I was sorry to hear from Nick that you broke yours during installation. Bummer
It's not a tight fit, it just doesn't fit. "Fit" means the retention mechanism works right out of the box, but that's not the case with your bulbs. If I have to shave down the prongs on $130 turn signal bulbs, you guys did something critically wrong with the design.

If you guys created a version two of the bulbs where they slid into the same position the stock bulbs do, then they'd be perfect. But as is, you have a product that no one should install for risk of damaging a very expensive headlight unit.
