heated wing mirrors MKII 12 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 117
Hi,
Has anyone got heated wing mirrors on their MKII, my old car had them and i am really
missing them on the MR2, now it is winter (am also missing heated seats, but thats another story),

According to
www.toyota.co.uk/bv/1024-heritage/Brochures/MR2/MR2_Oct99.pdf
The UK models had them, i wonder has anyone retro fitted them?
Thanks,
Tony

If you're suffering from lag, you're either in the wrong gear or the wrong car!

yeah it is one to save, that brochure alright. Makes the red tips dials on my rev 5 look SO faded in comparison to that brochure.
I have pdfs of the autocar review of the NA from 1994 if anyone is interested.

tony, if you get the bits let me know and I'll give you a hand to fit them, I'll definitely do that at some stage so it'd be good to know where everything goes

If they were on UK cars, then surely retro fitting them should be easy enough. Even if you butchered the UK mirrors and removed the heating element (or whatever it is they use) and the glass, you could just hardwire them to a switch on the dash or something?
