As far as I know, if you prove you own the car, a small charge (sometimes it is given free) you will receive the code. If there is any cost I would ask the dealer to foot the bill as seeing you just bought the car.

Yes, try to get the dealership you bought it from to pay. A BMW dealer is the only one who will have the code, though, so you are stuck getting it from them no matter what.

what to do is take out the radio and get all the info make,model and serial# and take that info to the dealer.they won't charge you anything.what it is their are charging you for the labor taking out the radio from the dash.
