Question "How to fit" DRL's?

Hi, Has anyone fitted after market DRL's to a MY2010?? If so what connection did you fit them to i.e. do they have to be switched on manually or did you wire them into the ignition? maybe at the fuse box?? Any assistance would be gratefully accepted as I am generally not very technically minded. Is this an easy job or should I take to an auto electrician

Thanks

Searching in the correct section helps.
Phillips makes some plug and play.

PS the plural of DRL is DRLs!

Is it just me?

But I find it funny when people get corrected on speling gramer an puntuation. ha ha

always an English teacher somewhere, and they're normally correcting me. take it with the humour that it is intended ...... if your correcting people because you think you're better and superior then you can do one in my book.

I've found searches work better if the word is spelt correctly.

Look what the search shows me:
https://www.gtr.co.uk/forum/126533-my...ng-lights.html

And the product I referenced in my first reply:
Buy the philips LED Daytime lights Guide 12825WLEDX1 Guide

Which can be found for £60 on ebay.

The wiring is really easy. They have a 12v live (to battery), an earth (to chassis), ACC live or ignition live (I used the switch live from 1 of the relays in front of the battery) and finally a lights out wire (goes to live on sidelight).
Thanks all the wiring done. Simples.
