fitting resistors for led side lights??

Right so I have put on some LED strips running of my sidelights and change my main beams 2 xenon look alikes they all look sexy besides one thing....... The stupid yellow sidelights so i ordered some led sidelights. I had a feeling fitting them was not goin to be as straight forward as I wanted being a fiat and all I should of expected it. I put them in and they started flashing im now assumin i need to fit resistors this is were I get lost. How hard is it to fit them and do they damage anything besides having to cut into the wiring?

Resistors wouldn't damage anything all they do is remove the extra power that a halogen needs compared to an LED, I guess if your upgrading your sidelights to LED then you are gonna upgrade your DRL bulbs too, as they look the cheapest out of all the bulbs!

I jist went to fit my resistors to my siddlights and seems to be ok but i wasnt too sure where to sit the resistor i may extend the wire abit so its not inside the bulb compartment, also the plugs dont fit for the number plate
