radio out--where's the serial number?!

Title says it all. Any ideas? Someone wrote on the radio either "7/2/94GECAL" or "712194GECAL" followed by "87BMW528" followed by "6-17-92"

Any ideas how many digits the serial numbers are?

Thanks everyone.

Sorry no serial # but just curious......why not just replace existing (older) unit with a newer unit (extra features; MP3,etc..)?

I had to replace the after-market (plus additional amp and 10 disc cd changer) system because it was 'shorting out' electrical system of my 86' 528e.

It was a chore to re-install (no wiring harnesses or instructions) an older radio/cassette I got from the local U-Pull-It. Not all buttons/cassette worked as it turned out.

I had plan to replace this older unit with a new unit before I sale the car ...sooner than expected.
