in the footwell(s), underneath everything else, and since it isn't being removed, it's why the windows are steaming up.
