You cannot recode these radios-either they work, or they don't. Best thing to do is return it, get your money back, and buy another head unit.

You just lost all credibility after I read this. I've owned a number of E30's and E46's-and I hold E30's in very high regard-but more 'confortable' than an E46? No.
