Thanks Sean,

So apparently 96's (95.5 in US) and up didn't have a fog lamp relay just the
fog lamp switch fed directly from the headlamp switch which then in turn
feed power to the rear fog switch.

I do like the concept behind DRLs so would like to keep the rears on and
will wire the fogs to be powered all the time. I have a HID kit for the
lo-beams to be installed soon - didn't want them on as DRLs.

To disable to DRL on the low beam, you need to find the DRL connector, which
is tucked way up under the driver footwell, it's a purple connector IIRC. By
disconnecting this, it will deactivate the DRL on the low beams, if you want
to turn off all of the other DRLs (tail, etc.) you will have to pull the DRL
relay too.

To wire up the fogs so they are DRL is going to be tricky. The easiest way
is to pull the fog relay and jump it and  leave the fog light switch on,
this will give you a DRL.
