Replacing Halogen with LED

Okay, so I got LEDs from M4 and tried putting them in the light fixtures. Unfortunately, they didn't quite fit as the leads into the "socket" were not long enough.

Here is what it looks like with the halogen:

So the guy at M4 said I can remove the reflector and just put the LED in without is since the LED is one sided, or I could cut back the space where the bulb and the reflector meet.

Anyone else ever had this issue?
Do those sound like reasonable modifications?

I would say that removing the reflector could work. He's right, the light only comes from one side of that LED, so the reflector is not strictly necessary (as a heat barrier either).

But I'm wondering why the pins aren't long enough? Mine were long enough for the Halogens I replaced. But I'm not enthused about the brightness or the color of the elements I settled on...
