E46-R: The E46-R bezels were the first retrofit-specific component we released in early 2008, since then we’ve served up thousands of sets to happy customer around the world! Very clean looking, OEM style shroud that’s hard to match for modern, yet clean and classic looks. Despite being one of our first shrouds, the only other design to match it’s popularity is the E46-R extended (which is 10mm taller)
In Comparison: Don’t make the mistake of thinking all shrouds are created equal. Even though less expensive alternatives may be available elsewhere: our shrouds are made from the highest quality plastic and have by far the most durable metalized chrome finishes: Forever-Finish. The cheap-o’s out there are flimsy enough to deform from the heat just a 35W HID bulb, and their chrome finish easily flakes off.
Mounting: Centric Rings are not included by default, but are highly recommended to improve ease of installation on many projectors. The Centric Rings are simple reducers that clip into the of the shroud to reduce inside diameter, making them more of a “press fit” onto the lens holder of the projector. 2-part epoxy is also recommended in order to prevent the shrouds from vibrating loose over time. Centric rings are NOT needed for 3 Inch projectors, when selecting which projector you will be using them for the correct centric ring is added if needed.
Trimming: Please note that trimming shrouds is a common task when retrofitting. Whether required to clear part of the projector, or fit within the geometry of your headlight housing; it’s normal. Luckily, they’re made of plastic – making that easily possible.
Whats Included: 2 x E46-R Shrouds
