Vanity lights, or the lights which illuminate the vanity mirror on your vehicle under the sun visor, use incandescent bulbs from the factory, giving them a yellowish color. By replacing these factory bulbs with LEDs, you can add a luxurious and modern look to your vehicle, with a cool white color, just like newer luxury vehicles. Sometimes a warm color is still desired with the mirror, in which case you can still upgrade brightness while using warm white LEDs.

The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulb!



SMF1: This bulb has a standard 28mm fuse-style base, with a single 5050-size Epistar SMD. Direct replacement, plug and play.

SMF2: Standard 28mm fuse-style base, with two 5050-size Epistar SMDs. Direct replacement, plug and play.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS.


These LEDs are available in many crisp, bright colors. White and warm white are the most popular colors, for a modern look with maximum visible light.

You can also select blue, red, green, or amber to add a unique look to your interior. Please note- when ordering these unique colors, we recommend moving to the next-brighter stage for acceptable light output.

Color Reference Banner


Diode Dynamics offers several brightness options so you can choose what fits you best.  These options are listed by the design and the lumen output of each bulb:

SMF1: Slightly lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern color of LED.
SMF2: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs.

Lumens: BUYER BEWARE! Most sellers just provide "calculated" lumen numbers, based on the maximum potential brightness of the LED chips on the bulb. For example, if a bulb has five 10-lumen chips, they will rate it at 50 lumens. However, this is not accurate, as the design of an LED bulb does not get rid of heat fast enough to run the LEDs at maximum.

These "calculated" lumen ratings are much, much higher than the true, measured light output, so it will look like competitors' bulbs are brighter than ours. This is because Diode Dynamics does not provide inflated "calculated" numbers; we believe it is misleading. We test the actual brightness of the bulbs in our lab, to provide real lumen output measurements. Our measurements are accurate, but they are usually much lower than the misleading "calculated" figures. Please click here to learn more about LED brightness measurement.



LED Components. Diode Dynamics uses only the highest quality LED chips in the production of its bulbs. This means we use only brand-name suppliers such as Epistar, Cree, Osram, and Samsung.

While Diode Dynamics bulbs may look the same as others on the market, most copycat bulbs use economy-grade LED chips in order to reduce costs. This greatly reduces the reliability and overall brightness of the bulb when you compare it to Diode Dynamics.

Construction. Although LED technology allows for extremely long bulb life, the market is flooded with cheap LED bulbs that fail prematurely due to inferior construction. The worst enemy of LEDs is excessive heat, and when bulbs are not designed properly, they do not disperse heat as well, leading to premature failure.

Off-brand, cheap bulbs exhibit poor solder uniformity, high levels of flux in the solder, uneven chip placement, low-gauge terminal wires, poor assembly, and bulbs held together with inferior adhesives. At best, solder joints will crack and fail on low-quality LEDs after a few weeks of use. In the worst case, these bulbs can damage housings as the extra flux and adhesive evaporates and creates a residue on the lens of the housing.

Diode Dynamics bulbs are produced with modern, computerized equipment, and only the best materials, to ensure complete uniformity, high quality, and long bulb life.

All Diode Dynamics products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year limited replacement warranty. For more information, please view the Warranty Information page.

  1. Does NOT fit my '05 LGT Review by Nate

    These unfortunately won't fit in my '05 LGT. This vanity light requires contact at both ends, whereas the bulbs on my '05 LGT are the type with the two wires that bend to either side at only one end of the bulb.
    Still giving high marks for good quality product. (Posted on 8/16/16)

  2. A Nice Upgrade Review by Tim

    A quality product, ample amounts of light. Easy to install and fits like a glove. I must say that stage 1 is probably bright enough for most people because the light is shining in your face. (Posted on 7/2/16)

  3. Very nice lighting for interior. Review by Michael

    I purchased a cheap interior set off Amazon for the visor lights and these proved to be 10 times better. You truly do get what you pay for. (Posted on 4/25/16)

  4. Very Bright Review by Spencer

    Cool White (6000K) SMF2 (16 Lumens). These are very bright LEDs especially when its in front of your face. If you don't want to be blind just stick with the SMF1 (8 Lumens). (Posted on 5/21/15)

  5. Almost to bright! Review by Scott

    I ordered 2 pairs of cool white SMF1 vanity lights for my 2014 Subaru Legacy. After reading reviews and seeing pictures of these vanity lights on various forums, I decided to go with stage 1. The output is perfect for me. They are super bright and give off a nice icy white color. I'm glad I didn't go for the brighter bulbs otherwise I'm not sure I would be able to even use the mirror due to be blinded by these high quality lights! (Posted on 9/22/14)

  6. 2012 Legacy LED Upgrade Review by Eric

    I just purchased and installed the Stage 2 Vanity bulbs in my 2012 Subaru Legacy. They are a dramatic improvement over the stock halogen lights.

    I am all about bright light but I'm glad I got just the stage 2. Considering you need to be able to see when you flip the visor down, I don't think it is necessary to blind yourself with stage 3.

    Don't make the same mistake I did though... without thinking, I only ordered 1 set of vanity lights. Of course when I went to install them, I realized 1 set is only for 1 mirror. So now my whole interior has been converted to stage 2 lighting except for my passenger vanity mirror. I will definitely be getting another set here soon.

    If you're looking for a cheap and easy way to improve the overall look of your car, interior LED installation is the best way. I highly recommend these bulbs and working with Diode Dynamics! (Posted on 3/3/14)

  7. Why not. Review by Steve

    Admittedly, I purchased these just to complete the interior LED set for my 08 LGT, since I don't really use the vanity lights all that often. But it's very easy to install and the light output for the Stg2 (white) is obviously much better and cleaner than stock, and the lady friend always appreciates the brightness when applying makeup in my car, especially at night.

  8. Great product Review by Charlie

    I got these for one car and ended up using them in another but the lights were so bright you could use them as direction map lights. (Posted on 5/24/13)

  9. Another amazing product from Diode Dynamics Review by Justin

    Really easy installation that comliments the stage 2 interior upgrade (map, dome, door and trunk). Just remember to get two sets (one for each visor mirror) in the LGT. I was thinking pair and need another set! Great output! (Posted on 1/15/13)
