    Aside from the fact that you bought the riciest possible bulb at 10K, you put them into a halogen projector housing which likely blinds the hell out of oncoming drivers. If you want to be "cool" and have HID-style headlights, then cough up the money and do a proper retrofit or don't do it at all.

    I agree to do a proper retrofit. Your probably not blinding other drivers as bad as someone putting an HID in a reflector housing but still not the correct way to do it.

    If you still deiced to keep the kit you have you may want to get a rubber boot and fit it over the back
