How do i change these xenon bulbs?

a year or so ago i bought some P46 projectors from jleivisw (never agian) and the angle eyes all crapped out on them so i bought some new angel eyes from umnitza. They came with free matching xenon bulbs so today i was gonna change them over and though might as well do the bulbs as well untill i came across this

it dosent look like i can just swap over the bulbs but buy an entire new connector? it uses these kind of connectors
By e46330i at 2011-03-14 So what can i do to change these over?

First photo shows an H7 bulb and a new D2S bulb. That's the main issue.

you can't use the bulb on the left unless your headlights support D2S.

If you want to use those bulbs you can either buy new ballasts or buy amp to d2s adaptors.
