When I replaced my alternator I was forced to deal with the security whether I liked it or not.
First I rang the local BMW dealer who are service agents for Rover hoping they'd have the code on record. They didn't, but said to try Roverland in Auckland - the place my car was originally purchased from. Fortunately they had the security code on record otherwise it would've cost me a $40 fee for them to retrieve it.
I haven't taken out my stereo unit (yet), so wouldn't know if the code is written on the back, but it seems unlike.
I have the Philips Harmony unit, which is mediocre & have plans to either replace it with the Symphony unit or get a new head unit altogether.
