Map lights, or the pair of lights above your front seats, 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 the map lights on newer luxury vehicles. You can also increase the brightness with SMF2 or SMF6 bulbs, to improve the performance of your map lights.

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



SMF2: This bulb has a standard festoon base, with two 5050-size Epistar SMDs and a protective cover for added durability and style. Direct replacement, plug and play.

SMF6: Standard festoon base, with six 5050-size Epistar SMD chips arranged on a rectangular panel. Direct replacement, plug and play.

SMD12 Board: This is an LED panel, fitted with 12 5050-size Epistar SMD chips. Comes with spring-loaded festoon-style adapter for direct installation. Plug the adapter into the bulb socket, then just stick the board in place with the mounting adhesive pad. The board-and-adapter design allows for extremely high brightness compared to a simple bulb.

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:

SMF2: Slightly lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern color of LED.
SMF6: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs.
SMD12 Board: Much brighter than OEM bulbs. These are bright!

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. Complete 180 Review by Nicholas

    Get rid of the Stock Ugly Orange Lights and Replace with these new state of the art LED's. (Posted on 7/1/17)

  2. No Brainer Upgrade Review by Tim

    Bought for Elantra GT, such a huge difference compared to the stock bulbs. Provides a clean modern look.

    Installation was easy, but they need to be installed at an angle tilted slightly towards the back of the car, since the lights are slightly longer than the OEM bulbs. If the bulbs are tilted towards the front of the car, the map light switch won't work.

    P.S. I mistakenly bought the SMF6 vanity light LED, but figured they are pretty much the same 31mm festoon bulb. (Posted on 7/18/16)

  3. SMF6 Map Lights Review by Jeremy

    These SMF6 map light bulbs look great in my car. You have to bend the metal tabs back a little to install but very satisfied. (Posted on 5/21/16)

  4. Very cool! Review by Andrew

    I put two blue map lights in my new Elantra GT (having used two orange ones to great effect in my orange Veloster), and also an extra-bright blue map light. With the blue dashboard lighting and the black exterior, it looks really slick.

    I have had some difficulty getting the one map light to stay installed properly, but that's a fault of the tight and touchy clip in the housing, not the bulb. Also, the bulbs stay dimly lit whenever the car is on because the car seems to be passing enough current to keep the bulbs on at all times, but I doubt it's enough to be any concern.

    Overall, very pleased with the effect! A nice, cheap mod to make my leased GT a little more personal. (Posted on 12/28/15)

  5. Much Better Look Review by MichaelLC

    Good lights.

    SMF6 Cool White in 2015 Elantra increases the brightness from OEM and gives a cool look. Pairs well with dome light.

    Installation was fairly easy, LED board must be installed at an angle - towards driver & passenger respectively. (Posted on 12/16/15)

  6. Much Better Review by Justin

    I was sent the SMF6 bulb to review and all I have to say is, its worth it! The LED's brighten up the interior much better and give it a much higher end feeling. I love the 6000k color and definitely recommend! Fits perfectly in the Elantra GT. (Posted on 8/8/15)

  7. Excellent! Review by Carlos

    Bought SMF6 (94 lumens) - 2 min install and look great! Bright cool white. (Posted on 4/5/14)

  8. Nice and bright Review by 520Velo

    Used the stage 2 pure white light. Coupled with the dome light it makes seeing our newborn son in the backseat very easy, and makes finding a dropped pacifier even easier. The bright light makes seeing the ground outside the car very easy so my wife doesn't have to step in any puddles or sticky puddles of nasty stuff at the grocery store. Thanks DD.

  9. Lights Review by Elantra

    I bought the stage 3 map lights for my gf's elantra and they look awesome really bright took less than 2 minutes to install. (Posted on 7/16/13)
