Retro-fit Heated Front Screen?

Hi Guy's,
I have a 2013 FJCW and I was wondering if the dealer can retro-fit the Heated Front Screen?
Anybody know the answer & approximate cost?
Cheers.

I'm sre it coulod be done. Ring a dealer time? Or one of the windscreen companies. Wonder if the wiring and switch is there? I've got a 2005 R53 which, I think quite unusually, has a heated front screen. Rather 'Fordy' I thought. It also has auto wipers and auto lights. I dread to think what it will cost to replace when it braeks! And whether the windscreen fitters can do it without making a complete mess of it.

Remember Minis are built to order so if it hasn't already got a heated screen then it may not have the loom for it so piecing a section in will probably be costly. Poundland are doing a pair of scrapers for 99p atm

Hmm, good point.
It does have the button for the HFS, I suppose that doesn't necessarily mean it has the loom though.

No but having the button is a good start.
