Just did the H9 swap today during lunch. Amazing how easy it is to change bulbs in this car, took about 10 mins total.
I used a small pair of wire cutters to snip off the tab, then found a set of small "hobby" files at Home Depot to file down the remainder. Worked real well and only took a couple mins per bulb.
Won't know how much brighter they are until I take the car out tonight after dark.
