I haven't seen any advertized, but someone has done it.

Take a look here:

I've installed aftermarket projectors on my headlamps. There is only 1 screw for removal of the lens cover and a generous application of heatgun does the trick of softening the goop used to hold it together. Installation takes a few minutes after that at the most.

These are the ones I got: G5 Bi Xenon HID Projector Lens Kit angle eyes +devil eyes+14months warranty-in Lights & Indicators from Automobiles & Motorcycles on Aliexpress.com

You can request for no angel/devil eyes if they seem too tacky to you though the angel eyes seem like work as decent DRLs. The retaining ring requires a minor mod that takes a few minutes (file off an alignment bit) as Getz's alignment for the H4 bulb is abit different from most cars.

thanks for the replies.

i was actually looking for those whole headlight assembly kits and not a DIY projector headlamps on stock headlight casings.

here in our country there are a lot of universal projector headlamps with/without angel eyes kits. but im little bit worried of doing DIY to my headlights that might turn out building moist inside it once done.

You can do as a local guy did for his Getz (wise move by the way!)

He wanted to pimp out his Getz, but not in a way that he couldn't turn it back to "factory specs", besides other things, he bought a couple of "non original OEM" headlights (Chinese made, very cheap) for about $50 each, and did the modification on the aftermarket ones. He did the "blackout except reflectors thing", but it could have been the projector light modification.

So, this may be a good solution. Get a couple of non original headlights (cheapest ones around) and do the custom modifications on them. That way, you will get the best of both worlds. You can have your projector headlights and at the same time, have the original factory lights (stored away) just in case... like for when the time comes to sell the car and not have the prospective buyer get spooked out from some modifications...

... at least, from experience, during the past two years, looking for used cars for our daughters, I saw many cars, but every time someone showed me a car that has been pimped out with non factory modifications, the same thing came to my mind: "this car must have received a lot of punishment..." and immediately discarded the idea to buy it.
