Yes , mine does , but it's Euro-spec , my friend's 05 US-Spec doens't have it.

edit : just asked another friend who has 01 Us-Spec , no it doesnt have it , seems like US-Spec M3's didn't come with it .

I dont think so... If i remember correctly he said he just bought the motor from the m5 mirror or something? wasnt hard either, hes a retard and he did it himself so it couldnt be that hard lol

I have them on my US M3. Yes, it does cost a small fortune and no you dont have to go to the dealer to get it programmed.

Figure almost 400 a mirror, unpainted. Then you have to buy a 40 dollar mirror switch. I did the install myself, wasnt too difficult. You can also buy the m3 style mirrors that have autofold for around 200. Paint cost me 200, since I had it done at the stealership.

I think theres a lot of threads on this... WHat my understanding from some minimal research is that, the US M3 has folding mirrors. Not Auto Fold, but to make it auto fold you would need to buy the Motorized mirrors and a switch. Am I right about this or is this incorrect? I would like to do this mod sometime
