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. Great Lights Review by Steven

    Bought the SMF2 for my 2015 Legacy 2.5 Limited.

    Much more crisp and modern look inside with these lights. The light output is much better as well than the stock bulbs. Installation was a breeze as well! (Posted on 9/9/17)

  2. looks more modern Review by Steve

    I have the whole interior of my wagon finished with led's.
    I get complements on the cool white color, also if you have aproblem with a led they take of it asap. (Posted on 3/6/17)

  3. Nice and bright Review by Sabrina

    These have good color and brightness. They are a tad large but just spread connection tabs a little and they should fit. Overall couldn't be happier with these! (Posted on 2/8/17)

  4. Super easy, great product Review by Corey

    2012 Legacy 3.6R, opted for SMF2 in Cool White. Product went in easy as pie, super happy with the brightness and color. Highly recommended. (Posted on 9/20/16)

  5. A Classy Touch Review by Tim

    The higher and cleaner output of the map LEDs brings a classy and distinctive look to the interior of the car. Practically speaking, it also means that you don't have to strain to read maps. (Posted on 7/2/16)

  6. Lots of whoa! Review by Kenneth

    Had some trouble gettin the connection to work but once it was in, well don't look directly at the light! Fantastic and bright lighting. I can see everything in my floor too. I have the dome upgrade too. Hardly use these thanks to that though (Posted on 11/30/15)

  7. excellent value Review by DanC

    I replaced the OEM bulbs with SMF6 in red. The LEDs are about 1/16th of an inch longer than the stock bulbs but are easy enough to put in. The light from the LEDs is much better than the output from the stock bulbs. (Posted on 11/11/15)

  8. Very Bright LEDs Review by Spencer

    Cool White (6000K) SMF6 (94 Lumens).
    Awesome LEDs, very bright, and looks great. (Posted on 5/21/15)

  9. A must have! Review by Scott

    I ordered a pair of cool white SMF6 map lights for my 2014 Subaru Legacy. These are a must have. The stock halogen bulbs really are disappointing to have in a new vehicle. You can barely see the floor mats with them. The SMF6 bulbs are super bright and give off a nice icy white color. Something I did not see the other reviewers mention: auto dim. The auto dim feature still works with these Diode Dynamics LED bulbs. So when you close your doors or start your vehicle they gradually dim in brightness. They do not just blink off. Great product, awesome customer service, and super fast shipping! (Posted on 9/22/14)

  10. 2012 Legacy LED Upgrade Review by Eric

    I just purchased and installed these in Stage 2 white. They are a DRAMATIC improvement not only in brightness but quality of light color.

    This interior light conversion takes a matter of minutes yet it had a dramatic affect on the appearance of my car. These go awesome with the other stage 2 lighting I got in the Dome light, vanity lights, and door lights.

    I highly recommend these for those of you who are looking for a quick, cheap, and easy way to improve the appearance of your car. (Posted on 3/2/14)

  11. Great bang for your buck. Review by Stu

    I changed out my stock yellowy-white bulbs in the map lights of my 05 LGT wagon for these in red, since anytime I was driving at night on a road trip and my wife used the map light, it was aggravating for both of us. The red is fantastic, install was easy as pie, and the results are just what the doctor ordered. I MAY upgrade to the brighter ones in the future, but for now these are great. Highly recommendable (Posted on 10/20/13)

  12. Stg3 a bit pricey, but major difference in brightness Review by Steve

    Purchased the Stg3 (white) map lights as part of my 08 LGT interior revamp, and it is a tremendous, tremendous difference over stock map lights. Stg3 brightness is awesomely bright and it completely blows stock lights away. However, I will admit that for Stg3.. it is a bit pricey.

    My car's interior lights come on when you unlock it, so an added plus is being able to see your car from a considerable distance away (parking garage or lot) because of how much interior illumination there is (which is very distinctive, too). (Posted on 9/24/13)

  13. Wow Review by Charlie

    I upgraded all the lights in my interior in my 2005 Legacy GT wagon. These make a huge improvement and the plug and play aspect it great. I did modify my lights a little to get even more output but even without it was a huge improvement. (Posted on 5/24/13)

  14. Great Lights! Review by Jon

    I paired these, stage 2, with the stage 2 dome light and WOW! So much better than the stock bulbs. (Posted on 4/16/13)

  15. This is great with the dome upgrade for a full interior refresh Review by Justin

    Really happy with the output of the stage 2 LEDs, and paired with the dome light my interior has been transformed! (Posted on 11/20/12)
