I am sure that this is a factory fitted radio.You have a few options;
1/Sometimes the code gets written on the set itself.If you remove the radio check if there is 3 or 4 digit code hand written on it anywhere.
2/Check the handbook/service book.The code is usually on a credit card sized piece of paper.Sometimes this can be found in the handbook wallet,or sometimes the code can be written down by a previous owner in the handbook/service book.Also check any invoices to see if the code is on them.
3/Contact a Renault dealer (you will need the Vehicle details and the set serial number) and get the code from them.The only problem with this is they may charge you for doing this.
4/Send the set to a Car Radio Specialist and get them to de-code it(again they will charge you for this).
5/Either buy a new aftermarket set or see if there are any Genuine Radios on Ebay that come with the code included.These can sometimes be picked up cheaply if someone has uprated the radio and want to sell their old Genuine set.
Hope this helps.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
