I installed standard halogen 55W H11 yesterday, nothing blew and of course there is more light. First I removed the black fog trim (5 tabs to push, a pain), then the fog assemblies and using cutters, I removed about 1/8" of the black plastic which prevented the H11 to fit as one of the tabs is wider than the 35W H8; I thought this was much easier than cutting off the metallic tab on the bulb and the H8 still fits properly.
Next step will be to add LED DRL's as I don't want the fogs which double as DRL's in Canada to melt the housing. For now, I'll jut leave the headlights on all the time making sure the fogs are off and I may add an indicator light because this is missing on the MO, a stupid thing IMO; I could use the blank plate on the left side of the dash which is reserved for the Lane Departure and Blind Spot Warning switch.
