    Depending where the phone holder is you might get away without needing to unplug it, otherwise it's either some cash for the dealer or I think some eBay guys provide a service of (somehow) getting the code for a small fee.

    Found a picture jojo posted a while back that makes it absolutely stupid that dealers or anyone else can profit from providing the radio code.

    Ive removed mine countless times and refitted without the need to recode it, also had my battery disconnected, i believe once youve entered the code once you will not have to re-enter unless you change to a different standard unit
    Mods done: interior: Light to dark conversion, To Do: Carbon trim, carpet to be replaced, rear window retrofit. Exterior: Resprayed in Skoda's Rallye Green, 18" RS4 reps fitted, xenons, LED sidelights/NumberPlate lights, B Pillars wrapped in carbon. To Do: Lowering 35mm all round, tints, Tuning: Yet to do exhaust/remap/ egr delete etc..

    The vast majority of Audi OE radios (and sat navs) remember the VIN of the vehicle they were first fitted into, when powered up they check the VIN of the vehicle they are now in and if it matches they don't ask for the code.
