D L R's and Headlamps on

Hi
Just bought a 2006 2.2 CTDi EX and this is a superb car. 60,000 miles and drives like new.I am very happy indeed-
It is a UK car but lives with me in Italy. It is now fitted with winter tyres and still feels agile although not quite as agile as it was.
Need to run with DLR's or headlamps-on out of town and I keep forgetting to switch them on, so I slipped a piece of black card between the screen and the interior mirror bracket which covers the sensor, problem solved.
However I want to fit LED's to the headlamp's like I have seen here on the forum. Can anyone tell me where to take the feed from which will turn them on an off with the ignition key?

The interior fusebox has a +12v ignition source you can tap but you will need a DRL controller to turn them off when you turn on your headlights.

It also has a +12v with sidelights.

You can use that with a Normally Closed relay to switch off the DRLs when you turn on the headlights but this needs some electrical knowledge.
