got mine, but for some reason my fog lights wont install into the housing.
when i matched up the tabs of the new fogs with that of the old, the smaller of the 3 tabs is offset from center the opposite way. I can NOT lock these in. I've been trying for 30 minutes. Is there some trick to this? I've done it before and it shouldnt be this hard. My next step is going to be removing the entire fog light assembly if no one helps me out.

WTF???

hopefully these pictures help explain my problem better.
Notice the orientation of the small tab in relation to the 2 larger tabs.

Tell me someone sees it besides me. Has anyone else noticed this or am I the only one?

I know exactly what the problem is, but have no way to fix it. If these bulbs are indeed H10, then the problem is in the manufacturing of the bases with the tabs. They DO NOT FIT. I have a 2010 TRD Sport and these DO NOT FIT. I've been trying now for over 2 hours on a single light!!!!

Someone help me please!
Slim, please call me. I've PM'ed you.

hey slim, we customers need some service here.
the 2 problems are:

1) tab location is all wrong.
2) circular base of bulb where o-ring sits is 3/32" too large in diameter.

Does that about sum it up for you too opie?

I'm beginning to think I got the wrong bulbs. The box says H10, the clear plastic bulb protector says H10, but nothing on the actual bulb says H10. could be wrong bulb in a H10 kit box?

I need to exchange/return this kit ASAP Slim.

Hmmm, my H10 kit looks different... I don't see a piece that looks like that one in your first picture. And it is hard to tell but I think the actual bulb piece with the 3 prongs looks smaller.

My hid headlights work great, however, my fogs won't turn on. I have them locked in just fine, tried switching bulbs and even tried switching ballasts...any suggestions?

Edit: never mind, turned the male/female connectors to the stock harness around and they work perfectly! As for you guys with the locking issue, chill. Slim has a lot goin on, just give him at least a day to respond. You don't have to have your hids in this instant.

Guys, it's the weekend and he's got a family who's moving homes, cut him a bit of slack. I'm sure he'll respond the first chance he gets.

Wow, you really think he only does these GBs as his only source of income? He's doing this to help you guys out. No one pointed a gun to your head and made you buy anything from him. I personally don't know Paul, but from what I've read from his previous GBs, he's a stand up guy, I'm sure that others will chime in and have his back as I do. Just relax, waiting another day or two isn't going to kill you... will it?
