I have a new DS/MCS 05 with heated mirrors (as part of the cold weather package) do they turn on automatically based on temperature or when you use the defroster? I have no clue how to activate this option.

Actually, the mirrors are not heated only when the rear defroster is on. They are actually heated all the time that the ignition is on (as are the windshield washer nozzles) regardless of the status of the rear defroster.

Though it would make much more sense if they were activated by the defroster, wouldn't it?!

Not really: I've got A/C and have only used the rear screen demister once - just to see if it was working. I let the A/C clear the inside of the screens!

On all the time - very handy - even if its just summer raining - the spray steams off! I've also not used the rear demister much at all, but the heated mirrors are frequently handy.
