a dealer can contact Audi to lookup the code if you have the VIN of the car the unit was originally (first) installed in. Some don't like to do this because if the unit is stolen it's causing all kind of trouble. But it is possible...

I never received the code card on the unit I purchased on eBay Germany.

My unit is not locked or anything. Is there anyway to retrieve the code on my unit.

THERE IS NO NUMBER ON THERE THAT THE DEALER COULD USE TO GET A CODE FROM. I TRIED BUT NO LUCK.
THERE HAS TO BE A WAY

can't you get the serial number using the VAGCom even if the unit is locked?

I doubt that you can get into engineering mode with the unit locked and no, the serial number is not printed on the label. However, there are some units which had the serial number and/or code on a separate label but that's not original...
