I plan on getting an extra set of head lights from ebay, for the project,

and I am getting the lights and projectors from

Self-leveling Systems and Future Headlight Technology
Most adaptive headlights systems also include a self-leveling system. Self-leveling headlights have an additional level sensor that determines if the car is tilted forward or back. For example, if a car is driving over a large bump, when the front of the car hits the bump, it lifts up. Standard headlights would briefly point up into the sky until the rear of the car moved over the bump and the car returned to a level position. You may have noticed this if a car driving behind you at night passed over a bump, such as a railroad crossing. The other car's headlights would flash briefly, as if the driver had blinked his or her high beams at you. This is actually the car's headlights temporarily pointing up and into your eyes instead of down at the road. With a self-leveling system, electric servomotors react to the level sensor and keep the headlights aimed down at the road, no matter the position of the car.
Self-leveling headlights are already required on new cars in Europe, and they're required on all U.S. cars equipped with bi-xenon headlights. Bi-xenon lights are so bright that they would blind other drivers if they didn't level themselves.
EDIT: My fiance's Audi has this feature... ITS HAWT!!!! Pretty cool when you first turn on the lights, they do a little dance up and down and left to right as they adjust! LOL

Auto Level

yep I have seen them on other cars also, While doing research about my retrofit I came across it, like the idea of not messing around with them let the servos do the work seeing they have a kit thats not to costly from Hella I figured I would do, I have also seen on others cars thats why I am looking forward to do this retro fit,

Is this the same technology Ive seen on newer cars where it sensors which direction you a turning, and the headlight angle themselves so you can see around the coming turn?
I want THAT!
