Please help Radio code for BMW C33 radio

Hi Guys,

I am in problem here... i disconnected the battery without knowing it will ask me the radio code, i don't have the radio code... i bought this car last year, so i pulled out my stereo and able to find the serial number on it.
Its C33 and the serial no : AL6BDUT0449392
If anyone here can help me out with the CODE i would be more than happy and would truely appreciate your help.
I called the dealership, they are asking $150 for it, i am not in a condition to pay this amount as i got hit by this recession.
Please help me out with the CODE folks...


Thanks

Couldn't the previous owner provide you with the code? For obvious reasons, only authorized dealers etc. can do that, and then only after seeing proof of ownership.

no, i was not aware of any radio code, i don't know earlier that i do require radio code so i never asked for it. I sent the email to previous owner and he replied that he don't know anything about it.

Do you have the original Leather owner's manual case? Because the code card was in mine.....

I am very suprised that the dealer would charge you any amount of $$$, let alone $150.00 dollars.....Did you try calling other BMW Stealerships?

I don't know if you are wanting to keep the stock radio in the car.....but there is always the option to upgrade.....although I did not lose my radio code, I still wanted to upgrade to a ipod ready radio, so I did.....Crutchfield makes this easy with a free radio harness to swap the radio in with ease....free installation directions & free shipping....example:

JVC KD-PDR30 CD receiver at Crutchfield.com

johnny,

p.s. you won't need the code anymore, because that is just for the stock radio only.....& you upgrade..
