I don't use the car a lot but this has survived a few motorway trips. It's a nice adornment for an old GTi but should I worry about the roots damaging the seal and letting water in? And will it flower?

Yes, it probably will damage

Yes, it probably will damage the seal, and yes it should flower in a few weeks.

Another possibility is Oxford ragwort Senecio squalidus, but it looks more like groundsel.
