I had a few inquires about "Projector Shroud wear" So I shall address it!
Short Version: It’s nothing significant, don’t worry. I note it just because I have to.
First of all, I have a bit of OCD with these parts, simply because I go though a lot more than anyone so I nit pick minute details that some (maybe even most) wont notice. I've been through 50+ lights, trust me I've seen it all. Call me an Underevaluator.
I put it the wear remark on nearly every listing since at the age of the cars now, it's a given. (Plus it’s not new $1300 unbakeable euro hella set)
Q: What is the wear?
A: It is wear as a result of failed adjusters. This is due to the auto leveler being the only thing holding the projector unit and allowing it to flop around inside the light.
Q: How bad can it get?
A: Sometimes minimal, sometimes a few inches in a circular area due to contact against the outer bezel shroud
Q: Can it be fixed?
A: To an OEM degree? No way. This coating hates anything abrasive, even a moderate microfiber cloth wiping.
This is why i say to OEM euro light owners NEVER attempt to clean their euro clear corners or bezel rings of any cosmetic markings. That specific coating is even more sensitive to a gloved finger print. Ask me how I know!
Q: How noticeable can it get?
A: If you or I are a concourse Judge, maybe. Otherwise hardly at all. Majority of the time is it invisible due to other reflective surfaces/angles in the housing.
On other occasions the upper arch of the high beam can experience wear/minor fading. Why? Daytime running lights! You would be surprised what the heat can do.
