I just recently re-installed my HIDs this week, and was riding around with my HIDs looking like the picture of yours from the inside driving. I fixed them though, with a little help of a friend. I was turning the bulb when it was on (inside of the housing) until i got the maximum light output. It all depends how the bulb sits in the housing before you put the retention clip on. Usually, if the retention clip is hard to clip in, the bulb is seating improperly.
