    Hi all

    Bought a HID kit and bulb holders for my car a little while back now. Been very busy on other things so havn't really had the chance to fit them.

    Anyway, I came to fit them tonight, but I have absolutely no idea how the bulb holders are supposed to work How hard can it be???

    I have noticed however that there is a different type of holder available. Is mine wrong or can I use it?

    Here are pictures of the holders I have. First one from above and the second looking at the bottom of the holder.



    Regards

    Ray

    I've seen these ones also listed for the E46. Does anyone know if these are correct?

    Right, I am getting annoyed with my stupidity now. I have just received the new bulb holders and still have no idea how to fit them. Someone please help before I end up spitting my dummy out, lol.

    I have this HID kit :





    and have got these holders :



    How the hell are they held in? If not, how can I fit these HID's???
    Regards

    Ray
