Can't believe my ST3 doesn't have heated wing mirrors, when it has heated windscreen and seats. Thats just daft!
Was it an optional extra? Or is there some sneaky way of activating it - dont have the user manual on me right now.

If it was an optional extra, how easy is it for me to retro-fit them?

Cheers.

The heated mirrors only operate when you use the heated screen and the temp is below freezing if i remember rightly!

Oh right, cool. I didn't have the heated windscreen on this morning, as it cleared ok with just the wipers and heater.
The wing mirrors didn't clear at all on my journey to work. I guess I'm just used to my old TT in the winter, which
heated the wing mirrors whenever the ignition was on!

Will try tonight with the heated windscreen on, cheers. If that works, I can live with that :)

Hi Mirrors work on either heated front or rear window are used and also if temp is below certain they will come on auto with both screens

Heated mirrors work when the REAR screen is switched on they are NOT automatic

Well had heated 'front' screen on all the way home, touched wing mirrors when got home stone cold.
On way to work tomorrow I'll try heated 'rear' screen instead. Gotta love the ST!

As mentioned the heated mirrors definitely operate with the rear screen on. Not sure about the front.
Not sure how subtle this heat would be and if you would notice by touch though.
