    Do you have autopilot. I would like to see the heating element in windshield in front of the AP camera in action.

    You may want to check into the radar unit on AP cars as well. I was told that they are heated. In light of how easily they get caked with snow, I find that hard to believe. They certainly are not heated enough to effectively prevent snow and ice buildup. It would be interesting to see what you can learn about whether or not they are, in fact, heated, and if they are, how much.

    Aren't we supposed to have heated washer nozzles as well? Your video passed by that area but I didn't see anything that looked like heat.

    Could you check that area and let us know? I ask because this is listed in my features but it has never worked very well (or at all that I can tell).
