bentley e36 manual is from 1992-1998

I noticed that the Bentley E36 manual is avaialble for download, as I found elsewhere in the forum. However, the copy I downloaded goes up to only 1998, and my car is a 1999, namely a 318is. Are there any important differences between a 1998 318is and one from 1999?

A Model Year (MY) 1999 vehicle is an E46 usually. Some E36's were produced and sold as MY1999, and they are no different then the 1998 version. However check the sticker inside your door for the exact production year and month. The E36 was phased out, and the E46 brought in for 1999. The two are very distinct visually, so if yours looks identical to a 1998 one, then its an E36.

The radio code depends on the exact make and model of the radio. You will need this information plus the serial number off the radio if the code for your car has not been written in the owners manual.

Okay, your radio is an Alpine model CM5901J. You have a couple of options:-
1. Call your dealer and see if they will look up the code on their database for your car, or
2. Use an online radio code recovery service to recover the code from the model and serial number. (They usually charge around $20).
3. Try posting an inquiry on the ecoustics dot com forums - a member may take pity on you and give you the code.
I have some radio code recovery software, but unfortunately the only ones I have for Alpine radios are for Mercedes vehicles or from reading the placement of links on the circuit board of a different model to yours (which I have never tried).
The code should be a 5 or 6 digit number - it may have been written somewhere in the original owners handbook, written on a sticker on the inside of your glove compartment or pencilled onto the outside of the radio case if it has been removed previously.
Sorry I cannot help you further.

Call the dealership with your Serial Number. 90% of them will tell you for free. If your local dealership is gonna be a prick about it you can call anyone in the country and they should do it for free.
