I moved your thread over to the E36 forum. You should get more help here.

Nobody beside the dealer has access to the database of radio security codes. That said, the people at the dealer you spoke with are a bunch of crooks. They're supposed to provide that information for free (but you have to visit in person, with proof of vehicle ownership).

Take a good look through your manuals, there should be a couple of cards there with your radio code (it will be a 5 digit #). If you have entered it incorectly 3 times you must leave the radio on for 1 hour then try again...

Hope this helps

Assuming the PO kept the radio code cards in the manual, and didn't lose them.

He already said his wife tossed it. Try dialing other dealers, eventually one will give it out over the phone, I've done it plenty of times....

And absolutely don't pay for it.
