But yeah, the binding size L/XL is too big for my shoes, even tho it says that it "should" fit.
So I got new bindings in M/L

Same thing happened to me!
I've been boarding for years and I'd thought I'd treat myself to a new pair of EST's Cartels to fit my new board 158 Easy living shape 251mm width. I have UK size 9.5 boots so I said to the website I need Medium bindings they said no you need Large. When I got them they seemed massive and to get my boots anywhere level overhanging I had to put them with the baseplate hanging over my toe edge of my board but still way too much overhang on heel edge.
I put them down to smallest size poss but still bottom of shin was rubbing agaist top strap and I had not toe drag but baseplate drag on my toe edge which drove me mad! I was also not centered on the board so buttering and general steadyness on the board was bad! not to mention real bad lack of response.
Try Medium bindings they fit a normal non wide board better. I changed my Bindings back to my old Cartels which are medium and sanity was restored! I asked the guy at my local shop where I did not get the bindings from and he said always try and go for Medium bindings with normal size boards. He knows some riders with size 11 boots who still choose medium bindings! It's wierd the Burton binding sizing is like Large for you and me but by your photo those bindings look way too big for your board and boots. Best thing to do is go to your local shop with your board and boots and try everything! Strap in and check how bindings feel and fit your board! Hope this helps?

Hmm, I got the bindings last last christmas so I cant exhange them : P
Looks like I might have to buy new ones then... Or drill out some new holes?

The Burton L-Bindings are surprisingly big. I use the center mounting holes with my size 14 reduced foot-print boots. The non-reflex versions had a lot more front-back adjustment range - that's working against you as well.
The binding is definitely big for your boots, if you can easily exchange it against a medium, you should probably do that.
It's normal that the highback doesn't fit the heel-loop perfectly, especially if you rotate it. But it should be close to touching at the forward lean adjustment screw - hard to tell from the picture (push it back as much as possible into the heel-loop).
