The Diode Dynamics LED upgrade for your
License Plate Bulbs in the FRS and BRZ really brighten things up!
License plate bulbs are used to illuminate the rear license plate on
your vehicle. From the factory, the bulbs are incandescent, lighting up
in a yellowish color.
Newer luxury cars use LED modules to illuminate the license plate with
modern, cool white light. By changing your license plate bulbs to LED,
you can easily add this luxury look to your vehicle!
The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulb.
With low price and easy install, this is one of the best, easiest
modifications you can do to improve how your car looks at night.
your order is TWO BULBS.
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:
lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern
color of LED.
higher brightness than OEM bulbs.
brighter than OEM bulbs. These are bright!
triple the brightness of stock OEM bulbs!
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
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.
LED Quality and Construction:
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, 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
Diode Dynamics bulbs are produced with modern, computerized equipment,
and only the best materials, to ensure complete uniformity, high
quality, and long bulb life.
