wet feet

Just drove the 110 for the first time in a heavy rain and my feet got very wet. There was a steady drip from somewhere in the footwell above the pedals.

Any suggestions?

It could be coming from a bunch of places:
bulkhead to windshield seal
Vent seals
Heaterbox
etc

Bet suggestion is when it is dry to hit it with a hose in different spots while someone sits inside and looks around as it is getting hit with water.

Could be the gasket/seal area between the bulkhead and the windsheild, that where my 90 leaked. Pretty neat foot washing feature, I thought !!

Buy Series vent seals and replace the crappy defender ones ... rubber gaskets ... not expensive ... be careful with the glue when you fit them.

After that it will still leak ... but not as badly! ;-)

I had the same issue. Mine ended up being the vent seals. The old style seals (MUC4299) are much better than the new style (JAE00030 or something similar). It shouldn't be the heater box as that is on the side opposite the driver.

This fault can usually be traced to the badge on the grill.

Might also be a hole lurking in the bulkhead.
