On the M3 you have to hold the lever down or up (depending on which side you want to turn on) for over a second and angels and rear parking lights turn on.
My car is 100% Us Spec (Euro Delivery though)
My wife's Mini also does the same thing.
That's, I'll try holding it and seeing what happens! On the 335, you didn't have to hold it at all, just up or down and they instantly went on. I can almost bet that that time lapse is one of the wert_## profiles in action....
