Location of negative terminal in F30

I know I'm going to get a lot of criticism and flack for such a silly question. I can find the positive terminal since it's clearly marked but where in God's name is the negative terminal? Lol

I'm trying to install the N20 stage 1 tuner to my 328i but I can't even get past the first step because I can't find it ! I've seen a couple other threads about it but they were incredibly unhelpful.


Thanks in advance for the help.

The battery is in the trunk (right side). Loosen the negative terminal (10mm?) and lift off the battery.

Were you looking under the hood?

I was looking ever where. This is my first time owning a bmw so most of it is new to much and I couldn't find much help online. It will be under the trunk padding then? I will have to remove some clips/ bolts to get to it? I'm at work now.

Just pull out the cubby hole and it will be underneath that.
