EU F30 Drivers - Do the front amber sidemarkers come on at night?

(sorry - posted this in the pictures section by mistake)

I really don't like the amber side marker lights that come on at night on the F30. I ordered chrome bulbs (one set that are hyper white light and another set that are chrome, but still shine amber).

Was going to change them to one of these bulb sets (to at least get rid of the egg yolk look during the day), but as I was programming, I realized that there is an option to disable the front amber markers for the US. Blinkers still work, but at least the markers won't come on. In Europe do those amber side markers come on? If not, does anyone have a night pic w/ the night lights on that they can post? Curious to see how it looks.

There no amber side markers on EU/ROW spec cars, only the indicator lamps within the headlamp clusters.

Sorry all - wasn't referring to the side reflectors. The actualy amber front signal lights actually both come on at night in North America... so I disabled them to be inline w/ how the lights work in the rest of the world.
