I think you are still missing the auto dimming rear view mirror and heated wiper mods

auto dimming mirror is in the works. The heated wipers I have heard about on Subaru cars. Not really sure why one would need that other than the few times the wipers are frozen to the window after a storm.

In my 40, they freeze to the window during the storm. When Subzali and I were coming back from Cruise Moab last year in that snow storm, I actually had to stop and break the ice off the blades to keep them going.

Subzali had to stop to chip the ice off himself.

Our Subaru has them, actually a nice feature. One benefit is your windsheild is a little less suceptible to cracking when defrost is on and it's cold out, since the heater bands already partially heat up the windshield to take some of the "sting" out of the temperature difference. Also when the snow loads up below the windsheild, it tends to stay a little wetter down there with the heater on, which makes it not build up on the wiper as much. Overall it just generally seems to work a little better in heavy snow.

The heated wipers rock. Because of those few times a year where the wipers are snowpacked and frozen during the storm. Really great mod - now I need to figure out heated side mirrors.

My Durango had those...At first I was like "Eh..."

But after awhile I came to like that feature...Like heated wipers they may only come in handy a handful of times each year but boy are they handy

heated side mirrors are awesome! I used to like the auto dimming side mirrors until I had to replace one at the tune of $1,000 dollars! That is one issue with having a 1000 deductible...
