Need Help: Xenon Retrofit

I have searched and found no help. My question is the housings that I have bought, the driver side will not fit (Due to me having an M3). I have gotten the relocation bracket and the wire is not long enough from the housing to the recloation place.

2 Options

1. Find out which aftermarket intake will allow this ballast to say conntected with the housing.

2. Find out what part I need to get the extended wires to the relocation point. Do I need a new ballast? If so what part number is that? Is there a special wiring? I have looked at realoem.com and it doesn't show extended wires from the ballast to the housing.

Thanks for the help

Is there any way to free the wires. On my BiXenons there is plenty of slack to put the ballast wherever I want too.
