Not quite. As I said they are not offered in Canada, we get snow and ice here.
The washers are required by law in Europe as is auto-leveling with HID and LED lights, they are not required in North America. Lexus Canada decided to drop them on the F Sport to keep the price down I suppose. Washers are a great bonus in winter to blast off the salt spray. It takes a blast to penetrate that stuff, it doesn't matter if the lens is hot or not. It may be better that the lens is cooler as it will allow the spray to run off instead of baking on the lens. I guess I will find out next winter.
I could see where a hot lens could melt ice and snow that has accumulated over night, but you are supposed to clear that off before you drive. Once moving you don't get anymore ice or snow unless it is some sort of weird sleet event.
