Does anyone know of an option to convert the Accord Sport to have heated mirrors? I know I could purchase heated mirrors from Honda and the wiring is likely already there on the Sport. But they are about $360 per mirror. Is there another way to get heated mirrors? Some kind of mirror insert replacement? I looked online and couldn't find anything.

Yeah, never understood that. I never thought of that as a 'feature' until I bought my Honda.

I do not think there is a heated mirror that fits into the sport, unless there's something in a canadian model. that said, i've been contemplating the large bill to drop in replacement mirrors from an Ex, strictly for the turn signals. that came out to about $180 a side if i remember. You would then likely have to get the wiring harness as well, and add a button to the dash to turn them on or wire them in with the front defrost.

Usually heated mirrors turn on when you turn on the rear defroster.

Yep theres heated mirrors on all the trims up here.

I remember on the 7th gen when there was a separate switch on the door for heated mirrors. Now its combined with the rear defrost.

You have a USDM Sport. Your mirrors are totally different than the CDM Sport.

The CDM Sport has mirrors shaped like the USDM EX and up trim levels with the integrated turn signals, although without LaneWatch on the passenger side.

You would need to convert the entire mirror assembly. This is a very costly upgrade.

Yeah that's why I was asking around if there were any type of mirror inserts you could put in. Keep the same housing, but change the insert to a heated element.

It seems like the mirrors on the sport in the US are the exact same mirrors from the 8th gen. Couldn't you get parts for the 8th gen EX-L?

Although they don't come in ***...

Installing heated side mirrors with turn signals on the Sport?

Can you order these parts separately and install the parts on a Sport? From what I understand electrical connections can connect together?

May possibility needs a switch to turn them on? Not sure. Thoughts?

Might as well buy the canadian sport mirrors and try to rig it somehow. Is it possible probably, how much do you want to spend trying to do it?

I didn't get anywhere good with it. I spoke with a Honda tech and found out that the USDM Sport is not pre wired for heated mirrors. So it would be quite a project, on top of purchasing $600 worth of EX mirrors.
