Decided on these projectors to protect other drivers from my new headlights, for $50 on eBay:

Texenon Mini H1 Retrofit Bi Xenon HID Projectors with Mini Gatling Shrouds | eBay



Since the bulbs I bought have metal shrouds to simulate low/high beams, I may need to cut those off, but I'll play with it when they get here.
