      Would someone be able to help me retrieve the security code from the following : VWZ4Z6L3107723F. I did not receive the code when I purchased the car. Thank you.

      Call the dealership and they can look it up. You should have received the code from them when you picked up the car.
      Current: 2012 Manual Jetta SE w/Convenience (Vanilla version...for now)
      Previous: 2007 Wolfsburg with Euro Lights/Back Fog (Amber Club), DVD/NAV/BT, Osir Orbit v3, etc., etc.

      Yeah, if the dealer did not write it in your manual then you will need to call them for it (free). They were supposed to record it in the log from when your car was prepped. If they did not do so (like with my car) then they will need the serial number from the radio (on side of radio). You can also retrieve the serial number from the VCDS auto-scan of the car.

      I have heard of dealers charging money for radio code look up. This is just dealers trying to screw people out of money (as usual). The code can be looked up for free by typing the vin and radio serial number into Elsa.

      Mine wasnt on the card either... If you remove the radio from the dash, there is a 2-3 inch sticker that says the code... it is 4 digits between the asterisks... ill show u a pic:

      Most radios do not have that sticker on them as doing so would make stealing it and being able to use or sell it easy as hell.
