Angel eye bulb locations

Hello all!
First time posting so pardon me if a commit some errors. I recently purchased my first BMW a couple months ago. It's a 2011 328i coupe and I'm trying to change the angle eyes bulbs. I did some research and I ordered the H8 led bulbs. When I search online on where the bulb is, every site tells me it's under the hood located under these two panels I have to pop open with a flathead. When I do that, all I see are the cornering light bulbs, no angel eyes. Can anyone please help me with this or point me in the right direction? Thank you

They're both under the same cover. H3 cornering bulb towards the front, H8 is towards the back.

Thank you for the reply. I've looked everywhere in that compartment and it's not there. I'll post pictures of it soon

Some 2011 already have the upgraded led angel eyes from the factory, which can't be replaced.

Post a picture for sure.

Here are some pics of that compartment and what I've circled is where I believe the angel eyes bulb is but it doesn't look like an H8 bulb.

your car already has white angel eyes, which are built in LED's from the factory, so they can't be changed. They are Not H8 bulbs.

Okay thank you! If I wanted to change the bulb if it goes out, can I do that myself? What bulbs are they? Or would I have to go to the dealer?

easiest to go to a dealer. It's an LED module that needs to be purchased direct from BMW or or BMW parts distributor.
