I don't know if '04 is the first year, but mine has the heated wheel.

so when does the wheel heat u[? with the rear defrost like the mirrors? or does it automatically turn on when you turn on the ignition?

Look for a switch button just below 9:00 o'clock on the steering wheel.

Mine had a grill emblem and a hood emblem (not an ornament, but a badge on the hood). Only the Night-Vision equipped cars have the emblem on the hood. But someone had removed the NV on my car and replaced the NV grill with a 'normal' DTS grill with the emblem. I removed the one on the hood because I thought it looked silly with both.

I can tell you an '01 does not have a heated steering wheel. Not sure when that started but that's a cool feature.

My son regrets not spending the extra money to buy a 2004 (he has a '03 DTS), because they had the heated steering wheel and cooled seat options.
