E82 / E87 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by a naturaly aspirated inline 6 in the 128 or the turbo twin power inline 6 rocket sled 135.

This is the 1er forum. Would recommend going to the 5er forum for your particular car (i.e. E39 or E34 etc.).

I'm assuming you know how to remove the radio( to get the radio id #) and the only problem is getting the code. It should only take them one minute to get the code once you give them the radio id. You should be able to do this over the phone. If you dont have the radio id and need help removing the radio PM me.

And yes, J is correct this is the 1er forum try the E34 forum for better responses.
