Replacement drivers power fold switch

I have just purchased an X3 2012 BMW and have to replace a broken wing mirror switch, the adjustment up down left right arrow control is faulty and my mirrors just point to the sky when I try to adjust them, also the parking dip does not work anymore. I have bought a second hand part and I was just about to fit it when I was told by the breaker that the part needs to be coded into the cars vin. So I thought I would ask for your help does this control panel of switches need to be coded into the car, I was going to swop the whole lot in
one go !.
Any help would be much appreciated.

I replaced the control unit in my 2013 with one out of a new F25 and I did not have to code it or do anything else.
