Were power folding mirrors ever an option on pre-facelift UK cars?

Pretty sure the answer is no. It's certainly not mentioned in my owners manual.

I have a feeling the folding mirrors only appeared in the final versions where the mirrors changed to the rounded ones

The problem is I have Japanese one with factory folding mirrors and one of them is broken.

Broken? As in doesn't fold anymore? Check for broken wires in the pivot area.

The gear teeth are stripped. Someone pushed manually and wrecked it
