Pontiac G8 License Plate LEDs! Plug & Play Install! Same day Shipping! Upgrade Today!



Pontiac G8 License Plate LEDs


License plate bulbs are used to illuminate the rear license plate on your G8. 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 G8!

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 G8 looks at night.

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:

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: 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 G8).

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

We are always implementing the newest technologies into our products, but OLED is still a few years away from aftermarket applications IMO.

I haven't had good luck with these LEDs. I think it was the HP3s that I ordered a few sets of for my G8 and the wife's minivan around Thanksgiving '15. They lasted a couple months in the G8 before flickering. I got a few warranty replacements that started flickering as well. I replaced them with Sylvania LEDs that are doing well. The set in the van had been fine until this last Christmas and they both started flickering at the same time. I got a cheap pack of 10 off ebay that so far are working fine, but we'll see.

I've got other DD bulbs like switchbacks for the front and I think some backup bulbs and I really like those!

I'm terribly sorry to hear about your luck with the HP3's. I'd be happy to replace them with an upgraded set of HP5's!

Shoot me a PM!
