Inner Front Lights on a M50d ?

Could somone tell me, as the M50d does not have foglights in the front bumper due to the large vents (same as the X5M) and has Xenon high & low beam which are the outer lights (closest to the side indicators) and has led halo's, my question is this:

On RealOEM.com under the front light diagram section it shows the inner lights for this model with Xenon lights has a H8 35w bulb installed, now I know on the older version of the E70 X5 the halos were run by the H8 35w bulb but the LCI model now has led halos, which the M50d has also.

So have they now activated the inner light to run as a fog light? the RealOEM diagram shows the H8 bulb for this M50dx, and it cannot be for the halos as led light part is shown for that in the same diagram.

I also know there is no front foglight button on the dash beside the main light switch (only the rear fog light-follow me home button is there). I have tested (although the M50d is still in transport mode - computer etc not activated yet- not pre-delivered) the lights by turning on the lights and flicking on the highbeam but the inner light did not come on under either high or low beam. Also the inner light has a lense so you cannot see a bulb anyway.

Can anyone comfirm that the inner lights will work (as shown in the RealOEM diagram) on the M50dx and or has anyone got the inner lights to work?

Once they have finished pre-delivery I will check again but I think because I have Xenon lights the inner lights are not active, the same as on the X5M.

The panel shop is going to give me the next smashed LCI Xenon front lights so I can pull the control backing plate off the back of the inner light to check if there is a bulb in there or not and if you could put bulb in. It will also come down to re-coding (will check the BMW Coding forum) to activate the light also.
