**NOTE: Unplug the entire door light housing from the socket before replacing your factory bulb. If you have any questions about how to do so, please contact Diode Dynamics. 

FUNCTION

Door light bulbs are used to illuminate the step area when your doors are opened. From the factory, the bulbs are incandescent, lighting up in a yellowish color.

Newer luxury cars use LED modules to illuminate this area with a cool, white light. By changing your door light bulbs to LED, you can easily add this luxury look to your vehicle, while improving brightness for increased function and performance.

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

 

BULB DESIGN

SMD2: Compact design, with two 5050-size Epistar SMD chips, driven at high power for maximum effective brightness. Outputs at 180 degrees.

HP3: One high-power SMD under a diffusing lens for truly even output (no hotspots). Constant current design and air-cooled base for superior reliability. Features dual contact pins and nonpolar function for easy installation.

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.

SMD12 Board: Also an LED panel, with 12 SMD chips. Due to the increased size, this may need to be mounted to the exterior of the trunk light housing.

Fitment. All bulbs use a quality inject-molded 194/168 T10 terminal, with a full-size base connector and proper pin alignment, designed for exact replacement of your factory 194 bulb. Just remove the old bulb, and plug in the new LED.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS.


COLOR

These LEDs are available in crisp, bright colors including White, Warm White, Blue, Red, Amber, and Green.

 We strongly recommend white or warm white for maximum visibility.

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: 

SMD2: Slightly lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern color of LED.
HP3: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs.
HP5: Nearly triple the brightness of stock 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.

 

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, 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.

    I got the HP5 for my BRZ. It's laughable how dim the OEM bulbs are didn't light the ground at all. WIth these bulbs, you can actually see the ground and looks great when you open the doors, very luxurious. Another great product from Diode Dynamics. (Posted on 10/11/16)

    HP5 Natural White LEDs make all the difference. The weak little stock incandescents were useless. With these the door lights illuminate where you're about to step down, plus helping passing cyclists notice you've opened your door. (Of course you looked first, anyway, didn't you? :) (Posted on 10/9/16)

    Price

    I purchased the blue SMD12 boards, because I wanted something unique and flashy. They were a bit tough to install. I had to make some simple modifications to the light housing to make room for the boards, which won't quite fit behind the lens otherwise. I'm extremely happy with the results, though. Amazing quality as usual, and makes for a great conversation-starter when I get out of my car at night. (Posted on 7/4/16)

    Quality

    My BRZ Limited came with incandescent puddle/courtesy lights. Such a great idea, but poorly executed by Subaru. They hardly illuminated anything. With the proper color and brightness DD leds installed, all is right with the world. I could not be happier.
    My recommendation is the HP3 6000k. Looks great against the WR Blue. This item is a must have. (Posted on 2/6/15)

  16. HP3 - seems bright enough to me! Review by kTechMN
    Value
    Quality
    Price

    Installed the red HP3 level lights in my doors, and I really like how they look. Perhaps slightly less illuminating than the stock bulbs just because they're red (I'd imagine the cool or warm white bulbs of the same strength would be a noticeable improvement over stock), but they're still plenty useful and I prefer the red to the stock white. Installation was easy, just be careful prying the light housing out and taking it apart, it's a bit tricky if you've never done it before. (Posted on 11/16/14)

    Ordered the red stage 2 (HP3) LED's for my doors and love the way it looks, matches the tail lights when viewing from the rear. Since the cool white Stage 2 Dome LED provides plenty of light on the ground with the door opened, I wasn't worried about losing light by going with red. Easy to install (Posted on 11/1/14)

    I ordered the SMD5 in Cool White to go along with the dome light and the trunk light. These are about the same brightness as the stock bulbs. Prying open the light housings on the doors were easy, but it took me a while to remove the light bulbs from the plastic housings. It'll definitely be easier if you have a sharp prying tool.

  21. Amazing LED for an Amazing Value! Review by Brze66

    Value
    Quality

    These LEDs are so much better than the OEM bulbs. The OEM bulbs had a dingy, yellow color, but the new LEDs have a crisp, white color that lights up the ground outside the door 100 times better. The install is relatively easy because all you have to do is remove the light housing for the door and switch out the bulbs. The quality is top notch and adds a brand new look and feel to your vehicle. I am very satisfied with these lights and definitely recommend them to anyone looking to add that special touch to their interior lighting. (Posted on 8/31/14)

  23. Cool Upgrade Review by MikeBRZ

    Value
    Quality

    These lights certainly aren't the most essential to upgrade from stock lights, and I didn't notice too drastic of an improvement in brightness (although I like the white light much better than yellow light). However, they are an unexpectedly pleasant surprise whenever I open my doors. To increase their effect, I would order the highest brightness next time (I currently have the middle level), just because they are a cool addition. They are a bit pricy for such an unnecessary addition, but I still would recommend them. (Posted on 6/16/14)

    Although I'm not sure how useful the door light is, the LED bulbs add a touch of "cool" to the car. I purchased the "cool white" bulbs, and they upgrade the character of the vehicle, without completely changing its character. OEM fit in the bulb holder. I'd purchase these again in a heartbeat.

    Quality

    Stage 2 LEDs really improve visibility of the leading edge of the door and the ground around it. Also like the other reviewer said, the light fully fills the housing so when putting the cover back on you should take care to evening apply pressure to it and slip it in evenly. You will see what I mean when you install your lights. Nothing difficult. (Posted on 10/31/13)
