Default puddle light mod help

So am thinking about doing this to make my gs look cool and make my car stand out. My major concern is the wiring part. What should i tap into for the power source?I don't want a separate switch. . Would like to come on when door opens and turn off after locking car in auto mode. And be able to turn on when going for a drive...p.s.if a switch has to be installed the most cleanest/stock looking there is. I really don't want to drill any panels anywhere in the car.

Why not just buy the plug-n-play Leuxs LED puddle lights off ebay. Exact fit, same plug...clean. Even adjustable.

MustangSal was talking about Lexus logo courtesy lights, logo puddle lights are not available..

For puddle lights, installing a brighter/different color LED bulb in the mirrors is the only option.
