Which fog wire on my JCW Clubman?

I have a 2009 JCW Clubman and the only mod I'm about to do is 4 x Hella 1000's using the out motoring brackets. After reading all the posts on fog lights- I have decided to not install a switch and directly wire the relay to a positive lead that serves my factory installed mini fog lights ( the ones in bedded into the bumper) Can one of you mini gurus tell me where is the best place to tap this wire and how to identify it (color or position coming out of the back of the mini fogs or other?)

The aim here is to have my factory mini fog lights and my new 4x Hella 1000's come on when I hit the switch in the cabin. I dont care about legality issues- I do some coastal/mountain fog driving and want to certifiably blind any animal in my way or let the big mean trucks know that I'm coming.

Cheers!

easiest way is to probably just run the relay from the back of one of the fogs like you said... if its like other cars i've done this to (not minis), then there is power and ground... and you can simply use a voltmeter or homemade bulb/wires to figure out which is hot.

thanks man - I was hoping that someone already has done this and I could take a short cut in identifying the wires. No probs- thanks.
