How can I tell if I have heated side-view mirrors

I've been searching online spec sheets but cannot come up with an answer. I have a 2008 3 s GT hatchback, and someone sideswiped my car, destroying the COVER to the mirror, so I'm guessing I need a whole new one. Question is, heated 5-pin or non-heated 3-pin? In all the years I've owned this car, the question has never arisen before, and now I'm stumped. Does anyone know?

My understanding is, if you bought your car north of the Canadian border, it has heated mirrors, if you bought it in the U.S.A, it does not. Apparently we have no need for them down here.

This is hilarious, given that my house is literally 30 min south of the Canadian border. It does, however, give me the answer I need, for which many thanks, Shipo.
