Heated mirrors and windshield washer nozzles?

I can't seem to find this anywhere. Does the F30 come with heated side (wing) mirrors and windshield washer nozzles? Either on the base model, with the Lines or with a package?

Seems a silly little thing, but very useful for those of us up north. And a standard feature on my 7+ year old VW.

Not sure. But with BMW USA it is safer to assume it is not there unless listed. for what its worth, BMW UK lists this as standard on every trim level. So either it is there or BMW USA delibrately de-contended the car to save a few bucks.

From the Manual:

Windshield washer nozzles
The washer jets are automatically heated whenever
the ignition is switched on.

Also from the manual page # 53 Both exterior mirrors are heated when engine is running.

Standard on BMWs for years.

Thanks guys. I had a feeling they were standard features... but with BMWs you never know. They love to sell you things that everyone else seems to get included. I never thought to download and check the owner's manual.

I have a wishlist of all the things I want in a car, and surprisingly the plain old 328i Sport Line has many of them standard. However, the things it doesn't have standard would cost $10K+ in optional packages just to get them... such as Xenons, sunroof, heated seats, NAV, satellite radio, etc. (many of these features are standard on other brands... even mass market and economy cars.) Oh, and LED taillights which aren't even an option now!

I think if you aren't in a hurry I would wait one more year for when you can look at ordering a MY14 vehicle, I expect that BMW will include more gear standard and offer some of the missing options (LED lighting all around, etc) for that MY as the new A4 will be out and it will be putting some pressure on their sales.

That's sort of my approach too. I'm going to get a 335xi now to scratch the itch, and then in 3 yrs when the lease is up re-evaluate getting another BMW or something else (the new A4 will be out by then and should be impressive).
