Did any F10's come without *LED* Angel Eyes?

Curious as I could have sworn I saw an F10 with Angel Eye Coronas that looked halogen-esque, i.e much more yellow-y than my cars hyper white Angel Eye Coronas.

I know in '12 or '13 apparently all F10's started to with Xenons as standard, is it that non-xenon F10's came with the halogen Angel Eyes, or was I just seeing things and ALL F10's since the beginning have had hyper-white LED Angel Eyes?

Thanks.

Ahh, that makes sense. Do they have it now (2013 models)?

All new 5 series U.S. models have xenon lights now. The 2011 528i (N52 engine) came with halogen lights as standard and the xenon lights was an upgrade.

+1, not sure what light source the angel eyes are for the halogen lamp model F10s, but they are definitely not as bright as the xenon models.
