BMW car radios will normally contain a 14 digit serial number which can be found either printed on a label or engraved on the side of the unit.
These serials are only visible once the BMW radio has been removed from the vehicle.
Examples of serials include:
Never take the serial number from any printed paperwork or user guides, since this may not match the actual BMW radio fitted to the car. Instead, take the serial number from either a label or an engraving on the top or side of your BMW stereo, to ensure the supplied BMW radio code is accurate.
Using our BMW 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.
