Subaru Legacy License Plate LEDs! Plug & Play Install! See Comparison Photos!

License plate bulbs are used to illuminate the rear license plate on your Legacy. 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 Legacy!

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 XV looks at night.

Diode Dynamics offers several bulb options so you can choose what fits you best. These options are listed by the design and the lumen output of each bulb:

SMD2: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs. (24 lumens)
HP3: Much brighter than OEM bulbs. These are bright! (56 lumens)
HP5: Nearly triple the brightness of stock OEM bulbs! (92 lumens)

Bulb Design

SMD2: Similarly compact design, with two 5050-size Epistar SMD chips, driven at high power for maximum effective brightness. Outputs at 180 degrees.

HP3: One high-power SMD under a diffusing lens for truly even output (no hotspots). Constant current design and air-cooled base for superior reliability. Features dual contact pins and nonpolar function for easy installation.

HP5: Four high-power SMDs, under a diffusing lens. Just like the HP3, but run at higher power, with integrated copper plating for superior heat dissipation, allowing maximum brightness.

These bulbs are made up of a quality plastic connector to slide right into the plug, as well as high durability terminals. A load resistor is embedded to prevent blowing the LEDs from voltage surge, and a diode is implanted to protect the LEDs from reverse polarity. The LED is wired for 12V operation, the kind found on all vehicles.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS (to fit your Legacy).

All of our products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year limited warranty.

Are these small enough to mail in an envelope to avoid duties and extra 'handling fees' from couriers?

If so, sign me up!

Diode Dynamics 10-17-2011 01:06 PM

Yes, they are mailed in a small bubble mailer. You will not incur any fees, and international shipping is very inexpensive. You can place an order by clicking the links above. Thanks!

PO placed for "full" LED package for my Legacy- not just licence plate lights. Feel free to apply any discounts that you want.;)

Thanks Paul!

Def need to order me some of those license plate lights. The board with 12 led's will work for the dome light? I think its a festoon base.

Diode Dynamics 10-17-2011 07:45 PM

That's correct- it will come with the correct adapter to fit perfectly in your car.

SubaruTim 10-17-2011 07:51 PM

Awesome, i'll be placing an order tonight. Thanks!

Diode Dynamics 10-17-2011 07:51 PM

Sounds good, it will be shipped tomorrow! :)

SubaruTim 10-21-2011 03:24 PM

Hey Paul, I placed an order with you guys for the 12LED dome light but the attatchment that came with it was for a 194 base and I need the festoon base.
