I am on i3s # 2 and both frunks are not only waterproof, but as clean as the inside of the car! Perhaps your car needs to be looked at? New seals maybe?
The frunk is where the occasional use cable is usually stored too. The Frunk must be waterproof.
Wow! I've never read of any other i3 owner claiming that their frunk is waterproof. Maybe BMW redesigned the frunk to make it waterproof. Or maybe in drought-prone California, you haven't driven in the rain much.
Our 2014 i3 has a couple of rubber flaps between the frunk and its lid that block some of the rain, road grim, leaves, etc., but it doesn't block everything. I keep a couple of slip-on seat covers in the frunk that I can use after we've been hiking, swimming, etc., so that the front seats don't get wet or dirty. I have to keep them in a plastic bag to prevent them from getting wet when it rains.
An i3 owner has designed a waterproof lid to the frunk box and is considering manufacturing them due to so many i3 owners wanting a weatherproof frunk box.
The OUC can withstand some moisture, so it can be stored in the frunk without concern. Our frunk box has drain holes that allow water to drain out. Some have surmised that the frunk box isn't waterproof so that a wet OUC could dry.
