....just to repeat a previous comment , I use the RST Paragon heated gloves  - and they do provide warmth to the front of the fingers warm . I only use the bike during the winter months for a regular ride out just to keep it in use and these gloves fit that purpose ideally . Comfy gloves, not too bulky and adequate battery life - waterproof too but I have not tested that feature (yet) . Using these gloves I have never thought that I would ever need heated grips as well

The heated grips replace the throttle housing with a new one, hence the 300$ cost.  It looks like they are charging you for 2-2 1/2 hours of labor.  If you really want the grips, I would schedule it with the break-in service as the bike will already be apart.  That may save you money. 
I have the heated grips and love them.  When its cold this is the only bike I ride.  You do have to hold the grip to keep fingers warm, but it definitely works.  I also have a desert sled, and I installed the bark busters with their complete covers.  It helps but its definitely not a heated grip.  I'm a bit of a baby about cold hands though.  I've bought about 6 pairs of gloves (non-heated) for the DS and NONE of them kept me warm enough for an all day ride.  Heated gloves are a must for me if the grips are not heated on rides longer than 1 hr.  Buzz's option sounds great.  I have a pair of RST track glove and can attest they are fantastic, premium quality!
