Default DRL's

So right now I have two options for DRL's. I've tried jumping those 3 points in the underhood fuse box, but that created another problem. So:

1.) I purchased the hamster unit from cambodian tire. That was the easy part. I know little about wiring and even less about auto electrical systems. If someone knows of a well detailed walkthrough onto how to install one of these on a 1995 WRX, please share. This is for passing OOP in BC.

2.) I much more inclined to go this route. I was recommended a local shop, here in Duncan. I spoke with the owner over the phone and he is familiar with giving USDM cars DRL's. However, he needs a wiring diagram for a JDM WRX to do this to my car, unless someone can confirm that the NA Impreza has an almost identical setup (matching wire colours are a must, eg/ JDM Impreza has x-coloured lowbeam wire, suggested comparable wiring has x-coloured lowbeam wire).

Pop the fog light switch out of the plastic surround, throw it behind the dash, and just leave the switch on. They will turn on/off with the car

It should take like 3 minutes and a screwdriver to do it.

I'd do that if I had fog lights.

So, I hooked the red up to the battery post. Grounded the black. Spliced the white into both wires that come off the right terminal on the headlamp (facing the connector) just under the fusebox. Tapping the green wire against the + battery post turns on both low beams. Now to find a decent signal for the green wire.
