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: Morimoto shrouds are made from the highest quality plastic and have by far the most durable metalized chrome finishes. 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.
A or B: At The Retrofit Source, we're also meticulous with quality control. If a shroud has a minor factory defect; we sell it at a discount as a "B stock" unit - which is perfect for budget retrofits or when painting them is part of the plans. If you won't settle for anything less than perfect and plan to leave them chrome; go for the "A Stock" Shrouds.
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 shroud to reduce the inside diameter, making them more of a "press fit" onto the lens holder of the projector. Note: centric rings require cutting to be used with E46-R shrouds! JB Quik Weld is STRONGLY recommended in order to prevent the shrouds from vibrating loose over time.
LED Halos: Are a unique and effective way to further customize the look of your projector retrofit. The Profile Pivot (switchback) and Profile Pixel (RGB) systems are easy to mount on the front of your shrouds, are reliable, and of course awesome looking. To determine which size is best for you - check out the size-guide in the "In Action" images section below.
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. We recommend a Dremel hand tool with EZ Lock cutting wheels to make the job easy.
Trusted: For more than a decade, we've worked hard to earn our killer reputation. Car guys world-wide know that TRS carries the internet's best selection of high performance automotive and powersport lighting products at the best prices, and we've got the best, most knowledgeable team of real enthusiasts to help back it up. If we sell it, then you bet we've put it to the test on our own cars, trucks, and bikes. Need a recommendation on parts for your project? Got a tech question? Wholesale inquiry? Contact us!

Ive been using these shrouds for years, evenn the original e46 shrouds, so when the replicas were created, it was even better than originals. Definitely recommend them for anyone

Been using e46 shrouds for years and years and was glad when the replicas came out, cause finding OEM ones was becoming hard for awhile. The replica ones are much better than the actual OEM ones.
