FUNCTION

Sidemarker, corner, or indicator LED bulbs will add a nice touch to the exterior of the vehicle, by providing a true red or amber color rather than a washed-out color created by factory incandescent bulbs.

The yellowish color of the factory bulb shines through the red or amber lens to create a light yellow or orangish color. By using true red and amber LEDs, you will achieve a crisp, vibrant color.

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

BULB DESIGN

SMD2: Similarly 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.

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 of amber, red, or white. Choose the color to match your reflector- usually there is a pair of amber bulbs in the front, and a pair of red in the rear.

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 higher brightness than OEM bulbs.
HP3: Much brighter than OEM bulbs. These are bright!
HP5: Nearly triple the brightness of stock 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.

 

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.

  1. Bright and Crisp Review by Sammy

    Value

    I bought this and paired it with a JDM clear sidemarker. Now, all the lights at the front of the car match up. You do not have some ugly amber color ruining the look at the front. At night, it really lights up. I believe a 6K headlight will compliment the sidemarker perfectly. They match. (Posted on 9/6/16)

    I have smoked markers and these SMD2 24 lumens bulbs worked great. The color is a perfect amber, slightly more orange than OEM, so they pop. (Posted on 5/26/16)

    A pair of amber SMD2's behind JDM clear sidemarkers look absolutely amazing,especially if you are going the oem+ route and don't need to blind anyone perpendicular to your direction of travel. (Posted on 3/19/16)

    Base LED bulb used with a smoked helix side marker. Looks perfect! (Posted on 7/4/15)

  6. Look high quality, but not as pictured Review by Brian
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    I was really impressed with the quality of the build of these bulbs, and the light they produce is very appealing. One of the reasons I bought these is to eliminate the way the amber bulbs look inside the clear side markers for the BRZ. I saw these, the HP3s with white housings, and thought it would be perfect, but for some reason these came shipped with a yellow housing, which definitely could be seen in the clear side markers... which was a bit disappointing. Luckily I had some silver car paint on hand that I could cover the yellow up with, which makes the bulbs blend in nicely when they're off. (Posted on 5/27/15)

  7. A must for clear sidmarkers Review by Tetsu

    These LEDs will make your clear side markers pop and your greys more sinister! Cannot beat the light these throw off for this price. A much better look for the car! (Posted on 4/24/15)

  9. Clear Corner Bulbs are the Best Corner Bulbs. Review by Glowsticks

    Quality
    Price

    I matched these to a set of clear corner lenses, and it looks great. (It's Legal in Texas. :) recommend the HP3 in cool white. Looks amazing against WR Blue. The orange factory with yellow bulbs was weak and lame. With these lights installed, I had to start carrying a stick to fight off all the honeys attracted to the sweet led lights. Diode Dynamics, you rock. (Posted on 2/7/15)

  12. SMD5 Review by Alex C.
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    I ordered the SMD5 bulbs are these are slightly brighter than stock if you have the smoked side markers. I wouldn't recommend going any lower than these if you want these to be bright. Go with SMD5 and you wouldn't regret it! (Posted on 9/13/14)

  13. Won't notice much if you have amber sidemarkers with amber lights Review by Toca
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    I went the legal route and went with the Amber HP6 (highest output offered) and the quality of the LED is superb! When I removed the old light and put on the newer one, it's apparent that it's MUCH brighter output with a beautifullly solid, deep amber hue. The only downside is the Amber sidemarkers are ALREADY amber, and won't really show how much brighter the lights are. If you smoke your sidemarkers or have clear ones, these HP6s will really shine..but you won't notice much of a difference if you have the stock amber sidemarkers. (Posted on 8/16/14)

    I went with SMD2 Amber, they are about the same brightness as stock which is what I wanted. They look no different from stock behind the OEM amber housing, but with the clear housing they look awesome. (Posted on 7/26/14)

  15. Difficult to install, but Good to Match other LEDs on car Review by Michael
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    Of all the exterior light improvements on the car, these probably had the smallest impact, primarily because the yellow-orange plastic covering distorts and masks the color of the LED. Also, these lights were the trickiest to install--I felt like I was going to break the plastic casing attached to the car. Ultimately, I am glad I bought them mainly for peace of mind that all my car's lights are LED now. Still a good value for the product, and I would recommend. (Posted on 6/16/14)

    I got the stage 1. They don't show up very much more than the factory lights but for $5 I'm happy. I plan on getting clear or smoked lenses soon and then they should be a little more visible. (Posted on 5/12/14)

    I bought and installed the white stage 3 bulbs for my side markers, they have DEFINITELY improved the look of the car.

    Installed stage 2 amber with new smoked side markers on BRZ. Install of the bulbs were easy. I think with the smoked side lights I should have gone with the stage 3 to be a little brighter. But still looks excellent. (Posted on 8/12/13)

    Price

    I picked up the amber stage 2 LEDs for my sidemarkers after I replaced the stock amber housings with smoked housings. I wasn't sure how well the amber lights would show through the smoked sidemarkers, but these LEDs are absolutely wonderful. Great product, and really gives a sharp look. Highly recommend to anyone replacing the sidemarkers on their BRZ or FR-S. (Posted on 7/13/13)
