Headlight bulb replacement

All I know our RC's us a H7 bulb so when my left bulb burned out I decided to get the silverstone bulbs. Went to install them and the factory bulb has about a half inch spacer installed on it.
Is there an adapter we can buy or are we stuck with the factory bulbs. Also I noticed it was lose with out any spacer.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Guys (and Gals).

Pretty much stuck with the H7 unless you want to do some heavy modifications to the housings. (Or install HID)

Lightbulb

you have to use the adapter(black thing the plug plugs into #4 in pic)... pull it off the old bulb and stick it on the new one and thats it?
I converted over to HID and still had to use the adapter but slightly modified so the bulb would move around. hope this helps.

Yep it took some prying to get the spacer off. I had tried before and was afraid of breaking something LOL.
