MTEC / Generic Angel Eyes Install

I bought a set of AE bulbs (identical to MTEC style AE bulbs) to install into the LCI halogen headlights (just received from UK).

Looking around on the net most of such bulbs require the reuse of the plastic white oem part that is in the photo below.

However as you can see these particular bulbs don't fit the plastic bracket.

There are two options - 1. Cut/adjust the OEM plastic part OR 2. Mount the bulbs straight in (they look like a direct mount).

Anyone had any experience with these?

these look like pre lci headlights?

the new bulbs look like they have their own bracket so try putting them in/mounting them without the bracket.
