installing Hella headlights

I just got my Hella headlights, and I was attempting to put them in, when I realized they don`t fit quite like stock. I tried to play around with it, but could not get it comfortably set. Any suggestions?

How were they not fitting right? not sitting correctly into the bowl, or is the hold down ring giving you problems?

I remember having to fight with the chrome ring to get things to line up right.

I was thinking the same thing, it seems that the rings can sometimes be a P.I.T.A. even with normal bulbs, very easy to have the bulbs cockeyed if you aren't careful during the whole process.

I for some reason can not for the life of me get them to sit right in the ring that holds them in. I guess it hasn`t been much of an issue for anybody else, so I`ll just keep tinkering with it
