So I want to Install Fogs, Help

I have a 2002 Ford Focus Se. I like the way that fog lights look on a car and that they serve a purpose. I know I will have to get a new lower grill as mine didn't come with fog lights, being the base model ugh. I have used the search to find anything on but no luck with it.
I would guess to just get OEM fog lights for the 00-04, and just buy different bulbs, or should I get an aftermarket brand?
Secondly the main question, I have read that some Foci have the wiring for fog lights on them already, where would I look for it to be on mine? How would I go about running the wiring? Is it really that difficult of a project that I want to do? i am very little electronically inclined.. I appreciate any feedback.

I bought a factory kit off eBay, all Ford parts. I have not installed it yet. I will scan the instructions to my Box account and post a link for you in case that helps you get an idea of what is involved.

I'm not sure how the factory wires go on your non foglight focus, but you can try a junk yard for the fogs/grill/any plugs you need. And if its already wired up for fogs you might need to pull a relay.

My 2000 ZTS came with the pigtails, look behind the bumper under the car. My right side was easy to find but I had to hunt for the left. I just bought OEM fog lights and bulbs and looked for the grille and relay at the junkyard.

HEY! If you can't find the pigtails, look UNDER the headlights. I replaced my headlights today and when I lifted up the passenger headlight, I found a set of wires that went into this plastic end piece, and it was mounted on the subframe(I guess that's what you call it). I didn't look too far into it though. Maybe they mounted the foglight pigtails there on the very early models and just stuck them behind the bumper after 2000.

I sure as hell couldn't find them when I needed to.
