The BMW owner manual usually gives you this information, but lacking that here is what mine says: Since my BMW's battery is located in the trunk it is not easily accessible.

Connect the other end directly to a bolt located on the actual engine. This is the Negative (-). It will be located close to the positive terminal. Connect the jumper cable to the other car making sure to connect positive to positive and negative to negative.
