do not take the serial from a user guideNever take the serial number from any printed paperwork or user guides, since this may not match the actual Audi radio fitted to the car.  Instead, take the serial number from either a label or an engraving on the top or side of your Audi stereo, to ensure the supplied Audi radio code is accurate.

Further information on decoding your Audi car radio.

Using our Audi stereo decoding system, you are not only saving money, but also time and the hassle which is involved. Most vehicle main dealers require you to book in your vehicle and take the car and proof of ownership along before they apply for the radio code.
Usually the code will be based on your vehicle registration or Chassis number which can mean you are not getting the code for the current unit fitted to the car, especially if the radio has been replaced at any stage in its lifetime.

There are a number of reasons why a radio code based on the vehicles chassis number or registration may not work, these include:


At Radio-Code, we provide stereo codes based on the unique serial number of the car radio, regardless of what it was fitted to originally.  Our stereo codes have proven to be more accurate than main dealer's because of this.



What our customers have to say...

Great service, instant code and good price. Thanks. Andy Leonard


Just wanted to say thanks for your awesome service!! Having completely fluffed entering the code I received on line (wrong serial no. given by myself and wrong method of entry to boot) I gave your office a call expecting the usual computer says no... it's against our t&c's etc. regarding changes to info supplied on line so you'll have to purchase another code. Instead I received a very refreshingly polite & down to earth response along with additional advice on code entry method for my radio model. All sorted in less than 5 minutes! In my line of work I spend a lot of time dealing with call centres etc. If only I could I'd send you a list of them to go in and show them how it's done! You have genuinely restored my faith in after sales customer service! Regards, Chris Heard.. Chris Heard
