Question Wipac Driving Lamps HELP!

Hi I have a 2005 Mini Cooper base and I bought a set of Wipac's Driving Lamps and there are literally no instructions with it. All that came in the packaging were the lamps with small wires coming from the bottom. Nothing else, no mounting hardware or anything. Anyone have a website or advice for me? The box says easy installation.... Doesnt seem easy to me.

You can get the mounting bracket from mini madness (stronger then stock type) drill 3 holes for each bracket and use steel pop rivets. Wiring is the headache if you car has daytime running lights. The reason I'd it send lower voltage to your driving light relay if dl switch is left on. This will cause relay to switch on and off rapidly and will burn it out. The dealer can turn off the drl for as charge of one hour labor.( rip off) you could bypass using the high beam circuit but this would be a pita to have to reach and switch light off every time car approaches. Now to answer how to wire: one wire from light goes to a ground the other goes to a positive source for power. I recommend using a fused relay to protect your wiring.
