Look in the trunk, on the right side probably in the fenderwell behind a removable wall (cover). That is where mine was on a 2000 740i.

Bimmer batteries have resided in the right footwell of the trunk for the last twenty some years. It has to do with the 50/50 weight distribution and the fact that heat kills batteries. Also, check your owner's manual.
