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. I can see! Review by Wombat

    No more grouping around to find stuff! I love my LEDs! They are not only bright, they add a touch of modern luxury. I will never use old fashioned bulbs again. (Posted on 2/18/17)

  2. Worth The Upgrade Review by Bryan

    I did both map lights with the cool white/94 lumens bulbs. The factory bulbs did not cut it. These are plenty bright. I can turn on the passenger side only to get good general lighting or the driver side if I am actually needing to look at something when it is dark. Using both will give exceptional interior lighting over factory. (Posted on 2/13/17)

  3. Very useful Review by Gunnar

    Finally can see everything in the front seat and by my feet! Great product (Posted on 1/21/17)

  4. Red & White combo Review by EteT

    Bought red and cool white map light for my '14 Crosstrek. With the black interior, the red is perfect for seeing things while driving without the distraction. Use the white on PAX side for when a flood light. Great paring. Easy to install, fast shipping...definitely glad I found Diode Dynamics. (Posted on 12/6/16)

  5. Love the new look Review by Jim

    Switching to the cool white really changes the look of the interior at night. Chose the SM2s to make sure I didn't blind myself. Good choice for me, As bright as the originals, just look better with the cool white. (Posted on 11/29/16)

  6. Easy to install, awesome to own Review by Ryan

    These are fantastic, and are a simple upgrade. I am not overly "handy" when it comes to car modifications, and with a small cheap flathead screwdriver, I was able to install these maplights. The light is better, brighter, and overall way cooler than the stock bulb. Really, this is a no-brainer of a purchase. (Posted on 10/28/16)

  7. Look great and easy install Review by Adam

    Originally bought the Cool White for our new 2016, but the wifey thought it looked like a space ship : /. The return was super easy, and I got the warm white. Super easy install, I just used a butter knife and the panel popped right out. Had to spread the two tabs a bit to fit the SMF6. Looks great! (Posted on 9/13/16)

  8. Blue and Cool White SMF2 Review by Bobby Ack

    I ordered a pair of each color and used the blue for a while before switching the driver side to the white for better visibility when searching for items in my car. I left the passenger side blue, which I think leaves a cool touch with the two different lights up front. The cool white SMF2 is absolutely bright enough to see most of the area without overpowering your eyes. The blue SMF2 is also a decent brightness but you might want to get a brighter version if you want to use it for more than just "looks". (Posted on 9/13/16)

  9. Great Upgrade! Review by Jose

    Replaced my interior lights with the SMF6 Cool White (6000K) light. It was so easy to do, taking me only about 5 minutes to do all 3 (dome & 2 maps). The inside of the car now looks drastically different (in a great way). There is so much more light and the color looks great (even making the interior materials just seem nicer).

    Note: I'd say the SMF6 may be borderline too bright for some individuals. I myself like all things bright and they are the perfect amount (not overpowering while driving and a massive improvement when looking for stuff in the car at night). (Posted on 8/10/16)

  10. map light city Review by Rommel

    Picked up a 2016 crosstrek, and the interior lighting was a bit of a let down. Looked online for some led bulbs and ultimately ended up here at diodedynamics. Pricing was on point and the site is easy to navigate. map light replacement is awesome at 6000k. Visibility has improved 3x over. Installation was a breeze once i figured out how to pop the lenses off. Watch YouTube vids to save you time. Bulbs are a smidge bigger then the stock bulbs but a little leverage makes them pop in. Overall, illuminated awesomeness. tip - Buy all your interior lights at the same time. (Posted on 7/15/16)

  11. Map Lights Review by Aly

    These lights are way brighter than the factory bulbs and really change the appearance of the car. They are super easy to install and the quality is great. (Posted on 4/4/16)

  12. Excellent product Review by binmeow

    These map lights are absolutely perfect! Came in the mail in the expected days of shipment. Installation is very user friendly, even people whom are not too familiar with cars would find installation very easy with its simple plug and play. Lights up great too! Cockpit has never been brighter and for such a low price too. Definitely recommend Diode Dynamics for everyone. (Posted on 3/14/16)

  13. Bright. Review by Cameron

    Bought the SMF2 6000K bulbs for my '15 Crosstrek. The stock bulbs were basically useless. The Diode Dynamics SMF2 produce a much cleaner, more usable light in the cabin. The lights still fade on and off just like the factory bulbs. (Posted on 11/17/15)

  14. Powerful! Review by Oscar Rivera

    I bought these for my XV and they are amazing, giving the car interior a modern and much more iluminated look. The installation, however, is not as easy as it seems, so you have to be very careful. (Posted on 10/11/15)

  15. Love it Review by AndyRoo

    Classy look, bright as hell, clean. After getting these I ordered replacement LEDs for the entire car! (Posted on 9/5/15)

  16. Supernova bright Review by k2frisch

    I bought the smf6 light and man are these lights bright. They are almost too bright when driving down the road and you turn these one. Great replacement over the stock lights! (Posted on 8/23/15)

  17. Things happen..... But Review by Alan

    Ordered a pair of RED SMF6 Map Light Bulbs. Went to install them.... 1st Bulb... Looks Great. 2nd Bulb... 3 of the 6 LED's didn't light... Manufacturing problem? Did it happen during shipping?

    In my eyes... Doesn't matter, went online to do an RMA. Within 24 hrs. I received confirmation that my RMA has been processed and a New Bulb shipped.

    Like my caption states "Things happen". But with customer service like this. Makes you feel good finding a company that backs their product this well. (Posted on 6/17/15)
