Hi it definitely shows it in new mini 3/5 door brochure 313 reads exterior mirror package includes electrically adjustable heated mirrors with memory function and heated washer nozzles. You are right about heated screen I had to pay £75/ or £90 for that too. It seems like you have to pay extra for everything in a mini ,I had heated front screens in cars 20 years ago as standard.You have to be so careful I ordered a sport Jcw pack which includes sports suspension supposedly for free ,however the dealer had to adjust order manually to put it on as a cost option and then discount it off

Me too,I ordered Jcw interior and exterior packs ,I think off top of my head both were £2 k each with vat,and then I had to fork out for bigger wheels and I couldn't get config to put them on car. You can end up going on and on ,,,,,,,,and on with options.

Yes if you order a totally standard mini you get heated wing mirrors and washer jets but you can pay extra for the folders which they don't tell you apparently also dips down on passenger side to help reversing.

I think they come on when you press the switch on the heated rear window Neil.

Thanks for that Jeremy! Wish it was laid out so you know exactly what you get and what you have to pay for....

I agree with JB. Heated mirrors come as standard. Like other BMW cars, they are always on - there is no on/off switch.
They are not standard on my 2010 Clubman cooper D Neil......Sick of having to clear them every morning...

Think BMW changed the heated mirrors from always on to on below a certain temperature a few models back
E46 I had were always on, great on a damp muggy morning to clear dew and condensation not necessarily ice, but the later models only come on at a preset temp, probably linked to frost warning,
Don't like this as it won't dry the mirrors in damp weather.
MINI will have followed suit with this method.
Like others have said, I think the heated mirrors are standard

I believe on the R56 the heated mirrors are temperature driven and you can't 'force' them on. They are also very gentle, so many folk think they haven't got them when they won't clear the mirrors instantly - but drive half a mile and hey presto, they're clear. The upside of this is that they remain on all the time, as I can testify having driven long distances in winter and the mirrors remain clear - well, until the salt in the spray gets dried on the mirrors as a white film.
