Way less weekend activity on this board so you would be lucky to get an answer in 3 hours.

Here is a thread with pics of the quick-disconnect connectors you are asking about. CTEK offers them. Most people are adding them in the trunk.

If you do a search you will find a few threads talking about the pros and cons of charging at the battery vs under the hood as recommended by BMW.

I would drill a small hole in the positive charging plate under the red positive terminal cover and use a small bolt to attach the quick connect wire. The negative can be attached anywhere you can find a decent chassis connection.
