Still, I will send the feedback to the factory on your behalf. Perhaps they can improve upon it. Thank you all for your constructive inputs.
They broke as per your install instructions. I never said they won't fit, but to make them fit, you risk bending the two internal prongs that need to make contact to the female ends of your bulbs.

I bought a second pair from Bimmian to see if the problem was consistent, and that set had the same problem. I trimmed the edges of the Bimmian unit, and they locked with the prongs a good deal better.

I don't doubt that all of your bulbs will work given enough finagling, but it's that finagling that will likely damage customers headlights without them knowing they're damaging anything.
