US to UK light conversions

SO... I just bought a new Titanium 4Dr and i need to figure out a way to get a fog light to work in the REAR. i don't want to install an exterior, and i would like to just convert one of the 3 brake lights (preferrably to boot-top) so that it would turn on and stay on with the front fogs. i've run into a few problems...

1) cut the wire to the brakelight and ran a wire all the way to the fuze relay in the passanger pannel. Problem was... the ground and the hotwire were both hot...

2) attempted to access the wires set behind the light control toggle in the driver side. Problem was... didn't light the rear.

my next option is to completely remove the front fogs and splice the wire from there to the back, but that is a LOT of work for a brand new car.

also, i could just run a toggle switch, but i kind of want to avoid that...

if there are any suggestions or alternatives, feel free to let me know!
