Thoughts?
That sounds like a great idea but the legality of such a proposition may be questionable? Why not buy legitimately, copy it then load it on to the system then sell it on eBay. Place a link to the sale on the forum and let members buy it for slightly cheaper ($50 off?) then it will only cost the difference between bought and sold price.
I bet there is some way that BMW prevents the update from being used more than once.
