How to remove a Boxster Radio?

I have recently bought an Alpine stereo system for my Boxster. I was given some keys by the retailer but they didn't fit so i returned them, they didn't have the correct ones for my stereo as the holes for the keys are horizontal not vertical.

I then went to Halfords and they tried about 20 pairs of keys to remove the unit, still no joy! Has anyone got any advice on this? I am desperate to fit the stereo but cant get the original out!!!

You can get them directly from Becker or from Suncoast (probably Sunset also) for about $6.00. Not sure about in UK.

Someone said if you called Becker they'd send them for free, but when I passed that on to a local she told me they wanted money.

Hope your car doesn't have MOST system. Started in 03.

Edit: Oh, and WELCOME!

I have a set you can have for free. Replaced my factory radio with a JVC last fall which uses totally different keys. Sent you a PM (private message) with details.
