I finally had time to install my **************** HID's and thanks to the OP things went pretty smoothly. I'm including a few images that may help some with regards to the actual bulb installation since the OP really didn't show images with this procedure.

The first two images show the before and after shots of drilling the 7/8 hole in the headlight assembly.

The other two images show how to connect the bulb connector to the OEM connector.

Also the new retro-solution kits include the resistors as well as the capacitor which isn't shown in the wiring diagram that you get from ****************. though it is pretty straight forward to how it connects as most of it comes pre-connected already.

I also got mine from there and love them I went with the 55W 6000 K for the head lights, and 35w 6000K for the fogs
But for the projectors I opted for the high beam spliters and the mini gatling shrouds.
you did a great job Yo Nadz

With the projectors as you see in the pics I posted you need to run the cables through the sealed housing. the Quad headlights are different. I'm assuming you have the quad headlights not the projector headlights.
