Wanting to instal Porsche/Becker head unit

Hi looking for some advice before I dive in and do the wrong thing!
My 1999 c4 cab has had the head unit replaced and I’m wanting to swap it back to something that looks original and will connect to the cd changer. 
I think that cdr22, 220 or 32 would be suitable?
Im considering a CDR32 on eBay it’s sold with no code, is this a problem or is it getable? 
If anyone has any they would like to sell me know. 
Thanks 
Jonathan

    My radio code decoder should work with a CDR32, but I don't recall using it for one.

    The CR220 and CDR220 (and 210 models) are US specification, and have different tuner frequencies, so no good for the UK.

    Do you mean CDR23?  You originally said CDR32.  If it is a CDR23, it has the fibre optic connections, and won't work on a 1999 996.

    If it is a CDR32, the unlock code should be 1024.

    Seems the CDR32 I purchased was from a 2004 Boxster and had a fibre optic connection, I’ve swapped it for a CDR22 should plug straight in.
