Exclamation HID Headlights/Projector Headlights

Had a question for everyone.

With my used/new 2008 Base PT I bought, I want to upgrade the lighting to HID Headlights, however, If I just stick HID's in the stock Reflector Housings it will cause much unwanted glare to other drivers.

The company I got my projector lenses on my now long gone 01 PT and my long gone 09 GT have gone out of business and I have yet to find a place that makes Projector Lenses for the PT. Does anyone here know of any places that have/Make Projectors for the PT Cruiser? I'd like to get Projector HID Housings but if none can be found then I'd have to go with HID's in the stock Reflector Housings.

Well, when I had my other PT's with the HID's in the reflector housings I noticed there was a lot of glare but aimed right the glare was minimal. However, back then I didn't care much about this as I cared more about seeing than what others saw/thought.

But, now after doing a lot of research and seeing these more and more, I can see how it affects other drivers. Which is why I am looking into Projector HID Headlights.
