    Just wondering... has anyone experienced using the extreme hid kit from xenon depot and it was way tight to give a twist to lock them in? I just installed mine and the bulds were a super tight fit in the housing for me. I was thinking about shaving the tabs down some but managed to squeeze the bulbs in with a slight turn to hold them. Is it supposed to be that Tight? Is the gramett too thick? Thanks for any input

    Yes i had the same issue, what i did was take the red rubber seal off the stock bulbs and swapped it with the blue rubber seal on the new bulbs, went right in. And use silicone on the rubber gromit that goes through the whole you used on the dust cap to prevent anything from getting in.
