Yup. did that mod to my S60.You have to trim one of the tabs off of the replacement H11 bulb in order to make it fit. It works wonders for a cheap lighting upgrade. there are how to do it vids on youtube. It is only a 5 watt increase so there are no worries about your wiring harnesses. Polish your lenses while your at it. Cheap and good.

Are you talking about the H9 to H11 conversion? It sounds like you are, but the bulb you need to modify is the H9 to fit in the H11. I have done this, it is great improvement. You get about 50% more lumens with only a 10-watt increase. Here's a great thread with a link to the bulb mod in the first post:

Another thing to definitely do, if you have not done so already, is aim your headlights, makes a world of difference as most P1 headlight assemblies seem to be factory set illuminating straight into the ground. Here's a link the headlight adjustment with a bunch of pics. I only adjusted the up/down (vertical), and clockwise raises the beam.
