Post two problems, radio code and water leakage

Hi people,
i'm new to the bimmer family. I recently bought a 530i 1995 model sedan. under the hood is a v8 5.4 litre, and its great to drive all that muscle, BUT i'm a baby crawling on all fours so can someone rescue me to my feet please.

PROBLEM 1, RADIO: my radio needs a code. this came about after i bought a new battery and fitted it in. everything went on smoothly and then came test drive, it was all systems go until i switched on the radio. my car's chassis number is "abmhe28080be43375" and if i've got my code correct, it 0529. the problem is how to enter it it. my cars manual has a different radio from the one in the car. i've a BMW BAVARIA C PROFESSIONAL RDS, front tape deck and a BMW pioneer 6 disc changer,

PROBLEM 2, WATER LEAKAGE: A warning sign, "COOLANT LEVEL" appears and i thought i just had to top up, but there was more to it when i opened the hood. somewhere to left side, just above the brake fluid drum is a series of pipes, and these a definitely linked to the radiator system nad the water smells coolant. so i refilled the coolant cannister and closed it, then started the car, water just comes out as if from a tap partially opened. within 20km or 9 miles or so i have refill. the pressureof the water coming out atleast indicates to me the water pump is ok, I THINK. please help, all i do now is wash my car, in and out, and start just to warm it up then leave it and drive off to work,with my nissan 1400...

everything else in the car is fine,,, well so far..
