I have a 95 Riviera, and I thought I read that heated exterior mirrors as well as an auto dimming rear view mirror were options.

How do I know if our 95 is equipped with either?

Also, if we do have the heated exterior mirrors, how are they operated? On my Volvo, its heated mirrors were auto-magic and heated when the rear window defrost was turned on. Is that similar with the Riviera?

Thanks!
Al

Heated exterior mirrors were marked with the defrost symbol.

Was this part of a given option package (luxury package, etc) or an individual option?

Thanks,
Al

Al (are you related to Big Ben btw??), I just looked at the window stickers from my old man's 95 and my own 98. His 95 doesn't have heated side mirrors but has the auto-dim rearview mirror. The original window sticker has the "Mirrors - Automatic Day/Night Inside & Outside Rearview" included as part of the "Prestige Option Package (SE)." No mention of any automatic / electrochromic mirrors anywhere else on the sticker.

My 98 has heated mirrors as a standard feature and electrochromic inside and outside mirrors as part of the "Prestige Option Package (SE)." Hope this helps!

Thanks!  Apparently the 95 only had the auto-dim rear-view and drivers side, but no heated mirrors.
