SOURCE: 1997 bmw 328i radio code
It will be with your owners documentation packet that includes the operating manual on a card in the radio guide booklet ( I just leave one in the glove compartment. The bimmer comes with two plastic cards displaying the radio unlock code for your radio. If you don't have or can't find the code in the radio booklet/packet, then you can get the code with your VIN (vehicle identification number) through a BMW dealership or a BMW Technician with access to the list. There are even Members of BMW forums that will provide your code via the VIN, but either way this will only work for the original radio (hopefully yours hasn't been replaced).
I bought a replacement radio for my 750 and I wrote the code down in several locations and I suggest you do the same when you get yours, as it's no fun guessing at it as you get three tries and have to leave the radio sit without power for over an hour before it will let you enter another code again and there are 1.000 possible codes.

If the radio is displaying code wait, or wait, then the ignition and radio must remain on for 1hour. I would contact a dealer within the USA and provide them with your radio serial number. The serial number can be displayed in the radio by pressing and holding down the "M" button while turning on the ignition.

Go back to the dealer that told you the wrong number ! I have one and I am currently living in the Middle East but the car was brought from Europe... they have access and can track it down... Tell them that is the wrong code and not acceptable service...I asked to speak to a service mgr and they got it to me.. are you going to have your car serviced there ?? That's the point of paying for dealership service... so they can supply GOOD service and getting you the proper code counts...

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.
