I've got heated mirrors on the car, just something else to go wrong, it takes about 10 seconds to remove frost on non heated ones, 1 second to wipe off water.
Not top of my priority list when buying any vehicle.

Transit mirrors are so easy to nick. They are held by the equivalent a press stud. Just a gentle lever and it's gone!
Used to have the company's transit mirror stolen regularly. Blame white van man!

I'm not signing anything.

The two impulses in travel are to get away from home, and the other is to pursue something - a landscape, people, an exotic place. Certainly finding a place that you like or discovering something unusual is a very sustaining thing in travel.

I don't know how long your arms are but when I'm driving I can't reach the nearside mirrors on my car, let alone the MH This is doubly true when travelling down a motorway at 60mph.

If you are happy to have reduced visibility, so be it. Until my heated mirrors go wrong (car is 13y old, MH is 14y old) I shall continue to be grateful for them. When they do fail, I'll be no worse than you until I manage to fix them, which I will! - Gordon

On my transit, as i see it. The heat goes to the mirrors all the time, as there is no switch/ They are electrically moveable.

As space runner says, they are very easy to remove.

On a fiat they are on the heated rear window switch, now I know there is no heated rear window but if you have the switch for it that is where you turn them on

This is me
