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.



SMF1: This bulb has a standard festoon base, with a single 5050-size Epistar SMD. Direct replacement, plug and play.

SMF2: 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.

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 maximum visibility.

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: 

SMF1: Slightly lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern color of LED.
SMF2: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs.
SMF6: 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. SMF6 94 lumen Blue Review by Alberto

    Theses LEDs are super bright, lights up interior better than my current Ebay Blue LEDs, which i will be replacing soon. In dark areas can see surrounding area clearly when the doors are open. Fitment is a bit snug, had to slight bend back the connection on the door. (Posted on 5/22/17)

  2. Awesome addition Review by SiebelGuy

    Love the color blue these are. Perfect accent to my Legacy GT. (Posted on 4/18/17)

  3. Excellent lighting Review by Michael

    I installed these the other day in my legacy gt. The stage 2 is the perfect brightness for the door lights. Bright enough but not blinding. (Posted on 4/25/16)

  4. Great way to add extra light, good looking too Review by Matthew

    Thoroughly impressed with these door lights. Originally I went with stage 1, but they were to dim for my liking. Contacted DD and was able to switch to stage 2. Much happier, added that premium feel without the premium cost. (Posted on 10/29/14)

  5. Bright, quality bulbs! Review by Caleb

    When these bulbs arrived, I was impressed once again with the quality of these bulbs. You can tell just by the appearance that they're going to preform excellent. The issue I have with these bulbs for my 07 Legacy is that they are a little bit wider than the OEM bulbs, but they still fit nonetheless. (Posted on 2/15/14)

  6. More difference than expected Review by Stu

    I bought these for my 2005 Subaru Legacy GT Wagon to replace the stock bulbs. I like the bright white better than the factory yellowy white color, given that my car is white, and even just the stage 1 brightness throws noticeably more light when I open my doors. Very satisfied, and the install was ridiculously easy on the Legacy. Aesthetically great and improved functionality at a great price. (Posted on 10/20/13)

  7. Nice accent to the car Review by Steve

    As part of the interior LED swap, I opted for Stg3 (blue) puddle lights. While it's a bit on the pricier end, the LEDs are very bright, very blue, and provides plenty of ground illumination. Personally, I think it looks great and particularly distinctive - if DD offered a "softer" blue option (like a ~6-8k option), I think it would look even better, but to each his own. Kind of wish all 4 of my doors had puddle lights, instead of just the front 2.

    Install is a complete breeze. Take a small flathead - pop out the plastic light covers (gently work your way around the frame, as not to snap any of the plastic tabs), swap the bulb out for the LED panel, then replace. A literal 2 minute process for each door. (Posted on 9/24/13)

  8. Great output Review by Charlie

    Put in stage 3 and was blown away with the difference. Makes getting in the car safer and lets other drivers see that your door is open. Quick and easy install and great price. (Posted on 5/24/13)

  9. These are a big upgrade from the standard bulbs! Review by Justin

    These stage 2 white puddle lamps for the doors really work well! The ability to aim the beam with the more directional SMD LED truly lights up the ground below the open door. Highly recommend this upgrade! (Posted on 11/20/12)
