HID Installation

So I just got my HID kit and i'm not sure what to do because the HID bulb doesn't lock into place with the metal wire/clip like the H1 bulb does when it's in the white piece with the little wing things. Anyone have a good solution for this? Here's what i'm dealing with.

All H1 HID kits are like that.

You have to make yourself a ring to go around the black base of that bulb that the wire clip can press on to hold the bulb. I've actually used that white washer thing that comes with the bulb (in your picture) as a template and then cut an aluminum washer to match it and used it between the bulb base and the wire clip to secure it.

I hope those are not any higher than 8000K if you don't want to get pulled over you will also need to aim them pretty low, prepare to get highbeamed by half the oncoming traffic. Here's what H1 8000K HID looks like out of stock 5th gen headlights:

notice how high the light scatters up the garage door...that equalls blinding for oncoming traffic.
