Headlight Assembly question

Hey everyone. This is a picture of my front left headlamp, minus the fog lamp. I'm wondering what the left bulb is. On the center lamp, it reads BMW Dynamic Xenon D1S, F 70mm, Q 70mm, and shines as a very bright white. This is obviously the bi-xenon.

What is the lamp on the left? I can't make out any text on it. Sometimes the center is lit, and sometimes the ring around it is lit instead. I can't seem to catch it consistently ever, and a few times I think I've seen reflections where the left lamp's center is lit along with the xenon too. It looks like halogen?

I keep my headlights on auto, but I can't figure out that inside-most lamp. I've looked around, but it seems as if everyone's head lamp assemblies are different. I'm sure somebody knows exactly what it is!

My guess is no one will be able to help you without some basic information such as year, model, etc.

Headlight Assembly question

There are two bulbs in that light - an H8 for the ring, and an H3 for the cornering light.
You wonder what cornering light might be? It lights up whenever the headlight switch is in auto and you a) indicate a turn, b) turn your steering wheel, or c) reverse (both cornering lights lit up).

DIY how to replace them etc
