Heated side mirrors?

Does anyone know (or can verify) if Model S will have heated side mirrors? I have them on my Prius, and it's so nice not to have to worry about scrapping ice off them on a cold day.

I was also thinking about asking/suggesting a windshield washer heater (which I had installed after-market), but I don't want to get greedy.

I found a video which showed folded mirrors. In all excitement I thought this was a question on the forum. Then I noticed that the question is whether the mirror are folded automatically or manually. Logically, this is not shown in the video, only the fact that they are folded...

Anyway, this is the video ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rV50IIgvJPI

I would also love it if the right mirror was programmed to automatically look down at the curb to assist in parking.

+1 @My5bAby. Genius!

I programmed my passenger side mirror to look at the kerb simply by using the seat & mirror memory function on my current car. Memory 1 has my normal settings, memory 2 is exactly the same but with the passenger memory customised. I still have the memory 3 position free if need be.

Makes it very easy, coming into a more difficult spot, just select memory 2. Once parked hit memory 1 and all is back to normal.

Mark E - great idea and good lateral thinking. provided you have 3 memories available (in case a significant other wants to drive the car on a regular basis). The Lexus LS 400 i owned 10+ years ago had automatic mirror movement down to show the sidewalk. Crazy that Tesla does not even seem to have power folding mirrors like my B class Merc, when they are using window controls from the Merc parts bin. the buttons are all there.
I can only hope that by next year when we get our cars in Australia that these luxuries which have been around for a long time will have been incorporated into the cars as "ver 1.5" if you will. (includes centre console and door map pockets).

dborn: there is something to be said for us having to wait until next year. I'd just like the LCT depreciation threshold for EVs to be raised before delivery.

I would also love it if the right mirror was programmed to automatically look down at the curb to assist in parking.

The BMW 1-series does this when putting in reverse (may even come standard, but not sure). I love this feature.

Mark E - yes, for all the "carbon tax" and environmental bleating going on in Australia, you would think that concessions for EV's would be very generous. The states are doing nothing, i wrote to Barry O'Farrell suggesting that registration should be concessional. Got a reply that some committee would be looking into a raft of different things and this would be one. Well, you know as well as I what a "committee" will achieve....
Waiting til next year may well be hard, but in the long run most of the bugs will be worked out in the States, and with homologation, we may well get a better more complete product.

My 2005 Acura and 2012 Kia both do this as well. On both of them, if the switch to adjust the mirror is to the right, the right mirror goes down, left switch left mirror, center position, neither does. I assumed it was just a standard thing on cars with power mirrors these days.

Sorry to mis-quote - I forgot you have to re-state the tags on each P
