    Is this manual a 'shop' type manual, the type that comes with torques settings and procedures for install, re-install?

    no…this is a the regular owners manual that comes with every MINI.

    Anyone know what “wind sheild heating” is? Just a special defrost mode, or something different?

    Nothing seen on the LSD… too bad.

    The heated windshield includes very thin wires inside the windshield which can be heated similar to the rear window. Thought it wasn't available in the US though.

    Its a shame that there are so many options that the dealer can turn on to customize your MINI. You won't know about most of them until you've had a chance to read the manual after purchase, then you have to wait until your first service to have them connected. See page 47 “Vehicle Memory” for a listing. Being my second new MINI, I've already sent a list to be connected during arrival prep at the dealer.

    Hey, that's a two-spoke steering wheel! (see page 12)

    You especially won't know about them if your dealer doesn't even MENTION them, like my didn't. Wasn't until after I'd driven 90 miles home after delivery that I realized there were any options! Wish this manual would have been available before I picked up my car.
