Default Installing HID lights in my 2012 Civic and I need projector lights?

Just purchased some HID lights online that PepBoys will be installing for me on Sunday since the hood is way too crammed for me to do it on my own. The kit I purchased comes with a ballast and everything. I bought the 6000k HID's and I do not want to blind the other drivers on the road. Do I have to purchase projector lights along with the HIDs? Is there any site that you guys know where I can buy them at? I have a 2012 Honda Civic LX, by the way! Thanks!

I feel like my headlights are gonna look like this after the HID lights are installed;

But I want them to look more like this (scroll to the red one);

Yes by law you need projector head lights. You may get away with the 6k though as that is what most stock HID cars have. Only reason the aftermarket kits are illegal is because the grey foil like stuff in the headlight reflects the light making a blare.
