new to bi-xenon

I am looking at a 2002 325 with bi-xenon. When I turned on the brights, the outside two lights were still the only ones on. Is that correct? There are two inside lights - maybe that is just a carryover from cars that don't have bixenon. I just want to verify everything was working since I was there during daylight and couldn't tell how bright they were. Thanks.

inside lights on Bi-xenon cars 'should' function as either day time running lights and "flash to pass"

this is wrong. Bi-xenons have a shutter on the projector that opens. If you watch when someone turns on the high beams, you'll notice the shutter open, and it will get a whole lot brighter...

The old halogen light is just used for flash to pass now... and DRL's in Canada...
