Question Interior lighting: Xenon bulbs vs. leds

Xenon bulbs are more OEM, right?

But are leds brighter? Especially the surface mount ones?

I heard the leds will burn out prematurely running at the 12-14V provided by the car though, so it's a good idea to solder in a resistor in series to lower the voltage across the led. Any comments?
