I thought I read the Elite model in Canada (our A-Spec + Tech equivalent) got a heated steering wheel standard and assumed it was in both CVT and 6MT, but now I'm completely unable to find it. That's what was giving me hope that a compatible heated wheel might be out there, but it looks like their only extra perk might be heated rear seats.

Where did you see this? I've seen the specs and after-market options, and it said nothing about the manual and heated steering not being compatible.
The Serra Acura guys who do the podcast said on their end the sales sheets don't have the heated wheel marked as available for the 6MT.

Personally, I'd love to repurpose paddle shifters into dedicated track forward/back buttons!

It does not. It's a dealer option with the cvt.

I figured as much thanks for clarifying that!

In checking Amazon for heated steering wheel covers, there weren’t any that I liked enough to hassle charging them or plugging them into the car. If anyone finds one they believe to be worthy of trying, please post the item name and/or link.

I'm not going to hold my breath that a heated wheel will be available for dealer install at pickup, but spec sheets for the Canadian 6MT model suggest they get a heated wheel standard there, so it shouldn't take long for us to be able to get them here as well.

Post #33 here has a full list of dealership options, and one is a heated wheel without paddle shifters, so the heated wheel will be an option on the 6MT model.

Nice. I am hoping that the heated wheel has stitching that matches the rest of the interior depending on what color you went with. (I know it's a minor quibble, but I'd be a little bummed if they all came with black stitching as a one-size-fits-all solution.)
