Can BMS Tuner be Sold After Use? Or is it Car Specific?

I am looking to purchase a BMS Tuner for my 328i. If I do not like it, can someone else use it on their car if I sold it to them?

When I had a Mustang, I believe the tunes were specific to that single Mustang. Basically, you could flash the ECU only for your vehicle. And you could not do it on another vehicle.

Let me know!

Thanks!

I think there's a slight difference if you're running an N20 or an N26? I remember Terry (owner of BMS) specifically asking me if I had an N20 or an N26.
