Eyebrow Lights on 2017 BMW X3

Hi I have a 2017 BMW X3 (M-Sport/35i) with Xenon headlights. I swear I saw the same model X3/year as mine that had the eyebrow lights blinking amber when it was turning.

1) Does my car even have eyebrow lights? I have never noticed them, but it looks like it should...

2) Is it possible to code/replace the LED for them if so?

Curious, thanks.

If you have Xenons you do not have the eyebrows. I think LED lights have them.

The Xenon headlights do not have the eyebrow turn signals.
Those are only available with the LED headlights.
The topic of retro-fitting LED headlights have been discussed before and it is extremely difficult and more of a hassle to have the full functionality of the LED lights.
Requires a camera and lots of coding....

You can tell if one has LED headlights as there is a section right in the middle of the hexagonal housing (for aiming low and high beam). The Xenons are just circular.

Makes sense. Thanks for the clarification!
