You will not need the electric visor unless your driving in freezing rain. Only problem i ever had was the mouth peice buttons snap off. But bombardier is basicly giving the replacement part away but its only a short time till it goes again.
No need for a heated visor. Your breath goes out the side of the helmet. Except when it is about -25C then the condensation freezes up in the breathing tubes, but most days there is no problem. I have used mine 2 seasons now and never had a moment of problems, one of the best investments I have made.They just take a bit of getting used to.
I run with a electric visor and I can tell you that more then a few times it would have been impossible to see with out one. Heavy wet snow and freezing ran at night causes alot of trouble even with electric visor. If I bought a modular helment I would buy one with electric visor so when need arises you plug it in and away you go. Best of both worlds.
I haven't had any problems with my modular helmet. It will not fog up even if you try. The only negative i found was when I once got stuck, After digging out the sled It was hard to catch my breath. If I would have opened the front and unbuttoned the breath box I would have been ok. I have never had a problem with the buttons or snaps.

Catch an open house or snow show and U can buy one for $200.00 now, I payed $350.00 two years ago
Try it without the heated visor, you probably wont need it but if you do it will cost you an additional $150.00 bucks.
I have never broke a button yet, my buddy's have, but that's because they rip it off without thinking first.

To eliminate icing up lube the breathing tubes with a little vegetable oil
