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.

Yup.  Had it happen to me twice last year.  And my bud once.  

But my dealer just gave us the replacement parts and he gave me a set in advance.  No news if a fix is comming out.

If it breaks again, which it probably will.  I will give bombardier a Call and raise some ####.

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.


P.S. happy birthday to me

Nice Signature all out racing.  It must really do wonders for the respect you get from Mach Z and skidoo owners on this site.  

I would recommend a change.

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