Question about LCI lights

I just got my LCI lights from EAS today on my e93 M3



I was looking at them in the dark today with the lights off and noticed that the turn signal LED'S are orange when it is off. Is this how everyones is? I looked at some pics and none look orange. But then again mine dont either its only in person. I dont know if its just e93 thats like this or just mine...I always thought the WHOLE light was red.



The part I circled in this pic is completely orange on my lights

Don't know why bmw did it that way.. I had both US spec and Euro spec lights and when they are off they all look the same. So you are totally fine
