Guessing I say,
Heated Element - Defrost, like rear window
Auto Dim - light reactive tint, like some glasses
Folding - folds in when ignition is turned off

Might be able to get motors from import Skylines ..... and Silvias for that matter ... they have them standard ... if you are cluey enough you could hook them up to fold in when the ignition is turned off.

mirror heating ... usually only seen in Euro cars due to cold weather ... also Lexus LS400 (and newer) might have these along with power folding mirrors ... just use the internals from the mirror.

Happy hunting and fiddling,

Jeez, hope this goes well; I really like to implement auto fold in mirrors.
Also like the way the mirror drops down to gutter level on the newer cars when reversing on onr mirror..
Heating wouldnt be an issure for myself, but why not hey LOL :lol:
Hardest part would be to get the thing on there n one that fits properly i rekon.
