Lexus IS License Plate LEDs


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

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 Lexus looks at night.

Brightness:

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 the OEM bulbs. These are the brightest model we offer! (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.


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 Lexus IS).

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

On the site you show an hp5.

Is that &/or the hp3 confirmed for proper fitment if the bulbs are bigger than normal halogen bulbs?

The HP3/HP5 models are the same length and will fit nearly every license plate application

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

Thanks!

Will the HP5 fit the IS300 (sedan) license plate? There isn't much room on our vehicles. So far I have bought 3 different types of LEDs off the web and none have fit due to length. Can you confirm? You guys stated "fit nearly most applications"

The HP3 and HP5 feature a unique diffusing lens and are designed to be a direct replacement for the incandescent 194 bulbs they replace. If you have clearance issues, the lens can be removed to make them even shorter than factory incandescent bulbs.

just wanted to confirm fitment. No need to remove the extended lens or do anything different. Just plug-n-play :approve:

Recently ordered a couple pairs of these 194 HP3 bulbs in 4000K Natural White. Just installed the first pair in the front city lights and am very impressed! Have been looking for a long time to find quality LED bulbs that match the OEM 4300K HID and these are it. They are a perfect match once the HID bulbs warm up after about a minute or so. Will be replacing the licence plate bulbs with these as well shortly. Thanks for a great product, would buy again!
