    yeah i thought all A3s have heated wing mirrors. where you adjust your wing mirrors at the 12 o'clock position there should be a little heater symbol. turn the dial to that position and the heaters come on when you activate your rear windshield heater

    Or look behind glass to see if it has the 2 wires connected for heated, another option is to turn on rear demister, but this usually works inconjunction with external air temperature, so may not work until temps drop.

    Probably got wires there, so can plug them in & check door module coding.
