LEDs are brilliant. Aside from the obvious benefit of much reduced power consumption and the fact that you'll probably never have to worry about a failed bulb in the life of the vehicle; they're also much faster to reach full brightness than incandescents, making them much safer for brake lights, where even the fraction of a second difference in noticing the car in front is braking could make the difference.
