1994 S500 headlights updating, HELP!!!

Found a big stone chip on my front headlight, then I thought perhaps it's time to update them into ones with modern clear front lens and inside round projector lens? Online after market ones are not too expensive, about $400/pr or so, but am I facing a sacrifice of the self-leveling feature? Anyone did it before, and what do I have to know? Is it something I can install myself? Help!

Also if I convert the old headlights into HID Xenon (94 model did not come with them), anyone has done it and can you give some insight, please? What is the color temperature of the 2008 S-class headlights, are they 8000K, 6000K or other colors?? Please HELP! I do NOT want to get out of the REAL Mercedes taste, don't want to get out of the Mercedes color range. Anyone can help??
