License plate bulbs are used to illuminate the rear license plate on your vehicle. From the factory, the bulbs are incandescent, lighting up in a yellowish color.

Newer luxury cars use LED modules to illuminate the license plate with modern, cool white light. By changing your license plate bulbs to LED, you can easily add this luxury look to your vehicle! 

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

 With low price and easy install, this is one of the best, easiest modifications you can do to improve how your car looks at night.



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.


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 license plate applications- the other colors are illegal in most areas. Please check your local laws before ordering.

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.



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. Great Review by Jatniel

    Better and brighter than stock one obviously. Love them. (Posted on 1/26/17)

  2. Bright Review by Tom

    Everyone can now read my Prestige Tag DOUZME On my 2004 Nissan 350Z One bad thing I can't take a photo of it due to the fact that it is so bright :-)) (Posted on 7/11/16)

  3. Great Review by Mongo

    I got the hp5 and these things are bright best light I have gotten for my 350z. (Posted on 1/2/16)

  4. Clean Installation, No hassle, Excellent Value Review by blanqshot

    Getting to the License Plate LED was easy. It was my first time changing out the License Plate Bulbs and my right side was already blown out. Thank God Diode Dynamics ships in a pair so I dont have to double order, installed the bulbs by simply switching out the bulbs and from there that was it. I bought the Level 2 LED bulbs and they look fantastic for my Trunk LED. Highly recommend for those who want an attention-to-detail look for the rear of the car. WIth this installed I might consider the taillights as well. Fantastic! (Posted on 9/25/14)

  5. Amazing Review by Vic

    I got the stage 2 bulb and it was very easy to install. These lights really compliment the rear of the 350z. (Posted on 8/19/14)

  6. Great! Review by Marius

    I got the stage two ones and they are not too bright or too dim! Color is awesome and they do not flicker. Had them for a few months now and they work perfectly!
    Would definitely recommend ! (Posted on 4/13/14)

  7. Nice and easy customization Review by Pete

    I got stage 2. Easy to install, nice quality, good bright white light. In retrospect, I think I wish I had gone stage 3...Not because the 2 isn't bright, but having a black car, tinted license plate cover, and dingy (despite cleaning) light covers, it doesn't look as bright and pretty as the picture. But that being said, there is definitely a difference, it takes 5 minutes to install, and these are pretty dirt cheap. You can't afford not to do it! (Posted on 1/15/14)

  8. Great product at a great price! Review by Slyguy

    Easy to order from DD. Shipping was fast. The packaging was first class and the bulbs fit/work perfectly. I'm very impressed and will replace all incandescent bulbs on my 350Z with Diode Dynamics LED replacement ones.

    Adding LED license plate lights really accents the LED tail lights on my 350Z. (Posted on 9/13/13)

  9. Absolutely Perfect Review by 808Z

    I ordered the stage 1 license plate lights, and I have to say I love them. They're the perfect white color and same brightness as the stocks because I don't want cops to see my plates too easy when I have one of those lead foot moments. Overall, I'm extremely pleased with the new look and would recomend these to anyone looking for license LEDs! (Posted on 7/9/13)

  10. Great LEDs Review by Ryan Shultz

    Easy to install, very bright, makes any vehicle look more expensive and cleaner. Couldn't be happier! (Posted on 6/18/13)

  11. Great product...ordering more Review by @dopepics

    Worked great on my to grab a set for a friends Z (Posted on 3/19/13)

  12. Second set. Review by Shyun

    Liked it so much I got another set!
    The white on these led's is simply perfect.
    A lot of compliments thus far. (Posted on 3/15/13)

  13. Stage 1 is a nice upgrade from stock bulbs Review by 07 Enthusiast

    I purchased white stage 1 bulbs to update the lighting on my licence plate. Install was a breeze. The bulbs give a cool high-tech look that should have come stock with the 06-08 LED Tail lights. This really pulls the rear end around when the parking/headlamps are on. Stage 1 is plenty bright to illuminate the plate and complete the tail lighting.

    Now I Need the LED turn signals. (Posted on 2/5/13)

  14. Great Product Review by Edward

    I installed these lights in a matter of 2 minutes. What a world of difference from the normal 194 bulbs. I got the stage 1's and they look exactly the same has the ones on MB, and BMWs. Highly recommend these. (Posted on 2/1/13)

  15. GREAT Review by Shyun

    Pretty awesome.
    Not much to say about them.
    They do the job.
    Will need to check back in about longevity but should not be a problem with DD. (Posted on 1/15/13)

  16. Great subtle change! Stage 2 Review by JD

    I got stage 2 and these were great. Not too bright, but bright enough to see on the floor. Will post a picture if allowed. (Posted on 12/3/12)

  17. Excellent price, value, and quality product. Review by JD

    I ordered the stage 1 tag lights for my fiancé's 06 350Z. I was hoping to get the 'Audi/BMW/Lexus' LED tag light look, and the stage 1 tag lights gave me exactly that! They were a breeze to install, shipping was fast, and you cannot beat the price for quality LED lights. Now, I'm just hoping that they will last awhile without burning out...only time will tell! So far, I am 200% happy with this purchase. (Posted on 9/4/12)

  18. With the price of these bulbs every one should have a set Review by Realist alive

    Great product, easy to install, very bright light that shines on pavement, for $5 great deal (Posted on 8/6/12)


Level of Difficulty: 1/10

Just unplug your factory bulb, and replace it with the new LED one. It is a direct replacement for your vehicle.

Accessing the bulb itself is quite easy. Usually, it is held in by two tabs, and you can pop it out from the outside of the vehicle. In some cases, you will need to remove a few screws, which are clearly visible. Finally, it may be held by clips from the inside, accessible when you open the hatch or trunk.

If it does not work the first time, try flipping it around in the socket, as all LEDs require the correct polarity.
