Installing DRLs (Day running lights)

Hi guys! I recently bought a pair of DRLs. The kit came pretty raw, so there were only the DRLs, mountings, screws. Ive read a few tutorials and how to videos online on how to install them but most of them came with a module so its not applicable for my case. My DRLs came only with positive and negative wires. The most basic installation that i know would be to just connect the wires to the battery. But there are also other methods like tapping it to the headlight wire, ignition switch etc. Any advice out there on what is the best method and how to install them? Thanks in advance!!

You can tap wires directly from the headlight relay which should be in your fuse box or close by in the engine bay. Even though LEDs don't really consume much power, I'd still go through a relay instead of tapping it from any 12v source. Should be a simple job, probably 30mins total. Remember to disconnect the battery and be very careful when using wrenches on terminals, don't want to short circuit with the car's body. D=

The most difficult part in these kind of things would be where to mount it. I wouldn't drill into bodywork or cut holes.
These kind of bling stuff, 3M tape would be the best IMO. Just stick under the front air dam/intake.

Mind me for this noob question but how do i tap wires directly from the headlight relay? Does this mean soldering the wires or just purely inserting wires?
