Retrofit ZKW to Evox-r conversion issues.

I just purchased an '04 330i ZHP. My luck it came with ZKW hid's. Since I couldn't see anything with them I bought the Evox-r projector replacement. I must say that I am very disappointed with the lack of any install instructions, and the figment issues that were not addressed. I am not afraid of modifying and tweaking to make something work, but they should have informed me. Cutting the housing to fit the projector wasn't a problem, but the bulb socket doesn't fit, and there are connectors with the kit that led me to assume some incorrect connections. I understand that a small company may not be able to send hard copies with every order, but a PDF on their website would be helpful. I have chased these issues for two days on the internet forums to no avail. The wiring issue I believe I have finally figured out, but the bulb connector is still an issue. I'll have to "rig" some half assed way to secure it. Sorry for $165.00 I'm not impressed. Just my .02.

Can you explain more why the bulb sockets don't fit? Were the projectors too long? As far as the bi-xenon wiring, I'm not sure if the OEM sockets fit.

This guy seems to by happy about it:
