Take your radio out (Using an Allen wrench) there are 2 little doors on either side of your radio. Back out the recessed allen head screws till it stops and withdraw the radio out. Disconnect the radio wiring(no need to worry they only fit one way) take the radio to the dealer with your Reg. or title and ask the service advisor for the code. (they might try to charge you for the code. But just complain and say" that you have had many bmw and you've been comming to the dealer for parts for years now and it that how you treat me"!) that should get you the code (If you are a woman then wear something tight & Skimpy) same effect. put the radio back in and input the code...
You should be good to go.

It normally says CODEWAIT because wrong codes have been entered
The usual solution is to LEAVE SWITCHED ON....UNDISTURBED for as long as it takes to automatically reset itself.
This can sometimes be many hours as the waiting time doubles after each wrong code.However, normally , it is only an hour or two.

SOURCE: locked 318ti bmw in boot
go to your local BMW dealer with proof of ownership (registration document) and photographic proof of ID and they can order you a new key from BMW this will get you into the car as long as at least 1 door lock or the boot has the original lock.
