yea that happened to me last week. There was no code card in my manaul organizer so I called 1 dealership and the bastards were charging me $70.00 (i think that was the price, maybe more) anyways, i called the other dealship more south of where i live and they did it for free. yes free!!! I just took it there and the guy pulled out my radio, took some numbers down and left for 10 minutes, came back and gave me the code. I was outta there in 15 minutes. So if i were you, call the bmw dealerships around your area and asked if there's a charge to get your radio code. This service by the way should be free, tell em to eat a fat d!@%@ if they charge you. hahahahaha good luck.
