Your dome light, or single light located in the center of the ceiling, uses an incandescent bulb from the factory, giving it a yellowish color. By replacing with an LED, you can add a luxurious and modern look to your vehicle, with a cool white color, just like the lights on newer luxury vehicles. You can also increase the brightness with SMF6 or SMD12 Board, to improve the performance of your dome light.

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 ONE BULB.


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. interior looks soooooo much better Review by Richard

    Got the map, dome and trunk leds. The whole interior lighting is so much brighter. I love the cool white.
    got the cool white 6000k SMF6 94 lumens (Posted on 2/15/17)

  2. Seeing Red - In a Good Way Review by Bryan

    I went with the SMF6 in red for the dome light. Didn't want to be splashed in bright light at night just before driving. This red is easy on the eyes at night and casts a nice red glow throughout the interior. If I need bright light, I have my upgraded map lights up front! (Posted on 2/13/17)

  3. Smf6 illuminates the car! Review by Gunnar

    I recently purchased the smf6 cool white and it was a great purchase! It completely lights up my interior and adds a nice sleek look, definelty reccomend it compared to the stock for the price. (Posted on 1/21/17)

  4. Love the white light! Review by Jim

    Didn't really need the extra light (I'm never in the back seat!), but got these so the interior lights would all match. Looks sharp and passengers thank me. (Posted on 11/29/16)

  5. Works great, not hard to install Review by Ryan

    I installed this bulb with minimal trouble -- the hardest part was getting the cover off the stock bulb with the screwdriver, but it popped right off -- just be gentle and don't force the cover off, and you'll be fine. The bulb installed seamlessly and the color is way better (I bought cool white bulbs for my dome light and my map lights). Based on the ease of install, I would def. pick up a trunk light for my Crosstrek as well. A low-cost/high-return modification! (Posted on 10/28/16)

  6. Illuminating! Review by Paul

    Really lights up the interior. Quite pleased with the quality and ease in installing. (Posted on 10/4/16)

  7. Easy return and easy install Review by Adam

    Originally bought the Cool White SMD12 board 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 SMF6 instead. Super easy install, I just used a butter knife to loosen the panel, then pop out the cover. Had to spread the two tabs a bit to fit the SMF6. Looks great! (Posted on 9/13/16)

  8. Nice modern look! 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)

  9. Well worth it Review by Leomodz

    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. Dome 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 (Posted on 7/9/16)

  10. Nice & Bright Review by william

    Really brighten up the interior very happy with this product, will order map LED's next. (Posted on 5/14/16)

  11. Great Dome Light Review by Aly

    Love that this light is super BRIGHT! Makes it much easier to gather my things at night when I get home. Easy install. Quality product. (Posted on 4/4/16)

  12. SMD12 Board Review by Robert

    So much brighter then factory, love it. very easy to install (Posted on 2/13/16)

  13. Great product! Review by Shaun

    Just installed these in my 2014 Crosstrek and what a difference they made! I go camping a lot and these light up the cabin with ease in the darkness on the woods! I highly recommend this product! (Posted on 10/24/15)

  14. Bright!!! Review by Oscar Rivera

    Simply perfect. The look is incredible, much more than those halogen bulbs. The installation, however, is not as easy as it seems and you have to be careful. (Posted on 10/11/15)

  15. Perfect Review by AndyRoo

    This replacement was light night and day. I couldn't even see the floor when vacuuming at night with the factory bulbs. This replacement is crisp, cool and much brighter! (Posted on 9/5/15)

  16. I can finally see Review by k2frisch

    These lights made a tremendous improvement in the overall visibility inside the crosstrek. I got the smf6 and they are more than bright enough. I shouldn't have any problems finding things laying around in the car now. (Posted on 8/23/15)

  17. Gives vehicle a whole New Look Review by Alan

    Have always enjoyed upgrading my vehicles. Came across Diode Dynamics, thought I'd give them a try. Glad I did. Much Brighter and Better lighting now when entering my vehicle at night.

    Definitely be ordering more for my Subaru. (Posted on 6/17/15)
