I bought a new set of LED DRL from V-led thinking it would an easy install but I honestly have no clue where to start haha. I was thinking if anyone could help me out or point me to a video that could help. Thanks

It's not that hard. I did both sides of mine in about 30 minutes.
There are a few 10mm bolts that you need to unscrew and you should be able to pry the headlight out just enough to get your hand in and turn the DRL bulb cover.
Remove the stock bulb, cut the two wires, use the included splice connectors to connect the wires, put the new bulb in, and then stuff all the wires and such in and recover.
Gently push the headlight back into the right grooves and put the 10mm bolts back in.

I did find it easier to do all of this with the top shield removed (held on with 8 or so little black snap connectors that can be removed with a flathead) and the 5 or 6 bolts that hold the top of the front grill on removed.

Give it a shot. It's not that bad.
I would replace the top bulbs (parking lights - 194 i believe) at the same time to make it easier.

Thank you Elusive! I will give this a go once I get the parking lights (curently out of stock) so I can do them all at once and be done with it. Thanks again

Which bulbs are you wanting to use for the driving lights?
I originally put 6K in my car for the top driving light and for the fogs but later pulled them out and put in 5K.
If you want a set of the 6Ks I can sell you mine real cheap. Say 40% off. They were used for only a few days. This is what I have:

I'm not sure if that's the right bulb. Sylvania lists it as a 194.
I used the 194 listed above in my post and it worked perfectly.

The bulb you list is a 3 star output rating. The 194 that I listed is a 4 star output rating.

I can't say for sure if that bulb will work or not, but it's not a 194.

Hmmm, now I'm confused lol. I see where Sylvania lists it as a 194, but I emailed V-Leds and they told me I needed the other one. I am not sure what the difference is here. I will try to figure it out and if it is the 194 I will buy it. Do you know the difference?

Top bulb is a 194, next down is DRL 5202. Then your D1S HID, fogs are 9145 or H10. hope this helps.

the top is def a 194. Check with ebay before VLED. I scored some kick ass LEDS similar to the VLEDS for $6 from Hong Kong. Work great and are similar looking to the HIDs when both are on. This bulb change is a must for these escalades. It looks awesome. If anyone would like to see a pic of the lights i got, please PM me your email address, ill send you pics that i have on my phone of the Hong Kong bulbs.

From what i've read, the vleds MAY be brighter, but i've never seen them in person. For $6 im very happy with what I have. There is only 1 row of LEDS and 1 or 2 on the top (which would point forward).

I have a set of brand new 5202 need to sell real cheap with battery harness...but i would not use them for drl...they have been melting the headlights..more specifically the little plastic reflector melt and burns up headlight...my car guy wouldnt even put them in because of all the melted ones that have been coming back on caddies...use an led not an hid....just my 2 cents

still for sale if you dont care..cheap

that the only thing i worry about for the middle light is the chance of ruining the nice look chrome
