Take a closer look at the angel eyes. You'll see there is a part on each one that goes down below the inside bezel to "pick up" the light from below. The bulb is below inside the housing.

Thanks Mark for the response.

I been looking like crazy. I was hoping to find access with out pulling out the headlamp. It seems that's the only way.

I've never actually seen the bulb, but my F10 is similar to my '08 335i and I had figured out how the light is transmitted when looking at the design of the angel eyes and seeing how part went down below the headlight area.
