It wonít even get to the O ring. Itís the metal housing with the 3 prongs that wonít even fit. I did an exchange through amazon so Iím waiting on the next set. Lights are super bright though so we will see if the next ones work

I bought them too (the Cougar ones) and I got them to seat in there, but they were not bright at all.I sent them back. I, however, kept the Highbeam ones they are super bright.

Did you make sure the LEDs were facing sideways, 9 & 3 o'clock position. The beam pattern can be allover the place if not.
I know it took me good 5 minutes for each bulb to find a sweet spot. The brights were easy since you can see them. The bulbs in lows I couldn't see because of projector lens. What I did instead is, I followed the wiring coming from the bulb that happen to be in-line to make sure it's pointing perfectly down once the bulb is locked.

That would frustrate the hell out of me, if you're still considering alternatives the SL1 bulbs I purchased over a year ago now from Diode Dynamics (actually did a pre-order from their launch) perform awesome and while sure - they don't illuminate any farther or wider than the stock halogen I wasn't expecting that. Just wanted them to fit like a glove, no dust cap mods, and be just as sharp on the cut off line so no other adjustment required for on coming drivers. They check all the boxes there, good warranty coverage is a plus too I guess.

I am only recommending the Katana LEDs for low beam.
Xenon Depot makes a DRL driver for their 9005 High Beam LEDís that makes the DRL fully functional with no flicker.

I had H11 and 9005 bulbs side by side and the only difference other then price is the finish color. Supernova V.4 H11 is bright silver, where 9005 is also silver but has much darker finish. Both 9005 & H11 from Nineo are black.
Also, Supernova V.4 (Hi-beams) came with wrong locking ring with much narrower tabs where Nineo 9005 came with proper one matching OEM tabs (9005/HB3).
Have you tried these for your fogs?

No I didn't, got my Morimoto fogs before. But they should work. If you're buying from Amazon you can always return it ;)

If yall want some good quality leds/hids with awesome customer service and warranty, order these. They are also fine with the DRL's. I run their HIDS and Leds all of my vehicles since 2007. End of story. If anything is defective or goes out, they replace it with no questions asked. Super fast shipping and there are always coupon codes.

Nope. All good. Just make sure to adjust locking ring so LEDs are facing 3 and 9 o'clock.
Hint: the wire coming off the bulb need to be at 6 o'clock in locked position, I think.

I am experiencing the exact same issue with my set of Katanas. The passenger side went on in 5 mins, no issue. The drivers side, I can't turn it to lock. it just sits there. Even with no o-ring.
Even put into the housing (held with tape), with the LED facing 3 and 9, the pattern looks like crap. Too bad. The passengers side is awesome.
Also expecting a replacement set but its too damn cold and snowy to drop in right now.

Did you get your replacement? did it resolve your problem?

I might go back to my XD HIDs and go back to getting flashed every other car!

Yeah you have to get a replacement set sent to you. They’re manufacturing process doesn’t have the highest quality control that’s for sure. I ordered through amazon and had to wait. I put the one that didn’t fit in the socket as best I could until I got the replacement bulb.

Replacement set worked perfectly fine. Weird because my passenger side fit wrong but the drivers side was perfect.

I used these from Headlight Revolution and I am very happy with how bright they are and a perfect beam pattern right out of the box. Although they do have an adjustment screw to adjust the angle I didn't change anything, 5 minute install and they were perfect.

They lost my trust and the moment they said the ring their Supernova v.4 9005 come is what is suppose to, which is total BS since Nineo has a proper locking ring matching 4Runner headlights 9005/HB3. They shut the hell up and returned my money once I sent them a photo comparison. Not only that, because of it the bulb did wiggle in fully locked position.
Nineo bulbs are exactly the same for the fraction of the price Headlight Revolution is trying to sell their top of the line crap.
I'm not saying Nineo is superior to other brands but to Supernova V.4 definitely is.
I just saved few hundred dollars by switching to Nineo 😋😂
