Power can easily be taken from the fuse box, both high beams have separate fuses after the relay. SO they are powered only when high beams are active.
I used one of these to get a signal for my external relay

EDIT: found a photo online. USe fuse 14 or 15 to control your signal.

Try the fuse box next to the ICE.

Quite an easy install. :D

Main beam trigger & power from engine bay fuse box.
I shared the power tailgate supply for power to the led light bar.
I used piggy back connectors as I did not want to cut any wires.
Mounted the relay on the inner wing.

The led light bar bolted under the front crossbeam.
Fabulous lighting for those quiet A & B roads.
The mounting position is too low to give a good spread on the motorway though.

What about the cooling capacity? I can't imagine the cooling opening under the number plate with the large radiator behind it is there just for the looks?

Looks good.!

Where is the relay in the circuit, aren't you wiring directly from the high amperage headlight and tailgate fuses?

If you use your car in a warm climate, KWh is quite correct. It's not wise to restrict any airflow.
Do this at your own risk..... ;)

I used an ordinary automotive relay rated at about 30 amps & secured it next to engine bay the fuse box.

I wired it something like this:
