    • Pictures of the state M5junky's E60 M5 was in when removed from ASR Engineering for failure to complete custom twin turbo setup

      Steve (M5junky) sent us these pictures with permission to post them. These pictures reveal the state his E60 M5 was in after having spent about 2 years at ASR Engineering. The car was sent there for a twin turbo built motor setup as most of you know and nothing was done. Well, nothing other than stripping the car the car down and leaving it a huge mess. The transmission was pulled and looks to be left stock. The motor was pulled and not built as agreed. The engine bay, well, you can see for yourself.

      There is much more to all of this and the legal wheels are turning. We do not want to get in the way or step on anyone's toes so we will simply let this play out. What people should be aware of is that tens of thousands were spent by M5junky and M5Ranger to receive their twin turbo setups on the E60 M5 only to be jerked around with nothing being completed and the money being pocketed. No refund has been issued as of this point and we will follow progress on the story as it develops.

I have decided to make a quick post since this ASR thing has started to heat up even more, and I felt I needed to at least let everyone know that there is definitely something going on with Abid and ASR Engineering Inc. Thanks to RT Turbo from bimmerforums.com for bringing this to my attention on this forum...

        The Information that I can divulge at this point.
        I have been doing business with Abid for quite some time, since around Nov 2006. We flew him up here since one of our customers had gotten word of the nitrous setups Abid was doing and wanted one for his car. I personally got to know Abid from that point forward, and had been doing business together with him since then, on both a personal and business level. I have gone down to Miami multiple times, have stayed with his family for a week at a time. He actually was a good friend. I got to know his wife, his kid, his parents, his brother, everyone. We would all spend time together when I would come down for business and I would stay at Abid's house, visit with his family, even go to birthday parties with the kids... Like-wise when he would fly up to do various work that our customers/friends wanted done. My house was open to him. We were almost like family. There was no reason in the world to believe things would end up the way they did. Abid really was a good engineer, and produced some great products. We even did do some succesful business together at the very beginning. But over time, things just took a turn for the worse. Among the other dealings that I had with him, (which I cannot discuss at this time), one issue that will hit a chord with some other members on this forum is that Abid also had my personal car for over a year and a half. They may have seen it also. A black 95 e36 turbo M3. Our company specializes in e36 M3 turbo systems, and I was trying to work with Abid to make some headway in tuning one of our latest turbo systems we were developing using a similar Vishnu piggyback software package Abid was using for the 135/335i turbo system upgrades he was developing. Needless to say, after months and months of phone calls, hearing excuse after excuse for various delays about one thing or another, I finally had to drive down to pick my car up from Abid's shop in March of last year. It was like he had become a different person, and could care less about anything but himself. It seems like I was not the only one being treated this way, having seen personally the other cars in Abid's shop that were supposedly getting "work done" on them as he put it. From that point forward, things went from bad to worse. There are many more issues between he and I that I have not discussed in this post yet, and one will be a bombshell to many M5 owners, but until our legal issues with him have been resolved, I cannot divulge anything further until after I have the go ahead from our legal advisors... but rest assured, to all that are in doubt, there is definitely something going on, and I feel for all the other people that have been involved and had problems with Abid or ASR Engineering Inc. Once I am able to discuss what has happened, I will post the rest of what has transpired, and would be happy to help out in any way I can with the others that are also caught up in this debacle...

        Best Regards from The CES Motorsport Team
        John

        Wish we could have seen how this ended up being resolved, if it got resolved at all.

        AFAIK it was resolved. Case was settled out of court. Former customer has his car minus mods he ordered and didn't pay for. No need to get into more detail than that. He hasn't spoken up about it for good reason.

        I was just curious because I saw a thread about an F10 M5 being worked on by ASR with a link to this thread (read the whole thing last night, just wow haha)

        ^Yeah, ASR's new play thing is an F10 M5. They will be developing all sorts of goodies for it. That, is for another thread though lmao.

        IDK if Juan/Ranger/ @Lock n Load still visits over here. He seems to be busy with his insanly sick GT3RS.

        He did post this up elsewhere 3 days ago though:

        "I've been on the Porsche side for a year and a half. After the total ASR fraud decided to focus on the GT3RS. Went with a reputable shop, Champion Motorsport, who built me a killer 4.2L bore/stroke engine and have been enjoying tracking this beast. Still have the M5 but currently it's just a sports sedan.

        Ranger (LRRP)"


        AFAIK he still has the same NEGATIVE outlook on ASR and would still gladly voice his opinion against anyone giving them opportunity to work on or with their car.

        Of course he would have. Regardless if the case went in his favor he would still have a sour taste in his mouth and spew $#@! about them. The fact is both parties lost from this whole debacle. I hope in the future to see/make a thread where each and every controversy with them is addressed. Of course that will never happen on this board, Sticky and Abid do not have a good relationship, so Abid will not vendor/post here I assure you unless his product and/or name is questioned. Libel is a big deal.

        No need to get into what they plan for that platform on this thread. When they are ready they will post a press release on the intake. The mod list will be more substantial than, 'an intake and an exhaust' I assure you.
