Angel Eyes won't fit.. Help

Hi Guys,
Got my angel eyes over the weekend and tried to install them but no luck, there is an additional wire and can't figure out where it goes. Maybe it is just not the angel eyes for my car.
I've a 2008 (Pre-LCI) e92 and have only the main connector on the OEM, not the small one as you can see on the picture below.
Are those angel eyes for LCI?
Thanks for your help

LCI angels are the same thing. The website says it will fit a 2007+ E92 as well.

Is the website I bought them from.

I just installed my LuxH8 tonight. The first 5 mins I was thinking there's no way the new bulb will fit. Even with small hands, I was barely about to align the bulb into the headlight housing.

The key: tiny hands! Good-luck with your install.

the extra connector is for an add on additional resistor.
some years require it, some dont.
you prob do not need it.

try flipping around the part that connects to the OEM bulb plug.
the extra wire for the resistor missing wouldnt NOT make it light up.....if your car needed it you would just get a bulb out warning on the dash, but it would still light up

I think I cant flip around the main connector because it wont fit in the car connector, there is a little peace of plastic that prevents you from plugging it the other way.. Did you guys just plug in the bulb with the main connector and left the little one unplugged and it worked?
