Heated/Folding rear view mirrors

Mostly looking for heated, but from the tiny bit of reading I've done so far, folding seems to be part and parcel with those.

I've got an '06 TiGrey speed, but color is immaterial. I'd prefer that color, but will paint if necessary.

I'm looking for either someone that can point me to new ones as the links I found no longer seem to work or someone that has a pair and is selling them.

If all else fails, you weren't driving a Mazda6

Yours not heating up any more?

You could search for posts about installing mirrors with the turn signal's built in (euro style maybe? dunno...) and see if they still have the originals

I really want the heated part of the mirrors. Don't know as mine have ever done this since I've had the car and this year I miss them!

I wasn't that concerned with the turn signals, but I can't see that they would be a bad idea. I really just like the heated part. Folding is an added bonus as well.

If just your elements are burned out you can just get new glass. Or are yours not heated at all? Could check for wires behind the mirror...

I've can post the bit from the manual that shows how the glass comes off to be replaced including the heater wiring if it helps.

Of course, if yours were never heated than ya gonna need different ones. Which makes me wonder if the wires/plug is there for em?

Mine work when the rear defroster is turned on, and results are seen in just a few moments, very quick.

I never had the heated ones AFAIK. If they were, they broke before I owned the vehicle.

If I order these, you should come to one of our meets when it warms up a bit. Or if you're closer to Woburn, we can go to my buddy's Line-X shop.

And one semi-stupid question: Do the defrosting mirrors have the little defrosting icon on them anywhere? They did in my Infiniti, but I don't see them on my current MS6 mirrors.

Didn't know if there was an external indicator to look for.
