Retrofit Heated Mirrors Campaign

Postby ChrisRyu » Mon Mar 28, 2011 12:07 pm

Hi Everyone,

As requested, I am creating a dedicated thread to this topic.

I have heard from a number of A1 owners that they love their A1, but the one thing that they feel lets the car down is that it doesn't have heated mirrors as standard.

If you are effected by this limitation and would like a retro-fit solution, then please fill in the form over on the A1OC site: http://www.audia1ownersclub.co.uk/heated-mirror-retro-fit/

The registration numbers of cars affected, are being sent to Audi as part of a 'DISS report'. Audi normally need atleast 5 before they will investigate the matter, but the more we get, the better the chance of a resolution.

My ultimate aim here, as a representative of the UK's Audi owners, is to get heated door mirrors to be a standard option and for Audi UK to develop a genuine retro-fit solution (free re-call is obviously the best!).

I will use the bottom of this post to update you on our progress:

Latest Progress:
18th October 2012 - In our last update we mentioned that Audi UK have now accepted our point and heated mirrors are now standard on all Audi A1s. However, we have been working with Advanced In-Car Technologies and now have a retro-fit solution. Call them on 01202 776699 and mention the A1 Owners Club to get a free upgrade to include auto-dipping passenger mirror (dips when reversing to ease parking).

Just added my name. I did mention it on the survey Audi/IPSOS sent out a month or so back. It's a 'safety feature' standard on most cars now so why not our lovely A1s.

Hi, I've ordered my car and won't be able to get it until June. Will I be able to get heated mirrors if this scheme works? I just could't afford the heated mirrors lol, but my last car did have it as standard so I do miss it.

I receive my A1 pretty soon and would be happy to sign up. It does seem silly for such a high-class car, especially an Audi, to ignore quite a simple feature. Even the current Fiesta comes with them as standard as far as I know.

Just added my car to the list as a fogged up mirror is a serious hazard on the motorway. :oops:

Just added my details. It really is a step backwards to not have heated mirrors. If I had realised mine did not have them then I would have ordered them as an option.
As far as safety is concerned heated mirrors are a must especially here in Blighty as we do get quite a bit of damp weather, enough to mist up the best of mirrors !
Got it !!!!
