Changing headlight bulbs in E93

Havent had the E93 for a week yet and ive already spent a few hundred on mods.

im going to change the crappy yellow headlight bulbs.

Do i need to take wheel off like on E90 to change the angel eyes and the low beam?

seen on youtube guy changes angel eyes through bonnet on e92 but takes wheel off for low beam?

thanks

AE's is definitely just from the flap at the back of the headlight from under the bonnet.

Not looked at low beam BUT changing the xenon bulb in most BM's its usually headlight out bobbie from the old school stuff I've changed before.

As above, angel eye bulbs you can do by just unclipping the flap on top of the light. Was still a bit of a ball ache because you just have to feel you way around in there.
Out of interest why do you want to change the main bulb? Standard ones look spot on I think?
