Not the case,

The LED that lights the angel eyes is a single high-powered LED, which is the part 1lyfe is referring to,

the brow is lit by a strip of LED's

If you doubt me, go into your garage, unlock your car from the keyfob and watch - both the AE's and brow light up, then a while later the brow turns off, then a few seconds the AE's turn off - they're different light sources

Check my signature, that's a pic with the AE's on, but the brow off

Personally, I haven't noticed a significant color temperature difference between the two, but I can imagine a world where BMW bought LED's from different vendors and different builds might have different variance in color temperature
