i know some of the bulbs are just a really tight fit put some lube on the seal and try to push them in with a little force....or they could be the wrong bulb....mine were very tight

HID bulbs don't look like the counterparts they replace... only the BASE where it screws in or holds in is supposed to be the same. Looks the same from those pics.

the base is a given.... of course its a completely different 'bulb'. how do bulbs mount? via the base!

My 9145 HID bulbs are right angles just like the factory 9145's...the around base in the OP's pics look odd to me. And I dont think I see any 'teeth' on the OP's HID bulbs... But he got it to work...soooo.....over. lol.
