From my lighting thread trolling some of the notable things I've heard/read regarding LED's in this application are:
Wide beam pattern
Good Foreground illumination
Bulbs last a long time....obviously
Lower current draw
Less long range lighting due to no apparent hot spot down the road
Not as bright as HID alternatives, although brighter than halogen
To elaborate on why less heat is an issue comes from some user's experiences with the use of LED's in snow and ice situations. When using HID's or halogens there is some heat produced on the outer housing of the headlight which prevents ice over, however with LED's this heating action is absent or reduced. Some users have mentioned that in some cases this has been a bit of a problem. I really cant speak to how wide spread the issue is.....I have HID's....but as someone who lives in the upper Mid west this was a turn off for me. Again this is just something I've heard, but I must admit that to a point it makes sense. Someone else might be able to elaborate a bit more too.
