Which exterior lights are supposed to illuminate when the car is unlocked?

Hey guys, this is a slightly weird question so apologies in advance.

I managed to crash my F80 M3 SO / B, and just got it back from the repair shop.

They did a pretty decent of the paintwork and the new panels match up well. However I'm a little paranoid now about small problems, as there were a few dumb mistakes here and there. For example I now have one black side-gill and one chrome! And my driver side window now squeaks when raising / lowering, and for some reason they found it impossible to source the correct tyres so I'll get those replaced later.

Anyway one thing I noticed last night when unlocking the car with the key (at night) was that both led headlights flash on briefly as normal, but only the passenger-side amber indicator flashed. Not the driver side. I can't remember if that is expected behaviour or not! It seems odd to me, but the indicators work correctly otherwise.

So, if anyone has the time to unlock their car in the dark and let me know what front exterior lights flash, I'd be very grateful!

Just went and checked one we have on the lot. It's day time, but both indicators flashed on both front and rear.

Which exterior lights come on when the car is unlocked depends on which setting the headlight switch is set to.
