Are you sure you need to input the spaces? the standard inquiry reply that outputs the serial uses spaces as padding, so even if you use serial "ABCD1234" the inquiry command is going to tell you
"            ABCD1234".

Do you have software that relies on the serial number and can tell the difference between spaces present and no spaces present?
