Lightbulb Fog light wires

Hey guys,
The fog lights were gone on my e28 when I got it, and now I feel like putting some new ones on.

I looked today at the fog light wires, and I was wondering which one was the positive and which was the negative. The two wires that I see are Brown and Yellow (or maybe Yellow/Brown?) I need to know which ones are which because I don't think I'll be putting OEM on it at this time.

Bentley doesn't seem to have a wiring diagram for the fog lights. Just use an electrical tester, one should be 12 volts, the other ground.
