Heated Mirrors

Hey guys, kinda of a silly question I guess. I have a 2009 Impreza which is parked outside all day every day and the mirrors ice up and get all misty when I'm on the highway when it rains and it makes it sometimes hard to see into them. I wanted to have them heated, but I wasn't sure if it's a simple task. I checked all over the internet for a kit, but the most I could find is the mirror glass with the heater element on the back of it. Is it possible that the mirrors are pre-wired to be heated and all I would have to do is switch out the glass?

Re: Heated Mirrors

Maybe the heater element weighed the car down too much :-)

No, they're not heated standard. I don't have the All Weather Package. BugEye_Bob, would it be diffucult and costly to have a dealer wire heated mirrors to the rear defroster?
