Mechanic Messed up Car

Hey guys, just got my car back from a horrendous shop (don't use geico). Anyways I got my 06 325xi back and I noticed that the master switch doesn't work anymore.

I brought the car to the shop in the first place to replace the whole passenger side mirror which was vandalized . They installed a used blue mirror??? instead of a clear mirror like my previous mirror and my driver side mirror (I have the premium package). Now my whole master switch doesn't not function at all other than lighting up so it is getting power. The other 3 individual door window switches works, just nothing on the driver master switch. My master switch works perfectly prior to the accident. Receipt says it was a auto folding w/o dim.

Long story short there's no way I'm going back to that shop. I've decided to go to an authorized bmw mechanic or just fix it myself. I was wondering if this is a coding issue because it was a used mirror installed or they disabled my master switch somehow through wiring. If it is a coding issue I plan on getting the BT tool to fix it myself. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks

wtf go back to the shop and have them fix it correctly. If you don't you are just getting screwed. I would never let a shop deal with me like that. You paid for them to fix something and they did not, they used an incorrect part and incorrectly installed it.

oh and geico sucks. so does progressive according to my body shop guy.
