First, it's a bit obvious that these weren't measured. When modeling something so common you'll want to get them in the correct proportions. You should at least be able to screw in the bulbs. ;)

Regarding keyshot, the metal looks like you were attempting chrome. First, i would advise against that because the screw is never quite that shiny and also the reflective value is a bit off. It looks like you chose not to use a metal material? I say that because it looks like you have a high specular value as well as a higher color, and maybe diffusion value as well? Anyway, it's glowing...even in the reflection.

Try that material again, but maybe start with a metal material. Add some roughness to it for realism.

Those over bright values (any time part of an image is blown out) actually make your render quite a bit slower due to unnecessarily high antialiasing requirements.

I thought the standard bulb's glass and insides look great. Something is still a bit funky about the CFL though. It looks very stripey.
