Pretty Pissed off right now

I ordered a tow mirror off ebay. I didn't realize that the tow mirrors were different from 99-04 and 05-07. The add said it would fit an 05. Well if fits but it s appearance if differant than the 05 mirror tow mirror on my drivers side. The Mirror I ordered is actually for a 99-04. SO I have 2 different mirrors. Its not noticeable unless you really look or know what to look for but its drivin me nuts. I emailed the person I bought it from and they are stating its my fault. They won't send me the correct mirror. I have to ship the mirror they sent me back to them and then they will refund my money to me. But that screws me because I am moving on Sunday and bought the mirrors so I can see around the trailer Im towing. Those dang paddle mirrors suck. I don't have the spare cash nor time to order a new mirror. It wouldn't arrive in time. So What should I do? Try to find someone to buy one or the other? The drivers side of is used and the passenger side 99-04 is new. Im pissed that the company wont take responsibility and send me a replacement mirror.

The bright side though is the quality looks as good as oem. haha

That sucks, I guess the only thing you really can do is give them a negative comment. Usually sellers will do whatever they can, before you give them a negative comment.

I'd just use it for now, and order the right one. When you get it installed, put the earlier one back on ebay yourself.

The only factory part number I can find is for the power tow mirror.
Ford part number 2C3Z-17696-BAA, Dunno if that will help any. That number is for 05-07 super duty
