LED all the way. CCFL is better only when you're right up on it since it's a solid ring of light instead of several separate LEDs, but that goes away by the time you're a few feet away. LEDs will be far more reliable than CCFLS and their ballasts. I don't know where you live, but CCFLs are also cold-sensitive. One time I took a road trip into freezing and below temps, and the CCFLS wouldn't light up until the car had warmed the ballasts and bulbs some. LEDs will also be much brighter overall and will fade in and out much better without flickering if you wire them to come on with your interior lights.
