Starter wiring?

1985 BMW 325e

Recently installed a new starter and for the life of me I can't remember the wiring. I have a thick red wire with a small red wire connected to it, a thicker black wire, and a thin black and yellow wire.

On my 85 325e they all go to the same post on the solenoid except the thin black and yellow wire. That one goes to the lower one of the two spade terminals on the solenoid, as installed. It is the one with a vertical orientation.
