Trunk Light LED for 2008-2013 Subaru WRX STi
Trunk lights are used in the trunk or cargo area to illuminate the space at night. From the factory, the bulbs are incandescant, lighting up in a yellowish color.
By changing the factory bulb to an LED, you can illuminate the area with a much brighter light, and add a pure white, luxury look.
The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulb.
SMD12 Board: Also an LED panel, with 12 SMD chips. Due to the increased size, this may need to be mounted to the exterior of the trunk light housing.
FlexLight: This is a 20-inch, low-profile LED strip, with 30 5050-size Epistar SMD chips, with adapters for universal installation. Mounts in your trunk area, flexible and waterproof, for maximum brightness.
PLEASE NOTE: SMD12 Board is an LED board, which may mount to the exterior of your trunk light housing. FlexLight is an LED strip, which plugs into your factory trunk light socket, and mounts directly into your trunk area using included adhesive strips or velcro. We offer the Boards and FlexLight for those who want to maximize brightness.
Included in your order is ONE BULB.
These LEDs are available in crisp, bright colors including White, Warm White, Blue, Red, Amber, and Green.
We strongly recommend white or warm white for the best visibility.
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:
SMD12 Board: Much brighter than OEM bulbs. These are bright!
FlexLight: Extremely bright compared to OEM bulb.
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. Please click here to learn more about LED brightness measurement.
