    A4 cab heated door mirrors

    Hi, sorry if this subject has already been explained but I am having trouble confirming if my car has the capability of upgrading to heated mirrors. I've popped the near side lens off and can see that it is not a heated one but the two wires are there. From reading other posts I was hoping that it was just a case of retro fitting heated units. Before spending the £70 odd on 2 OEM units I waited until the outside temp had dropped (1 degree) and put a basic 12v circuit tester onto the 2 wires with the heated rear screen activated. Unfortunately there did not appear to be any power reaching the wires.
    I would appreciate it if someone could confirm if the wires are connected up and if so how I would go about activating them. Car has every other extra including fully electric and heated seats so it seems odd that something so basic is missing?
    thanks in advance
    Steve
    PS bought my first Audi and first cab on 31.5.12, the day before the start of the wettest summer in recorded history, no regrets so far though

    they should just need new heated mirrors
    they usaly have the drivers side fitted
    and pass no heated but wires are in both.

    Thanks, just to confirm, audi say it does not have heated mirrors as standard. Was wondering if just fitting heated units would do the trick even though I don't seem to be getting 12v! haven't taken the driver side off but was assuming it would be the same.
