Hopefully this works for you. It is strange because that is what the dealer said was wrong with our X3 as well so I was all excited for the fix (after waiting 2 weeks because they kept sending the 2012 mirror). Unfortunately, the mirrors still didn't work after that. Apparantly there is a difference in sensitivity that we still can't pinpoint for 2013. For all those with 2013's- keep complaining because the more complaints that are generated, the quicker corporate will find a fix.
