    Sorry I didn't take any pictures, I have the Valeo headlights which seem to be different to the US spec lights and the DRL's from eBay fitted straight onto the headlight clips.
    I used trim removal tools bought from a motorist discount shop (Supercheap Auto). They are very easy to fit nothing to make you scratch your head.
    I found a fuse that was powered up when the accessory is turned on and then used a piggy back fuse plugged into that circuit to power the lights up when the car is switched on. I then spliced into the main beam circuit (blue/brown wire at the back of the headlight multiplug) and connected the white wire for the light controller. When this wire is powered up then it switches off the DRL's which is a requirement in Australia.
    After all this was fitted they worked perfectly but caused my digital radio signal to drop out so I then fitted ferrite cups on the wires going to the LED lights so they wouldn't act as an antenna for the radio frequency the lamps create.

    hey mate

    any chance you took some pictures while you were installing your ebay DRLs?

    I've got a 2015 Kuga 2.0 AWD and have been wanting to install a pair of LED DRLs as well and wanting to find a pair that can fit into that spot where the black trims are

    Were they hard to remove? i've got some trim removal tools that i purchased from ebay awhile ago, just those flat trim removal tools

    any help is much appreciated!
