Sat NAV DVD Eject Code?

I just turned 18, and my parents bought me a second hand E90 320i european version with 12k miles. Really nice car I should say, great for first one. Anyway, I just have one problem. I have the iDrive with the Sat NAV. The Navigation DVD is being inserted in the player. There is a sticker that says, that the Nav DVD is inside and the ejection is blocked. And it really is. When I press the eject button, the player asks me for a 4 digit code. Unfortunately, the place it was bought from, they do not know the code.
Do you have an idea what it might be, I mean is it a universal one or unique with every DVD? Or is it written somewhere in the documentation? I searched for it, but the manuals are in german So, if there is some kind of a solution, could you please tell it to me? If not, I will have to take it to the BMW Dealer, but unfortunately, now is Easter, so they won't work for 4 days, and I cannot wait
I have the Sat. Business, not the Professional.

Hmmm, I did a search out of curiosity and couldn't find anything.

Not to hijack the thread, but do we have this feature in the US? It would be a nice feature for when you leave the car at service, with a valet, etc. I don't really want anyone walking away with the disc.

Correct... providing it hasn't been changed by anyone.

It is a 'corporate feature'in Europe and if an individual wants this feature in the UK... well it a buy on extra and it has to be paid for... which IMHO is crazy as it thieves can break your window.. press the button, and Ebay it for $150.. no problem.

Luckily my dealer was really kind and did mine FOC.
