I have the same lights, they do have the provision to install the auto-level motor.

I just finished installing the same single halo with LED strip from spyder too, B- quality construction at best. I currently have the stock HID bulbs in now, and I plan on installing high output LED's (55w/light) that are D2S compatible. I still like the design and hopefully the LED's will help with the strange light spread, with shadows from the HID bulb design.

One thing to note for anyone looking to install housings without the auto-leveling, is that you'll want to remove the harness under the drivers side steering column, it's found right above the OBD II wiring harness and slides right out. That way you avoid the annoying light on the dash

I believe that trying to use an LED bulb for the main projector output would only make it stranger

I wouldn't say stranger, honestly with how the LEDs are designed, it's more predictable. With HID's you have to account for the glass and outer construction of the bulb causing weird patterns. That's not the case with the LED's, since the only obstruction would be the surrounding aluminum. While it's not perfect, light throw is now acceptable to where I don't mind driving at night with these projectors. And what i've found is that the throw is so good I can see reflections (not to be confused with direct light beams) of street signs up to 800 yards out. And the cutoff for the light projection is pretty low, so the light that is hitting the street signs is just the outer edges (ambient light), to which i'm not blinding others on the road.

I have a comparison of the HID vs LED attached

LED is considerably brighter as well.
