Driver's Side Mirror :Auto or not?

I drive a w124 and i used to think that the driver's side in all w124s was manuallly operated . But i pried open the sidepanel covering the 3 screws for the driver's mirrror and i saw a cable connected to the mirror thru the door.

My questions :
1. does the w124 support automatic driver side mirror
2. what is the part no for such a configuration
3. where is the motor for controlling the mirror(if mine is automatic) located :in the mirror or somewhere else?
4. anybody got a pic of the center console of a car (w124) with double automatic side mirrors?

thanks all

These wires are most likely for the heated mirror element. At least if there is just two wires going into the connector like in my car.

Arrow Or...

...the wiring harness may be in place for RHD cars, English, Australian etc. It may be cheaper for the factory to just build the cars with the harness already in place. Just a guess

The later (W124) models do however have electric drivers side mirrors.
