BULB DESIGN

HP5: Four high-power SMDs, under a diffusing lens. Just like the HP3, but run at higher power, with integrated copper plating for superior heat dissipation, allowing maximum brightness.

HP36: Full 360 degree illumination with 36 High-Power Samsung LEDs. Aluminum base for optimum heatsinking, and non-polar design for easy installation.

XP50: Each of the four sides of this bulb contains two 5W-rated chips, and the top is fitted with two more under a projector lens. Housed in an aluminum casing with textured finish for maximum heatsinking properties.

Fitment. All three bulbs use a quality inject-molded 921 terminal, with a sturdy base connector and proper pin alignment, designed for exact replacement of your factory 921 bulb. You will not need resistors for backup lights. Just replace the factory bulb.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS.


COLOR

These LEDs illuminate in a crisp, cool, bright, white hue for maximum light output.


BRIGHTNESS

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: 

HP5: Slightly lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern instant on/off of LED technology.
HP36: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs.
XP50: 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.

 

QUALITY

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, 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. Great product Review by Irace86

    Quality

    I don't really have any experience in buying LEDs to know if the price and quality are worst or best, but they work great and look/feel like quality parts, so the value is there.

    I got the HP36 210 lumens. They have that nice white look and are brighter than OEM, which was perfect for my tinted reverse lights. (Posted on 5/26/16)

    Great product. Solid. Bright. I bought the brightest one. The install was easy. Pop out, pop in. The results are night and day. I can actually see when I am backing up. This helps especially given the fact that BRZs are low cars. I bought Tail as Turn module along with this. Recommended. (Posted on 2/25/16)

    I installed these in my 4th Brake/Fog light. They are not as bright as the XP80's in my "turn signal as backup lights" but they do the job. I've ask the team at Diode Dynamics if they could make the XP80's with the same base as the XP50's so I can have both XP80's in both sets of backup lights. Thanks again Diode Dynamics and Nick S..

    I bought the XP 80's for my "Tail as Turn" lights to replace the turn signal bulbs as backup lights and I must say they impressed me! They are the brightest backup lights I've seen on any BRZ or FR-S! Everyone at the Subaru dealer wanted to know where to get them for themself's as well as customers asking for brighter backup lights. Thank you Diode Dynamics and Nick S.! Rick (Posted on 8/24/15)

    I bought HP36 cool white. Bulbs took 5 min to install and look awsome in my mirrors at night. It makes nighttime parking a breeze. Very bright white light. HP36 Bulbs are a little pricy but well worth the price in quality of the final product. (Posted on 5/14/15)

    Everyone at the Subaru dealer was asking me where to get them. I like the XP50's but I hope the guys put a 921 base on the XP80's so I have XP80's in both the Blinker(now a backup converted Blinker light)spot as well as the 4th Brake/Fog light backup lights on our 2013 BRZ. I only have Diode Dynamics in our BRZ. (Posted on 4/4/15)

    These pure white LEDs look much better than the OEM yellowish bulbs. I bought the stage 1 LEDs and they look great! They look just about as bright as the OEM bulbs, but the white light definitely stands out more than the yellow of the OEMs. (Posted on 11/17/14)

    I received the XP50 backup LEDs as a gift, and they are loads better than the stock incandescent bulbs! I'll see if I can make a comparison set of photos, but trust me - it's a very noticeable difference. Now I just need to install a backup camera to go with them and I'll be set! (Posted on 11/16/14)

  17. Quality bulbs with great customer support Review by PandaBRZ
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    This review is for the HP6 reverse lights for the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S. The stock lights are pretty bright but cast a yellowish glow. I replaced my license plate lights with cool white LEDs and my stock reverse lights just didn't match.

    I installed the HP6 bulbs and they were just about the same brightness but with a cool white hue. It looks a lot better now. The bulbs are great quality but you get what you pay for. Although not the cheapest option out there, Diode Dynamics stands by their products and offers a full 1 year warranty on them. (Posted on 8/16/14)

  18. Significantly improved backward visibility when backing up Review by MikeBRZ
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    Although they aren't on that much, these LEDs are a great addition to other LED lights on the back of the BRZ (turn signals and license plate lights). My middle-intensity lights were considerably brighter than the stock lights. They help significantly when backing up in wide spaces, as you can see further back and more importantly further to each side of the back of the car. They are a little tricky to install because the black plastic of the bumper is sharp and difficult to bend. (I would recommend using a rag to not cut your hands.) Good value, and I would recommend these LEDs. (Posted on 6/16/14)

  19. Greatly increased functionality Review by THEWAKLER
    Price

    Quality

    I ordered the Stage 2 and they greatly increased the backup light functionality. I could hardly use the OEM lights at night, and these Stage 2 make a vast improvement, providing much more usable light. Install was a little tricky, but the rear light housing is just a tight fit to access. (Posted on 2/3/14)

  20. Buy these, you will not regret it. Review by Turkish
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    I bought and installed the stage 2 bulbs for my BRZ and what a world of difference. The stock bulbs basically did not add to any sort of visibility as the tail lights provided much more light; this changed with the stage 2 reverse bulbs. I can reverse at night with much more confidence. (Posted on 1/23/14)

Backup LEDs are a direct replacement. Just change the bulb! You will not need any resistors or other accessories.

Remove your factory bulb

  1. 1. Access the bulb or tail light. You may need to pull back the trunk/cargo carpet and/or unscrew the visible nuts holding the light in.
  2. 2. Remove the backup bulb socket by twisting counterclockwise.
  3. 3. Remove the factory bulb from the socket.

 

Install your new LED bulb

  1. 1. Plug new LED bulb into socket by pushing it in fully.
  2. 2. Test the function of the bulb. If it does not work, remove it, rotate, and reinstall in the socket.
  3. 3. Insert socket back into place, and reassemble as necessary. That's it!
