Pontiac Solstice License Plate LEDs


License plate bulbs are used to illuminate the rear license plate on your Solstice. 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' LED replacements, you can easily add this luxury look to your Pontiac Solstice!

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 Solstice looks at night.

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

Brightness:

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 Pontiac Solstice).

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

These are pretty cool. I see you have HID kits for the Solstice...I'm pretty sure the Sky lights are different enough that they won't work with our Sky's. Wish that wasn't the case.

We have products available to replace nearly every standard bulb offered today, especially for domestic vehicles

If you send an email to: [email protected] or call: (314) 205-3033

We can definitely help you with replacement lighting for your Sky

I imagine the Solstice and Sky share pretty much all of the same lighting. The license plate lights are probably the same as most vehicles use a 194 bulb (few small exceptions) :thumbs:

I know that when tweaking / dressing up / tuning your car the most important thing is that the owner likes it and one should never ask "why". if it makes him happy that is good enough reason.

Well, I will still ask the question.. . . why . . . . . would you want your license plate to be better visible ?

The factory license plate lights are a dull, boring incandescent yellow. Replacing them with cool white LEDs provides a much cleaner and modern appearance.

We offer a variety of bulb models with different levels of output, so you can pick the level of output you prefer.

If you aren't doing anything illegal in your car, you won't have to worry about your license plate's visibility anyway lol.

I see you have the information here in this particular post, but I think it would also be helpful if your website listed how many lumens the OEM style incandescent bulbs are so you can easily compare your LED light output to what you have now in the stock bulb. I didn't see it anyway, maybe I missed it. Just a suggestion. Thanks for supporting our cars.

We are in the process of a major update to our site. Our development team has been working hard to compile detailed technical specifications for every bulb model we offer, and we will be adding more stock lumen output measurements.

It's difficult to provide real-world information for incandescent bulbs, because they will gradually lose output over time as the filament is worn away.

Osram-Sylvania was recently hit with a $30 million lawsuit for misleading customers by saying their products were x% brighter than the factory bulbs without explaining that the factory bulbs must be used over a significant period of time.

Anywho (lol), we are planning on having a Solstice in our studio at some point in the near future for product comparison shots and development.

In the meantime, feel free to contact us if you have any questions about fitment or lighting in general

Thanks!

Ha! I was thinking the same thing... I'd rather my license plate be harder to read, personally :wink: (no offense to DD as it looks like a very nice product)

We have a variety of bulb models depending on how much light output you are looking for.

Having a visible plate gives LEO one less reason to pull you over FWIW
