Heated Mirrors..

I searched on this section and the DIY section briefly, cause I'm at work, but couldn't find anything. I was wondering if any model from the 5th Gen came with heated mirrors? If not is it possible to install them and just wire it to the rear defroster like it is in a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherkee? Thanks for the help in advance.

Re: Heated Mirrors..

I believe that they were an option in Canada, and some of the colder parts of northern Japan. However as to how they work or can/can't be wired I have no idea, as I've not actually seen or heard of it being done.

Wanna be the first?

Re: Heated Mirrors..

you are correct Colin

those lucky damn Canadians... heated seats and mirrors, argh!!

read through this article or do a control F and search for heated mirrors
"The Japanese version of the Prelude also had certain options which were never found in state-bound models but did show up in the Canadian market. For instance, the Japanese Prelude had power folding, as well as a rear windscreen wiper while the Canadian market had heated mirrors..."

Re: Heated Mirrors..

thanks for the help. Looks like me and a buddy of mine will have our work cut out. If i can get it done correctly then i'll try and get a DIY together. Maybe i'll skip getting my exhaust and do this instead lol

Re: Heated Mirrors..

Is there any reason as to why you want it, or just the wank factor of look at me, I've got heated mirrors! (Which I totally get btw)

This sort of equipment isn't restricted to Preludes either, a lot of "cold weather" cars are equipped with similar stuff. And it's regionalised as well - like how Mitsu Evos from the north of Japan have heated seats, mirrors and whathavyou, but from (I think!) the south of Nagano (where they had the winter olympics a few years ago in 1998) they didn't get that stuff, since it was deemed not cold enough to requrie it.

Re: Heated Mirrors..

I live in New Jersey and since it is winter time here so my mirrors have been getting frosted over. My fiance has the Grand Cherkee but since its her car and I can't take it to work when she does so I am stuck with driving the lude all year round, which only bothers me during winter lol

It is basically for when the winter time and whenever I can't see out of them but the wank factor is a bonus ^_^

Re: Heated Mirrors..

Some people are just lucky to have cupholders in their Preludes, let alone heated ones.

Re: Heated Mirrors..

i agree with you dbd6604, my so called cupholder doesn't hold anything. if i can find any preludes around me with heated mirrors i'll try and get a DIY written when i do it or if i can find another car that uses the similiar set up i'll let everyone know.

Re: Heated Mirrors..

I am very interested in this as well... Although the winter isnt as bad here, I drive to work at 6:15am, and my rear view mirrors are always fogged up..

It happened this morning, and I have a triangular ice scraper my mom got my that has rubber on one side, but after I wipe it my mirrors always seem to fog back up...

So then I have to roll down my window while driving at 65mph in the freezing cold and wipe it off again...

heated cupholders FTW!!....not really though
