LED Repeater fitting problems

Sorry first post is a problem, but not long had the car and signed up to the forum.

I've searched with not much luck, I bought these

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3215012340...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

But the back is too square so you cant get them through the hole on the wing, and the wing starts to bend if any force is applied, is there a trick to it or just cheap chinese junk and you get what you pay for?

It would be the 'just cheap chinese junk and you get what you pay for'

Since you're looking for smoked sidemarkers, the best fitting aftermarket to get are the Depot brand:

They will fit in the fender cutouts perfectly & they match the contour of the fender so there are no gaps

-OR-

You could just spray tint your OEM sidemarkers & install LED bulbs...
