AAC P13W Problems??

Anybody try installing these and when you went to slide them into the factory harness, the copper connectors inside the bulb didn't line up? The connectors inside the OEM bulbs line up parallel with each other and on the AAC bulbs I have they are offset from center. I took pics but can't find my usb hook up for my camera at the moment. I hope the explanation is a good enough visual.

Yes, there were a couple of people in the original P13W thread that had issues with the contact pins not lining up. They were told to send them back for replacements.

They're STILL having this problem? Mine better not. Didn't pay $100 for two tiny lightbulbs to not be perfect.

mine was off a tiny bit but it went in fine, also youll have to file the stub that the clips holds onto to get it to fit tight.

+1 - I was in the original run and needed to file down the nubs to get a solid fit - been running them for over a month with no issues/no blown LEDs.

I tried prying them back to center, got them right in the middle and still a no go. Also, for those who have ordered these recently, I was on the pre-order shipment but have pushed putting these in to the back of my list. I'm gonna send 'em back today

i don't have the rs drls, but i have to send back my fogs for my regular 2ss. the little plastic clips broke off while driving. i looked at the reflection of the car in the tailgate of a truck infront of me and noticed it was "out" i pull into a parking lot, and its on, but just fell out of the housing. already got an email about 3 months ago to ship them back, just havent had a chance to get the warrenty thing done..but the LED's look amazing.
