DRL Installtion - Help wanted

Tried searching but could not find a thread on this topic.

Have a 2006 1.5 Impreza and need to install DRL (Daytime running lights) as the law changed here on 1st Jan (must have DRLs or headlights on during the day).

I have bought DRL LED lights and a controller.

This module needs the following connections:

+12v - Battery connection (which I could connect directly to the Battery)
-12v - Earth (Which I assume just needs to go the a chassis earth point)
+12v ACC Input Ignition signal
+12v Input head light low beam signal

+12v connection to lamps - to Module
-12v Earth for lamps

I'd rather not cut into wires, so wanted to know the best solution for this installation.

Some help would be appreciated.

Re: DRL Installtion - Help wanted

without connecting to any loom then its impossible,
You can do everything but the low beam without touching your original wiring,
Id suggest mounting the controller module in front of the battery, behind the headlight that side so all your wiring is in one area at least.
