Question for those who have HID bulbs from bimmian.

Are the pins supposed to line up the same? My stock bulbs have 2 pins on the left and one on the right. The ones from bimmian have them spaced out evenly. Any help would be appreciated.

I just noticed the pins are different on the 2 bulbs I received. I hope this is to keep the left and right bulb separate. Can anyone confirm this before I pop the passenger side light cover?

Well I opened the other cover and turns out bimmian sent me one wrong bulb. So now I have to open the other cover to return it to the stock bulbs and then put both covers back on. Such a pain.

I ended up driving over to jlevisw.com's HQ (down the street) and grabbing another set. Hopefully bimmian.com won't give me trouble returning the set they sent me. They seem to provide great service and just made an honest mistake. I just don't want to wait another week to get the replacement.
