I searched the forums, thoroughly I think, and didn't find anybody posting about heated side mirrors. Has anyone modded their I1 somehow? (Moderator, feel free to move this to another forum if it's in the wrong place.)

Thanks!

Sorry to see you were rear ended. Did the car protect you and your passenger(s), if you had any?

The car performed admirably. Best of all, user IC user Fabio took it off my hands so it didn't go to a junkyard.

Oh, that's great, silver03cvt!

No problem, Eli! I didn't create a signature, 'cause I don't have an Insight (yet).

Being a 2 seater, I was questioning the "passenger(s)" part.
Actually I do occasionally have passengers that aren't in the passenger seat. :) *points to user pic* :D

I asked him point blank if the car would be a donor or recipient, and he told me definitely a recipient.

first gen. I know they dont come with them, that's why I'm wondering if anyone knows of an aftermarket installable part, like a heating element.

I used to build squad cars, so installing something behind the glass wouldn't be a prob for me. I just haven't been able to find anything avail.

Seriously? Get these (10-second Google search)
Can't speak for GasSipr, but I was looking less for parts and more from somebody who said, "I did it, it was successful, and here's how I did it."

Heated mirror

I was on a similar page there as far as did anyone perform this successfully. I do, however, appreciate the parts tip. Some searching revealed the following write-up on a successful DIY install. They reference the same heated element and Yes, I know it is performed on a Subaru but it still provides some details. Just some more info and I plan to go this route possibly next week. If all goes as planned, I will take pics and try to put a writeup here.

:D

Heated Mirror Install Completed

"I did it, it was successful." This was not an easy task. I took pics along the way so hope to put them up somewhere for viewing.
