    • ASR Engineering has been removed as a vendor



      ASR Engineering is no longer a supporting vendor at BimmerBoost. There are several reasons for this and this is being brought to your attention in order to prevent our members from incurring losses. There have been several issues with ASR that are simply inexcusable and we can no longer in good conscience endorse their business. The only reason ASR ever was a vendor here in the first place is due to a pre-existing arrangement with two members on the staff before this site came into existence. This arrangement was honored in good faith but simply, enough is enough, and the reasons why are below.

      You may have seen recently where user George Smooth posted his experience with ASR. This is just a bad situation in which Abid simply has shown no heart, doing absolutely nothing to resolve it. There is $3320 that Abid took for an exhaust that he did not deliver. If this was not bad enough, it has caused issues for George in his home country of South Africa. These issues prevent George from taking his family on vacation out of the country or ordering certain parts from overseas. All it would take to correct this is $100 and Abid won't even do that. To put it simply, Abid has no conscience. If it isn't bad enough he has stolen over three grand, he does not even have the decency to put up $100 to help George resolve his banking situation. Low class, despicable, and something we will not tolerate.

      We wish this was the only story, but it isn't. Some users may be familiar with GT3 Ranger who in good faith sent Abid his M5 to do a twin turbo project. Well, we have been in contact with GT3 Ranger from the beginning of the project and warned him that Abid could not deliver something so complex. Ranger pushed ahead anyway and now can not even get a hold of Abid after spending... well, not our place to say. We won't go much further as we do not wish to violate Ranger's confidence but obviously the twin turbo has not been completed and he ended up having to buy another M5 while this one collects dust. Abid promised him the world and did not deliver and Ranger simply has no choice but to eat the cost that Abid pocketed and has lost complete faith in this ever being completed or even getting any money back.

      ASR has been removed from M5board for scamming people on exhausts. ASR takes deposits, and does not deliver the product. Abid refuses to answer phone calls, return e-mails, or communicate in any fashion with those he has scammed or even anyone else for that matter. If you are in the Florida area you are likely safe as you can meet him face to face. But as you just read with George, if you are overseas, forget it.

      ASR Engineering is not to be trusted, they simply can't be. The customer service is poor, they have scammed our members, and simply are a bottom tier BMW shop if even that. Installing nitrous on a car does not make you a world class tuner capable of doing custom twin turbos on a BMW M5 S85 V10. I pointed out on M5board that I would not trust Abid to tune my radio and that this V10 project was beyond his abilities. For that, I was temp banned as Abid forced Gustav to do so ($) and I'm sure Gustav is preparing his apology. History has shown ASR's true colors and ASR will not be endorsed here. BimmerBoost will also pony up the $100 to resolve George's situation and if Abid has even a single honest bone in his body he will do the right thing. He has had since January of this year to do that though, so no one hold their breath.

        Screw the friendship , if it was a real friendship he would say `we aren't able` before starting project or atleast he would return your car and money back.Put yourself together and go straight o Police office and tell what they did.

        Yeah that can be done but it will cost more money and I'm not spending anymore on this failed situation. Right now I'm in the dumping mode. Salvage or part out stuff.
        I have someone who's interested in it as a salvage for his own project.
        No matter how I look at it or slice it, I'm a loser here ... BIG TIME.

        report the cars stolen, and say you have a witness that has seen them at xx location. Im sure there is something illegal about keeping the car even after you have attempted to get it back..

        No please I want to be clear. There has been no attempts to retrieve the cars.
        What has been going on is the shutdown of any and all communications. No response to any attempts to communicate. I have apparently been shutout. Why, I have no idea. So I'm done trying to communicate. I was understanding, tolerant, patient and a supportive friend. LOL
        I'm a fukin moron.

        your attempts to contact them would be enough to show intent on retrieving your car, and their lack of communication shows no intention of returning your car. but thats just the direction i would go, not saying you would or should. but im very vengeful person, and to me actions have consequences, and im the guy that pays someone back 2x, good or bad.

        sorry, i get heated on these types of things. /rant

        Abid doesn't deserve you as a friend, period. He abused your trust and took advantage of you. It is too late to change that, no point to keep kicking yourself.

        You and Junky just need to coordinate and get the cars and parts the hell out of there. There are some people in Florida on this board who can help.

        Here's a question, how many engineers (as in real, live M.E.'s with degrees from accredited schools) work for "ASR Engineering"? If the answer is zero, stop and do not proceed.
