There is quite a few threads on this already, do a search for drls. As far as I'm aware its up to you how you wire them, you can have them come on with your sidelights and go off when headlights come on, or you could have them come on with the ignition or you could have a specific switch if you wanted.

As said before, you can simply attach to the positive and negative wires of the side lights, they will then come on when the side lights come on.

Or you can fit a relay to either trigger them to come on when the car is unlocked or to turn off then the headlights are turned on.

Where abouts are you based as we have some tech guys on here that may be local to you for some face to face help.

Torres, I'd really like them to come on with the ignition and stay on at all times :)

I'm based in Hertfordshire.

Where do you want to mount them? If they're around the headlights or in the headlights they have to go off or dim when you indicate

i intended to put them under the contours of the headlights, like the audi style ones.
See image: http://i46.tinypic.com/oqx8x4.png

i've never heard of them having to dim before .. :/
