    Radio code

    Hi, i have a symphony 2 stereo/multi cd player in my audi a3 and has a cd problem, iv purchased a replacement head unit from ebay but has no code, i spoken to a mate who works at a vag dealer and he says he cant get it without the car details which i dont have.

    is this correct? is the stereo now useless to me now or can i get the code another way?

    thanks

    He is correct, Audi dealers require 'proof of ownership' so they'd ask for a copy of the V5 or the VIN of the car.

    You can get the code loads of other ways, just Google radio codes and you'll get loads of websites.

    Not entirely true tbh, he could, being a mate that works at a dealer, login & get the code for you just using your vin & the radio AU serial number, but he may be little anal

    I stated YOUR vin, so you dont need original car info.
