Lexus IS Interior LED





At Diode Dynamics, we carry a full line of LED bulbs, to replace your Lexus IS dome lights, license plate lights, trunk light, turn signals, and more!

We carry the brightest, highest-quality bulbs at the lowest prices. Your order will ship same day, and we're here if you need us for support and service. These LED bulbs are designed by us here in St. Louis, and every bulb carries with it a three-year limited warranty.

Your dome, map, and cargo lights use an incandescent bulb from the factory, giving it a yellowish color. By replacing them with an LED, you can add a luxurious and modern look to your Lexus, with a cool white color, just like the lights on newer luxury vehicles. You can also increase the brightness with SMF4 or SMD12 Board, to improve the performance of your dome light.

The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulbs!


Bulb Design:

SMF2: This bulb has a standard festoon base, with two forward-facing 5050-size Epistar SMDs. Direct replacement, plug and play.

SMF6: Standard festoon base, with six 5050-size Epistar SMD chips arranged on a rectangular panel.

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.

Brightness

SMF2: (16 lumens) Slightly lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern color of LED.
SMF6: (94 lumens) Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs.
SMD12 Board: (118 lumens) 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.


All products by Diode Dynamics are backed by a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a three-year limited warranty.

your website is messed up; I was going to order a dome light and trunk LED but I gave up out of frustration.

I put in my car: 04 IS300 and im getting all sorts of odd stuff. 01-13 high beams, 01-08 lic plate lights, lots of stuff that says its sport cross specific, etc. But there is no 01-05 for the 1IS which leads me to believe something is messed up. I think its safe to assume not everything will cross over into the 2 and 3 IS. There is also no dome light on the site like you advertise here. The link in the OP to take you to IS LEDs is dead too.

I tried searching "IS300" and nothing came up. I also tried searching for HP3 and its not abundantly clear what I need as there are 4 pages of results. I don't mind paying more for a superior product, but your website is not very confidence inspiring. For someone who knows next to nothing about LEDs, I need to be spoonfed and the website is not helping :/

My apologies for the confusion, we just launched our brand new site towards the end of 2017. Our team is still making updates to the listings and making sure all of the vehicle listings are added correctly.

If you have any questions about fitment, please feel free to give us a call: (314) 205-3033 or email: [email protected]

We are a sponsoring vendor on 150 forums, and I'm working hard to make sure every single URL for every thread is updated for the new site.

Thank you for your support and patience!

i forgot to ask, can you please post in this thread when the website has been updated/fixed? i would rather order online then via telephone (much easier that way), but im going to wait until the website is fixed.

thanks!
