I recently sold my 02 rsx radio on ebay, and wanted to include the
code. I found a couple of websites that will supply you with the codes
for a price, typically 12$ or so. Google them if a dealer isn't handy.
In the end I just took a drive down to the dealer, got it for free.

What are the URLs *you* found? Are they legit, or Warez-type sites?

http://www.radio-code.com/ seems to be the only one coming up when I
did the search just now - entering "acura radio codes" turns up several
hundred hits, perhaps I imagined there was more than one commercial
site. It looks fairly legit, but you'll note that I wasn't willing to
test it. It wouldn't be a problem to do this sort of thing
legitimately, and someone in the auto business already who wanted to
make a little extra change could have set this up easily enough.

Thanks. I've emailed them with a series of questions in an attempt to check
their legitimacy. I suppose they could just be a stereo/alarm installer
outfit.

Even if they're fishy, I might still include it in the FAQ, with a big
warning that I can't determine if they're legit or not.

I emailed that site asking a few simple questions:
1) How is it that you are able to obtain these codes?
2) Are you an authorized Honda/Acura dealer?
3) How do you determine that a code requester is the legal owner of the
radio?
4) Where are you located (state, city)?
5) Do you operate a brick-and-mortar operation under another business name?

So far all I've got back is an "only the owner can answer those questions"
reply, and the owner has not yet responded. In the same reply they asked me
to add a special link to the FAQ so their Google rankings would rise. (I
didn't add the link).

I'm not prepared to assume they're legit because they have absolutely no
way of knowing if you're the legitimate owner of the radio. You could swipe
somebody else's radio, pay the site for the code and resell the radio to an
unscrupulous body shop.

What I also discovered just today is that Acura dealers (in Canada anyway)
have a policy of NOT charging you to retrieve your radio code, provided you
show up with the necessary documentation and numbers and they don't have to
pull the radio. Cool or what?

Yea, they sound pretty bogus. I wouldn't add them to your faq if I were
you. Just another con artist trying to make a few cents off of suckers.

Definitely cool! My recent experience along this line was a very
positive one - I even offered to pay them after they gave me the
number, but they didn't want it. It took the parts guy all of about 35
seconds to find the number on his computer.

Now if we could just convince acura to put decent radios in the rsx's...

I did add them, but as part of a warning (and no active link).
