    • 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.

This story is a beauty too. This guy "invested" in asr - then asr did their world famous disappearing trick... Check it out..
        There have to be enough people they have $#@!ed by now (people with money mind you) that this is coming to an end. Even if Abid doesn't have all that much I'm sure there is at least something to take from him. This money can't just disappear into thin air.

        Go to page 9 on this thread, post #222. This was another absolute fraud case.
        As it turns out on my "sad M5" there were even subframe parts missing. After revue of the car I am missing many parts. Steve and I were royally fvcked (Steve worse). As I've stated, the worse feeling of all was betrayal. We thought he was a "friend".

        Yep, that's right, it's there.

        It is what it is, I'm sorry it worked out this way. I just hope you guys get justice.

        LOL I almost cut this guy a pretty sizable check to get started on a turbo upgrade for the N63. He has an X5 with upgraded turbos(pretty sure that ain't true but that's what I was told at the time) and he is only a few block from where I grew up in miami. I luckily saw the threads on M5board and pulled out. Crazy what some people will do for $.

        M5board is the reason why a lot of these guys are out 10's of thousands of dollars.

        Fortunately we put up the true story and now M5board had no choice but to show what was going on. I still feel M5board is partially responsible for this mess.

        Still in litigation guys. I have a deposition scheduled for sometime in the next month or so, but needless to say, it is still in the works to try and get a judgement. I wish I could tell you more, but that is all I can say at this point. But we're still after him 100%!!! I can assure you that!

        Thanks for updating us. I'm glad he isn't just being let off the hook.

        I'm amazed he is still in business and even more amazed people are still giving him business.

        That is great to hear. Keep at it, "pitbull mentality", bite down and don't let go.
        My father's terminal illness and eventual death had completely taken my focus off my case but as I settle all the issues, well as they say, it ain't over yet. Also Steve's coming too. Lets keep his people busy and force expenditure of money.

        Hey "oddjob" what are you doing ... recon for ASR?

        sorry to hear buddy, a death in the family is never easy. and no im not doing recon, what recon would that be? ces shared no info on the case, as they should, other than he is close to a disposition. im not affiliated with them other than having some of their products and like his mechanic (no homo lol). i dont know why you continue to disbelieve my handle is truly who i am, i am not a voice for asr, nor am i trying to hide this thread, if anything i bumped it with my post. the fact of the matter is asr has a bunch of customers who got handed a bad deal, this should be public, i just happen to know some of your back story and shared it, i have no hard feelings toward you sir and wish you have the same sentiment.

        We do not know each other for sh!t. Yet you come on here and spew the lies you were fed as if you knew me. "i just happen to know some of your back story and shared it". How fvckin dare you! You do not know sh!t about me nor have we ever spoken yet you have the marginal intelligence to be a WEDGE (def. simplest form of a tool). You have zero credibility and I have no respect for an individual who talks out of his a$$, not knowing the facts and truth.
        You can keep your hollow false sentiments and NO I do not feel the same sentiments because i am not a hypocrite.
        Go be ASR's friend. The day will come when you will be betrayed.

        I thought I was done with you but you keep opening your oral orifice on the subject of which you are clueless of the truth.
        Sh!t with you around it isn't worth being around here.
        Done, end of story with you, WEDGE.

        I appreciate the comments from the other members.

        Juan, Be cool man. oddjob is respectable person. There was a story about someone who was rubbed by ASR as well and oddjob was there to help him. You don't like him just because he's a costumer of ASR? it's a bit understandable that you don't want anyone deal with people who rubbed you, but it's not a good reason to act like this.
        the people you should blame are Abid because he's an ass hole. And yourself. no offense, but you should have listened to people who were pointing to ASR's bad reputation. all of a sudden people who were installing Nitrous became able to make Twin Turbo M5?

        I'm so sorry to hear about your father. It's really hard to lose a family member, i've experienced it.

        BTW no sign of @M5Junky here, so BUMP lol

        Best Regards,
