Not standard, but pretty cheap from the dealer (<$200 installed). I understand some colder parts of Canada require cars to be sold with block heaters, but not in Toronto or southern Ontario.

what he said.


I personaly think they're going to make them stander here as a change soon. They just added them to the RSX so there's no reason to keep them off the TSX.

I'd be a lot more interested in power-retractable mirrors, which I'd find very, very useful. I'd pay extra for it.

I must be missing something about heated mirrors. I had it on my last two cars (Legend and TL-S), and rarely used it. Didn't seem to make much difference, or maybe I just didn't need it. And we get plenty of cold weather here.

Larch, I'm in the basically the same neighbourhood as you (across the lake) and I find them very useful. Aside from melting snow and ice, the heat does a great job of evaporating condensation anytime it's wet.

That's about what I thought, kite. But somehow it just wasn't an issue for me, and hasn't been this winter either, even with all this weather and even without heated mirrors. :dunno:

And I do actually look in the mirrors. I've known people who didn't and were proud of it. :dunno about that either: :D
