    By Auto-levelling, I presume you mean Xenons, and Not Adaptive forward lighting. (AFL)

    Xenon's should be a do-able with the appropriate light clusters and ascociated cabling

    AFL's are listed as having a different part numbered / Alpha coded UEC modules (engine fuse boxes) in the Vauxhall electronic parts catalogue. So may be a bit more involved.

    AFL - adaptive forward lighting - where the lights bend to the side as you are turning.

    Auto light levelling sounds like the Xenon option.

    According to Vauxhall's technology page

    AFL makes night driving safer and less stressful by enhancing visibility through curves and sharp bends. The movable elements in the intelligent, bi-xenon headlights automatically adjust themselves to different conditions, ensuring safer and more relaxed driving. Nine different light functions make the best of every situation, improving road illumination by up to 90% – without dazzling other drivers

    Yes, AFL needs a lot of modifications in loom, costy additional (or replacement) modules, etc.

    Auto-levelling for simple xenon is easier, though you still may need to modify the loom and/or headlight (if for instance you have fitted HID bulbs in standard dual H7 headlamps), as you'll need an additional CAN bus wire to the levelling motors.

    You'll find some hints in Kenp's pre-face xenon headlights retrofitting description :
