Where to change H8 bulb for angel eyes?

I've got some 4300K H8 halogen bulbs to make the angel eyes less yellow. The manual is telling me the bulb is located in the same cover as the inner high beam bulb but buggered if I can see or feel anything except for the H7 bulb for the high beam. Tried to also have a look around in the low beam area but it is a lot harder to see in there.

Anyone out there done this change before and have some tips or definite idea of where this H8 bulb for angel eyes is located?

Thanks in advance!

There is no high beam light on the e70 X5 headlight cluster, at least not on the US models, the bulb is only for the DRL and angel eyes. It is an H8 here, but of course that may be different for other countries, especially those that have certain laws about light requirements, etc.

There's only one bulb which does both the inner headlamp and the angel eyes.

i'll also take a look at it this weekend....i was looking to do the same thing and was also wondering what i needed to replace and with what...

i haven't purchased anything yet cause i wanted to first see how much trouble it would be...

H8 sounds about right... and i do believe its one complete bulb...

please post some notes on how you did it if you can...
