Joins the lineup of compact shrouds that are designed specifically for the Mini H1 series of projectors. Designed to mimic the style of the new BMW X5 SUV headlights, these shrouds offer excellent coverage, compact dimensions, and an attractive, techie look.
With a Type II White/Amber Switchback LED circuit built into the integrated acrylic halo on the front; there’s no need for any extra LED halos or accent lighting here. Built-in, baby!
The X5-R will mount directly to all standard/generic and Morimoto Mini H1 Bi-xenon projectors with the four mounting points on the corner of the reflector bowl. No need for centric rings here, just a few machine screws and you’re ready to roll.
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 Dremel EZ Lock cutting wheels to make the job easy.
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. 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.
