In most states cars are not considered "used" until over 3000 miles so your dealer may have some leeway to get you the car you really want.
I'm actually looking to get the heated mirrors now, too. The reason being that winter *just* started and until now I've had no idea of the almost need I have.

The reason is this car has *great* aerodynamics. The problem with that is that no wind ever touches the backside of the mirrors...so any moisture or melted ice just sits there, untouched. Most cars, when you drive certain speeds, kind of clear that stuff away on their own. The reason I didn't buy the heated mirrors is because I didn't think I'd need it, since I had no way of knowing that's how this car was until now.
