Default 94 850 pre-wired for fogs?

Putting a new 850 R front bumper on my 850 turbo. New bumper has foglight holes so i guess i will have to put fogs in. (Iam tempted just to leave the holes! LOL) I know later 850s were prewired, having just loose connectors unused if no fogs were on that particular models. Were these on the 1994 model year?
Regardless, are there differences in fog assemblies ... would a used one have the proper connector if it were from a different year if it otherwise fit?... are there any other years assembly that will fit the 94 hole?
IT LOOKS like the fog assemblies just pop in and would be held by clips...any guidance?
MANY THANKS in advance!

It should all be prewired. Look on your bumper or up close to the fender from behind the bumper and look for wiring just hanging there.
Also look behind the blank plugs next to the headlight switch the plug should mounted to the back of the blank plate.

But you will have to add 2 relys under the dash and replace the headlight with one from a car with fogs.(A 960 one works as well)

The assembly's bolt up to the aluminum part of the bumper from the backside.
You will need to R foglights if you want them to fit properly.

The white car in my Sig is only a turbo I did the R front end conversion with the lights.

hmm..you mean dash switches? rectangular.. already has fog switch for rear fog light....thought it might have connector for front hook up, if not already connected. relays for fogs behind dash or under hood?

i have the 2 bulb headlights in mine ...do you mean the whole bucket? or ....sorry, dont have it handy since it is at the body shop..my friend there told me that to refinish the lower bumper was so expensive [wife REALLY scrubbed it up!!]it would probably be about same cost if i bought a new bumper (i get a discount since i work at another car dealership...) i DO have the new bumper cover in a box ready to take over there.... he is planning to put it back with removeable pins in case i have to take it back off!

2 relays will go under the dash and the headlight relay is under the cover in the fuse panel area in the cowl.

The rear foglight switch is next to the cluster. The front foglight switch will be next to the headlight switch.
