While they dissipate less heat, LEDs themselves are more sensitive to heat, and as a result Audi R8 headlights (not sure about others) have cooler fans, so efficiency is rather relative here. Re longevity, let's see how it works in real life, I don't think there's enough empirical evidence to support the theory yet.
