• Pictures of the state M5junky's E60 M5 was in when removed from ASR Engineering for failure to compete 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.

        Tell him to ship the stuff then you will pay him once it arrives. Think about it this way... Put 4500.00 in a brown paper bag, pour gasoline all over it (93 octane of course), light it on fire, and watch it burn. That's whats going to happen with your money. Sorry... I know his products seem cool and all - maybe 3 years ago, but their not that cool anymore, and not worth.

        Hey... If you do talk to him again - ask when he is going to send mine and Juans money back? Ask him why theres so many people on the board that haven't received their products even after paying... Anyway good luck. I didn't even realize the guy was still open for business. Good luck...

        I called him and left a VM a bout a week before he called me back . He spoke on the phone with me for about 30 min and seemed legit . I remember seeing something on the net so before I placed the order I came to check it out . He offered to hollow out my headers for a good price and also said he would take care of me if I placed a order . I purchased a ASR gen 2 exhaust off a member and the sound/fitment is great I just figured everything else would be as well . Well now I have to just wait for another mod I can do or just be happy with a tune , intake and pulley ...

        Whilst you at it, if you do speak to him again remind him that he still owes me US$2,820.

        The sad part is it isn't half as bad as what you and Ranger went through.

        I hope you guys aren't letting him off the hook.

        Nothing I can speak of yet. Any one hear about that John guy from the carolinas? The guy that came on from a motor sports shop. The guy who got hosed for 80K... Wish he would post. I'd like to see how that's going. He had mentioned that there would be some crazy news that may break out of his case.

        Forget about your headers being hollowed out - your wallet will be hollowed out.

        Well that's for sure, but it makes me sick to even see someone get hosed for $10 from this guy.

        Don't think I have heard about John from the Carolinas, what is the story with that? $80k? Where is all this money going?

        Sorry thought it was under this thread. Go look at the m5board.com. It's under the asr twin turbo thread. Yeah there is supposedly a guy who got kicked in the nuts for 80k. This story is a beauty too. This guy "invested" in asr - then asr did their world famous disappearing trick... Check it out..
