As far as I know there will be 16 pin looks like a serial port under the steering and a 20 pin port under the hood/bonnet which is under a black screw on cap approx 75mm dia.

Really, 7 series has 2 one under the steering for DME/ECU and one under the hood/bonnet for everything else including DME/ECU and Live diagnostics, so we have OBDI & II, I also believe some 5 series have both as well probably 1998-2002
