Default need some help with hid fitment in gf's kia

Hey guys so awhile ago I ordered my girlfriend hids for her 2012 Kia Sorento

Stock headlights have a projection lens and when I went to fid the hid bulbs In the headlight housing the tip of the bulb was hitting the lens, therfore the bulbs would not fit..I checked and the bulbs I got are the right bulbs and they are the same bulb (9007 or 05 now I don't remember but Both My Yukon and her car have the save low beam bulb and I ordered 2 sets)

Both sets fit in my housing so my question is can you find a shorter hid bulb or what might work ...

BTW I wasn't sure where to post this due to it not being blazer related so if it needs to be moved let me know

Hope someone might be able to help me out and if so THANK YOU!

Those projectors arent supposedto have HID lights in them. The angles are all wrong and the light output is going to suck.

Look into LED headlights instead

Definitely would not get LED headlights, they are complete trash, the technology is not there for it yet unless you get it from the factory.

So thinking just getting some better halogens to upgrade is going to be the way to go...I found a set of headlights for it that come with hids and halos but they also come with a 350 dollar price tag lol
