Nope, 94's are OBDI. The contacts are on the left side of the engine (as you face the car) in a round black fitting wit a jar type lid.

Yes, the round 20 pin connector is the diagnostic connector, pin 7 is the service interval, pin 19 is ground. Further information on OBD1 diagnostics is available here Pelican Technical Article: Reading BMW Fuel Injection Fault Codes . If you want more let me know.
