Re: Question re: Radio security codes

I bought my 92' 100 V6 with 23,500 miles on it from this lady who rarely 
drove it and of course she didn't remember where she put the radio code, 
she was joking she put it in such a safe place she forgot where it is. To 
make a long story short, I called University Audi in Seattle, they told 
me they could get me the radio code if I brought the car in since they 
need to pull the radio out and look at the serial number so that they could 
look it up from some database. I took my car in for service and they got 
me the radio code. At first the service rep. said they wanted to charge me 
$10 for it but I told him the assistant manager told me over the phone that 
there would be no charge so he apologized and took the item off my
