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. Very good! Review by Cameron

    Best map lights in the business. Cant believe how much cooler the interior of my car now looks! And for the price, you cant beat it (Posted on 9/5/17)

  2. nice upgrade Review by lolo_nemo

    Bought the SMF6 94 lumens cool white . Pure plug & play. Huge difference from stock. Lights up the interior like day time. (Posted on 9/26/15)

  3. great look Review by Ken

    sooo much fresher than the stock yellow ones ...

    i suggest you take the second brightest, which i have, they're bright enough and not blinding.. (Posted on 9/10/15)

  4. Excellent LED Brightness, No Hassle Installation Review by blanqshot

    I bought the Level 2 LED White version for this product. The color and the amount of brightness was perfect. I recommend to anybody for this product. The easy way to get to the Map Lights was to use the LED KIT tool provided by Diode Dynamics (got mines for free with the order, I assume you have to go over a certain price point) and just nudge under the middle bottom/top portion of the Map Lights to remove the whole dongle and work it from there. I highly recommend this product, a simple swap with bulbs and your done. (Posted on 9/25/14)

  5. STAGE 2 Review by MIKE D

    Easy install, once the plastic lens is popped off from the hinge-side. No mods needed, just remove old bulbs. The L.E.D.'s fit perfectly. Nice white flouresent look. Brighter than stock, not blinding. Highly reccommend. (Posted on 9/22/14)

  6. Beacon of light Review by Vic

    Very easy to install, and makes the 350z stand out when the lights come on. The stage 2 lights are the perfect amount of brightness, and are not blinding. (Posted on 8/19/14)

  7. Works great in the Roadster Review by Slyguy

    I was looking for some brighter lights for my '06 350Z Roadster. I'd already bought the LED license plate lights that work really well so I shopped diode dynamics again. Great price, fast delivery super easy to install and they work fantastic. Clear, white and bright light. I recommend them to everyone! (Posted on 1/24/14)

  8. Great easy installation although some modification was needed Review by Vegas350zr

    When installing on a roadster you have to remove the black piece attached to the clear part it's like a mini projector for the halogen bulb, upon removal you need to lay the board where the sticky side presses against the light switch, simple just used a flat head and pried it off. (Posted on 1/10/14)

  9. Well worth it. An inexpensive but great mod Review by Mike

    Just installed this on my 350z. I purchased the stage 3 red led map lights. It LITERALLY took 5 minutes to replace both map lights. Very simple and the lights turned out AWESOME. stage 3 for red is what you want since it is bright enough to light up the entire interior but doesnt blind you. (Posted on 10/25/13)

  10. Fantastic Review by Dan

    This is a great product at a very reasonable price. I completely enjoy the brightness and clarity offered by these lights. (Posted on 7/14/13)

  11. Love my stage 2 set Review by 808Z

    I highly recommend the stage 2 set. These definitely make the interior look great and are easy on the eyes. In my opinion, these are the best because they're definitely brighter than the stock bulbs, but not so bright that it blinding. Overall, I'm pleased with the look inside and from outside the car! (Posted on 7/9/13)

  12. Best map lights I've ever had Review by Ryan Shultz

    These leds are so easy to install and will amaze all of your friends. Lights up very bright and looks amazing! A must have! (Posted on 6/18/13)

  13. Map lights befitting a high tech coupe. Review by 07 Enthusiast

    I just installed these in my 07 350z. Install was a breeze (instructions for removing map light cover are in the maintenance section of the 350z owners manual). These white stage one lights are just as bright as stock but have the modern look and focus of LEDs. I'm happy with stage one, but agree with other reviews that you could go brighter without concern for being blinded. I'm thrilled with the product. Hard to beat this kind of impact on the car for this price/ease of effort. (Posted on 2/5/13)

  14. Great Review by Shyun

    Pretty awesome.
    Install was easy and straight forward.
    I got the stage 2 ones.
    To those reading this, spend the extra bit for the stage 3.
    I wish I did and I'm sure it's well worth it. (Posted on 1/15/13)
