Hi All,

Probably sounds a silly question but I thought i'd ask anyway, my heated mirrors seem to be on all the time, i'm guessing this is wrong. Do they normally work of the rear heated screen button or are they on a thermostat system?

On the new R56 one...I am pretty sure it is a thermostat that activates them..... I presuume similarly on the previous generation of car also. Sure it states in the manual how they work.

They are on all the time on the 1st gen - a waste of petrol (ever bit of power your car needs costs more petrol even if it is a tiny ammount)
When we retro fit them we wire them to the HRW circuit
