Not sure if this was already listed somewhere under desirable options. Apologies if it was.I learned almost twenty years ago how much of a safety factor heated mirrors are during some heavy California winter rain storms. I was driving an Acura then, and distinctly remember a night of bad weather freeway driving. But the side mirrors had a button for heating. Cleared them right up and helped immensely in viewing traffic lanes both left and right. Although the heating elements could be triggered automatically by temperature and/or use of windshield wiper, for energy savings reason, maybe it should be a selectable option (auto/manual) plus a button to activate if the manual mode is in effect.
