Fog Light Help

Hi all

I've removed my square fog lamp that hung under the rear bumper, and wired up the off side reversing lamp to become the new fog lamp. I first used a red LED bulb from halfrauds, the light out put was hopeless so I used 25w red bulb but this only shines a very pale pink almost white light,which I'm sure would fail the mot. How does using the third break light as a fog light work,does it still work as a break light,does it still pass the mot. Is there any way I can get more red light out of the reversing lamp.

was the halfords lamp a 21w equivalent? I would take it back if it don't hit the mark.
I used a 23w red coated lamp. Not the legal 21w but after the red filtering its the same light output. Its red too, not some washed out looking colour. I think you have just been unlucky tbh.
