True enough. I was wrong about the brake lights...
But the indicators
are bl00dy annoying IMO. The fact that incandescant bulbs take a short time to reach full brightness means that you can actually look at them. I have the feeling that I'm probably alone on this one, but I find LED indicators really difficult and brain hurting to look at.
As for bulb lifetime/power consumption - bulbs don't cost the earth at the end of the day, but I suppose a lot of cars these days make bulbs a right PITA to change so in this respect the LED's are much better. I can't see that power consumption makes much of a difference really, on a car anyway!
