You might be able to source some BMW OEM stuff for that. Not sure if motorized folding mirrors were an option for your '01, but it might have been. I know the 5's, 7's and X5's had that as an option. Check w/ your dealer or favorite BMW parts source.
Obviously if you were able to buy a motorized mirror that fits, there has got to be some kit or collection of parts for a 3 series out there. Maybe in the later e46 model years.
