Auto-dimming mirror.

I would like to retro fit an auto-dimming mirror from a MKII (BL) MPS 3, to my MKI (BK) MPS 3.
Having auto lights and wipers, has narrowed my search to a OEM MKII Mazda 3 mirror, as it has the "wings" on the mirror arm to attach the windscreen mounted sensor cowling. So far, so good. I've not purchased the mirror yet, as it only comes supplied with a short length of wiring, thus I need to know which colour wire is to go to a positive feed from the mirror harness, and which colour wire goes to ground.
Anyone able to supply a link (or knowledge) to the auto-dimming wiring for a 2010 MPS 3 (Mazdaspeed3) mirror?
Actually, I'd of thought that ANY 3 with an auto-dimming mirror would provide a wiring schematic.
Thanks guys, for any help.

A cheeky bump to the top for my own post. Any one able to tell me which colour wire is positive, and which colour wire is negative in a 2010 Mazda 3 auto-dimming mirror harness? The UK version of a Mazda 3 MPS was never offered with an auto-dimming mirror, so unfortunately, there isn't a harness tucked away ready for plug and play. I'll have to wire it myself. Easy enough to do, if only I could find which is 12v positive and which wire is negative. I could of course buy a complete kit and mirror brand new, but I'm as tight as a gnats chuff, so a second-hand one from the scrap yard is the order of the day. I'm not fussed about wiring up the reverse gear aspect of it. Cheers.
