Arrow MR2 Reverse/Backup LED Bulbs! Several Model Options, Ships Same-Day! Plug & Play!



Toyota MR2 Reverse Light LED

At Diode Dynamics, we carry a full line of LED bulbs, including three different levels of brightness for your MR2's reverse light or backup light bulb (7440/3 size). We carry the brightest, highest-quality bulbs on the market, which we have designed in St. Louis, Missouri. Your order will ship same day, and we're here if you need us for support and service. Every bulb carries with it a three-year limited warranty.



Bulb Design


HP11: Four side-firing 1.5W-rated Osram LED chips, and one 5W-rated LED chip on top, which is projected by a lens for maximum effective brightness. The bulb is housed in a machined aluminum casing, which provides superior heat diffusion for long life.

XP80: Each of the four sides of this bulb contains three 5W-rated chips, and the top is fitted with four more under a projector lens. This is the brightest self-contained automotive LED bulb on the market, and is housed in an aluminum casing with a textured finish for maximum heatsinking properties.

Fitment. All three bulbs use a quality inject-molded 7440 terminal, with a locking base connector and proper pin alignment, designed for exact replacement of your factory 7440 bulb.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS.


COLOR

These LEDs illuminate in a crisp, cool, bright, white hue for maximum light output.

BRIGHTNESS

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:

HP11: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs. (310 lumens)
XP80: Much brighter than OEM bulbs. These are bright! (510 lumens)

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.


QUALITY

LED Components. Diode Dynamics uses only the highest quality LED chips in the production of its bulbs. This means only brand-name suppliers such as Epistar, Cree, Osram, and Samsung.

While Diode Dynamics bulbs may look the same as others on the market, most copycat bulbs use economy-grade LED chips in order to reduce costs. This greatly reduces the reliability and overall brightness of the bulb when you compare it to Diode Dynamics.

Construction.
Although LED technology allows for extremely long bulb life, the market is flooded with cheap LED bulbs that fail prematurely due to inferior construction. The worst enemy of LEDs is excessive heat, and when bulbs are not designed properly, they do not disperse heat as well, leading to premature failure.

Off-brand, cheap bulbs exhibit poor solder uniformity, high levels of flux in the solder, uneven chip placement, low-gauge terminal wires, poor assembly, and bulbs held together with inferior adhesives. At best, solder joints will crack and fail on low-quality LEDs after a few weeks of use. In the worst case, these bulbs can damage housings as the extra flux and adhesive evaporates and creates a residue on the lens of the housing.

Diode Dynamics bulbs are produced with modern, computerized equipment, and only the best materials, to ensure complete uniformity, high quality, and long bulb life.

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

We haven't had an MR2 in our studio yet sadly, still looking for one here in St. Louis to bring into our studio for installation videos and comparison pictures. It's not easy to find a clean, all-original one here in St. Louis.

We haven't had an MKII in the studio for comparison photos, but if you email us: [email protected] we can provide you with size information

Thanks!

Heya Nick, I'll be happy to do some before/after pics of the cluster install once I receive the order from you guys. I was more so inquiring about a list of your LED's that will work for the MR2's, so me and others on board will know which type of lights are available to order from you. If I knew the reverse lights were an option, I would have ordered it

Got plug and play bulbs for the tail light bulbs?

Heya, I'm thinking about upgrading my turn signals and rear tails all to LED, I understand that LED flashers or resistors are required to make them flash at the proper rate. Do you guys carry the flashers?

Hello!

Thank you for asking

You won't need to replace the flasher or add resistors for tail lights, but any turn location that you replace with LED will need the resistors or flasher.

Depending on model year, your MR2 should use a CF14 (EP35) flasher, which we have available in an LED-spec unit.

Thanks for that info. Where does the flasher install into?

Typically they are located under the driver's side footwell area. If you listen closely for the mechanical "click" when your turn signals are on, that will help you locate it.

Thanks!
