RICA PPC...Sold the R but still have the RICA PPC. Can it be used on other Rs? I know sometimes it is VIN specific, but RICA told me it may not even work the first time and an update may be required. So basically I am wondering if I am able to sell the PPC to someone else and give them my account to RICA PPC?<p>Thanks,<p>JAM

It can NOT be used to tune another car with a different VIN. You should sell/include your PPC with the sale of your car.

FV-QR

I would say contact BSR and ask them. I recall a couple of months ago a blurb on the BSR website that they were buying back PPC devices or something to that effect. I saw it but did not really read it thoroughly so don't hold me to it.<p>They made the device so it's worth a shot.
