That is what I would do...
I had a 95 Gs and I couldn't see anything. the best thing to do is what he mentioned.
Here is another option.
Before investing a large chunk of cash into an HID system, try a simple set of Sylvania Silverstar bulbs. They cost about $40 and made a world of difference in my car.
This is because you are taking a D2R type bulb designed for a reflector-type headlight and stuffing them in a projector-type light designed for the optics of a halogen bulb. In order to have a good working conversion, you need the D2S projector bulbs with OEM HID projectors (from BMW, Audi, MB, Jaguar, etc).
Trust me from experience, the optics make a difference. I tried my HIDs with the 'stock' projector just for fun and the optics were as I expected, crap. Throwing in the HID bulbs just for the look is why aftermarket use of them was banned. Do it the right way and you will be far happier and safer in the end.
Your projectors were designed for a halogen H3 bulb. You can upgrade to Silverstar H3 bulbs as I first did and you should see a noticable improvement.
If you want a legal/safe/working HID system, you will have to swap out more than just bulbs.
and I can vouch for his HID setup it is probably the brightest and best looking setup I have ever seen.
