    I've been following Advances in Car Tech on facebook (Their sponsor link is here Advanced in Car Technologies) and they've been posting about retro fitting heated wing mirrors to A1.

    Does the A1 not come with heated mirrors as standard or is it something you have to tick?

    Why would Heated mirrors not be a standard factory fit item?
    My 98 A4 has them, so did 5 sierras. :|

    They have been standard fit on the A1 from some time in the 1st half of this year.

    So it was only the first couple of years that never had heated mirrors?

    That's stupid.

    Hi

    No heated mirrors as standard on car from launch until spec updated mid 2012 where the 3 door gained these as well as the aerial integrated into rear spoiler. Annoying to say the least as the Polo had heated mirrors as standard and that car cost thousands less than the A1.

    The retro fit by Advanced is proving a winner.

    dead easy to do for a1 door control units do not need changing just the door switch and you can do the low cost option and run the the loom in each door and add the heated mirrors then encode both door control units

    or

    retro fit the heated mirror units complete as they come with the loom so you need additional switch and mirror switch

    done three now
