Yeah, they look a little buggered up. It almost looks like they aren't seated deep enough. One thing you can do to check alignment, is to keep the back cap off and move the lamp around (without the clip on) while your headlights are on. You'll should be able to find the sweet spot. When I put mine in, my right headlight was hosed like yours. I did some grinding on my headlight, and found that wasn't the way to go. I ended up shimming the one side of the bulb, and now it lines up perfectly. Good Luck!

I thought those had an "E" pattern like the Morrettes. Did the HID bulbs have a metal shield? If they did, they can cause some issues with projectors.

the housing of the projectors have a metal plate.. in the middle is a rectangular hole for the bulb to go through.. to the left and right are two small holes that is use to secure the holes.

I'm not 100% sure about the lights you have. PM jimhoyd because he has those and may be able to help you out.
