Also there seems to be a completely different housing between the two products; OE is square while replacements have rounded edges.
I'm sure nothing got broken while carefully maneuvering through the removal steps.
Is there an adopter that I just didn't get or did I get the wrong part/bulb?

See pics to for illustration:

Thanks in advance for the advice.
this is quite comical
the bulb you have on the right is your HEADLIGHT XENON BULB
the LUX are for your ANGEL EYE BULB
