bulldogs recomendation is actually a good one, you don't want to mess around in the engine bay. there is a fuse box passenger side footwell , better place to connect after market items.

I was more suggesting that LED strips are not a good mod but I agree with your suggestion as well.

These are not sticky strips - these are Audi style. I'll post pic when install them. I'd like to wire them independent of fog lights
