    I had this modification on my list of bits to do, the car I have doesn't have heated mirrors, so I was going to tap in off the rear heater power and add a 2nd switch on the console for them.

    I'm also thinking of installing a small timer device, so that both the rear heater and heated mirrors are only on for 5mins at a time, so as not to burn them out.
    Current Car:

    Kill List:
    1994 BMW E36 316/320/325 Conversion
    1993 Ford Escort 1.4 ::: 1994 Vauxhall Astra 1.7TDi ::: 1995 Ford Escort 1.4
    1994 Volvo 940se Turbo ::: 1999 Vauxhall Vectra 2.0 SRI (140)

    Just to update you all on my original thread
    I had the misfortune to damage the n/s mirror so i got another set of genuine M3 mirrors, it appears that the heated glass is on permanetly on with the ignition on, and works perfectly.
    Hope this helps someonelse
