    LightbulbSubaru XV Crosstrek License Plate LEDs! Plug & Play Install! See Installed Pics!



    Subaru XV Crosstrek License Plate LEDs




    License plate bulbs are used to illuminate the rear license plate on your Subaru XV. 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 Diode Dynamics' LEDs, you can easily add this luxury look to your Subaru XV Crosstrek!

    The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulb. (Installation Video Available)

    With low price and easy install, this is one of the best, easiest modifications you can do to improve how your Subaru XV Crosstrek 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 stock OEM bulbs! (92 lumens)

    *HP3/HP5 are available in warm white, 4000K, 5000K, 6000K Cool White Color temperatures

    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 Subaru XV Crosstrek).

    Diode Dynamics products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year limited warranty.

    That's smart! I'll let the stop light cameras see the plate clearer!

    Shouldn't be a concern if you aren't breaking the law

    No problem with running it. It's the questionable ones that keeps me up at night.

    How much dimmer are the smd1 bulbs? I'm having a hard time choosing between the smd1 and smd2 bulbs. I don't like super bright bulbs that obnoxiously light up the ground behind the car like reverse lights.

    I would go with the SMD2's over the SMD1's, but they are inexpensive and ship free so you might even try both?

    Feel free to give us a call for more opinions: (314) 205-3033

    We will have XV Comparison photos in early 2015 (working on it!)
