Glow Plug Voltage - quick question

I just bought new bosch glow plugs for my 1977 300D. They're the pencil style, but they are the 18mm ones that fit into the engine without conversion. It starts up great! Here's my question: The original plugs were also pencil style, and they were 9v. The new ones are 11v. Will I have any problems down the road? Like with fuses, etc.?

Thanks!

The glow-plug circuit is protected with a 80A fuse (if it is kept more or less orginal). 11V is normal for pencil glow plugs, so I would expect more problems (burnt out plugs) with 9V plugs.
