OEM signals and fit!!?

hey yall,

i just recieved my OEM fronts and sides for my 01 325 and what i want to ask is that the border of the housing doesn't seem to follow along the body very well and also i remember reading somewhere that i should hear a 'click' when it is in....but i have not heard one but when it is in....its in there very snug so....is it just the way the housings are on the e46's or is there something wrong with the body or what?? also i went from amber to clears....is there a way to clean the inside of the housing also...? and whenever my xenons are on....i guess the bulb i bought before it was just a clear bulb....so the whole thing on looks like a yellow white...what bulb should i go to for a whiter white if that makes any sense at all??? sorry if this doesn't make sense
thanks
