Panamera-LED: takes the original Panamera shrouds to an all new level of OEM plus! With a Type II White/Amber Switchback LED circuit built into the backside of the shroud that illuminates the four lenses on each corner, these are undoubtedly the most baller status shrouds we've ever offered. With excellent coverage for most projectors too, they're also very functional.
In Comparison: Don't make the mistake of thinking all shrouds are created equal. Even though less expensive alternatives may be available elsewhere: Morimoto Panamera LED's use an XSB Switchback driver and high quality LED PCB in place of the cheap crap found in the generics. Their 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. JB Quik Weld is also 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 all new 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 withEZ Lock cutting wheels to make the job easy.

I figured an extra $30 for DRLs on a retrofit was a very good deal, yet I got more than I bargained for. These come with two small electronic ballasts that serve two functions. First, they manage the current to prevent overdriving and burnout of the LEDs. Then, when sensing the turn signal they change the color of the LEDs from white to amber. The result is a "switchback" function like the newest model cars.
These shrouds are bright. The switchback function is amazing and I couldn't be happier. If you have room these are worth every penny.
You can almost drive with them. Be prepared for "bled over" of light above your HID curt off line. Not a problem, but it is there. These things can direct aircraft in daylight. Love the look.
Real happy with these.The leds are bright and also have a dimming function for when the projector is on.They fit TL projectors with TRFS tlr shield installed and lots of trimming to the front of the projector.Worth the extra cost for sure!
