I found this lovely unit just lying in the passenger foot well of a scrapyard F and I just had to give it a whirl, working or not.
I recalled a post by Dert here: What have you done to your MGF MGTF today? (Second Part)
and thought it was the same head unit, from memory. Obviously, I thought it might be worth having in the interests of originality. I remember him saying:
Sadly, the person before me had removed the original and fitted a JVC unit, the standard one, even second hand are about twice the price of the JVC unit due to it being the same as the BMW business unit. So, if any of you have one of the ones above (XQE 100) and are not using it, they are going for silly prices on fleabay
I duly paid my £15 (yes, massive amount, I know) for the unit and some other bits and bobs. I have since plugged the head unit into my F, and whilst it works, I am being asked for a 4 digit code to fully get it operative - I guess I was expecting such like.
So, does anyone here have the ability to generate a code using a Blaupunkt calculator or such like? - I've done a bit of Googling and I think I have all the required serials/VIN/model number etc - just need someone to work their magic and get the code if at all possible.
Any help getting this thing unlocked would be gratefully appreciated.
Many thanks in advance,
