Unbolt the radio, there are two little tabs on each end of the face of the radio. a small "pocket screw driver" ill pop them open. you'll see the tabs where you insert the screw driver. once those are popped open, then you will have acess to Allen bolts. one per side. unscrew each bolt (they wont come out of the radio, they just loosen). now, pull the radio out. I usually just pull via the tape deck slot. once its pulled out of the dash, write down the serial number stamped in the steel on the back. you do not have to unplug the radio, just write down the serial number. Go into your local BMW dealer and they can look up the serial and give you a radio code. the radio code i believe is 6 digits. turn the radio on, it will say "radio code". punch in the number code from the dealer. the radio will then become availble for regular use. if you punch in the number wrong too many times, the radio will be locked out, and you must leave the car running for 1-1.5 hours before it will release its self and allow you to attempt to enter the radio code again.

Contact BMW. You will more than likely have to have the serial number off the radio, which will require removal. You will need to take your registration for the car and ID with you for proof of ownership with you to the dealership. its a code like 12216

many service lights on the new 3 series you cannot reset yourself, this is a software error by BMW and they are aware of this but currently no fix is available, the only way to reset it is to have a BMW technician reset it with their special service equipment.

Do not roll over your BMW and you will not have this issue.
