Thank you for a great service. A very easy to use website. Literally took a couple of minutes to get my code from start to finish. The code worked perfectly and your instructions were perfect. A bonus is you were half the price of other sites I looked at. I will definately use AWS again and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this site to anyone

Having replaced the battery on my Focus, them found that there was no radio code in any of the original sales documentation. Ford wanted 20 to get the code, which considering they had not supplied in the first place is a cheek. Once I found the serial no. then went on line to ASW and typed in the no. got a reply within a few seconds. Went out to the car inserted the code and bingo. Excellent service and for a quarter of the price. Well done. Thanks

Further information on decoding your BMW car radio.

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.
