The S6 has a cabin filter, the S4 does not.

In my car water drains from evaporator box, but condensation somehow ends up
moving in the direction of the driver side, crossing a flexible bellows.
Droplets get picked up and thrown out center air vents.  You can hear the
fan churning through water.  It's condensation from A/C, not antifreeze
leaking from a heater core.

I'll figure it out someday, I was only just wondering if there's another
drain I don't know about.
