    • 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 don't think anyone is going to see it as a negative, times like this are when we pull together and try to help each other out. I do happen to know people who can get that car up and running again and will do so at cost to help you out. Whatever I can do to help, I would be glad to. There are some great guys on this board as well who are there for other enthusiasts.

        I do not doubt you guys will. The entire BMW community is pulling for you and no one wants to see Abid get away with this.

        Steve brother we're living this hell and anger.
        Guys let me tell you that Steve was rather kind in his detailed post. There is much much much more. The never ending stories were unreal. Trust us there's so much more.

        Oh btw today I was offered actually $12K for my once beautiful car. Click here to enlarge

        Oh dear....

        You can get a big chunk of that with the motor alone.

        As of late, not really, major customer service issues. In the past, sure, people were happy especially locals. He took advantage of people who were not local though.

        Although I can't say I understand what you guys are going through, I do wish you the best with this insane situation. Also, thanks for getting the word out about ASR's 'business' practices so hopefully no one else has to endure the trauma you guys have

        I just read through this entire thread. I am left speechless. I hope they get what's coming to them - I've heard nothing but bad things.

        I'm sorry for your troubles and wish you the best of luck - and thank you for the long posts. It definitely helps everyone and lets us rethink before we leave our cars in others' possession - regardless of how well we know them.

        Guys, it would actually help me sleep better if you just gave us a headsup saying that legal route is workIng. I can only imagine if it was me in your position... It's such a shame that all this happened and on top of this, you didn't have your car for 2 years.

        When I first bought my car, the community was quite excited about ASR... In retrospect, I'm glad they never emerged with a kit or any real products...

        Good luck!

        I hear you. There some days I'm so mad that proceeding with my professional reponsibilities become impacted. Trust as a physician this is a major issue. God knows I don't need another problem.
        What this guy did to Steve and I has been so difficult to wrap my head around. I've said it before, BETRAYAL BETRAYAL BETRAYAL!!!
        I look back and scrutinize all his comments and the bull just comes through. Back then at the time we were being "good friends" and giving a lot of latitude on matters, trusting and sadly believing all BS lame stories. You guys would laugh and be shocked at some of fairy tales.
        One time after become massively frustrated I put forward my first questions and challenges as to what and where are components for the project. The hollow outrage that was directed at me was unbelieveable. His exact words were "who the fvck do you think you are"!
        Even then I toned back so as to try and still hope to make it work. Then we progressive come to realize that there was NOTHING. Zero development of anything.
        When asked about components the patented answer was always, "it's at the machine shop".
        Yeah right ... bullcrap.
        We do wonder what the fvck he did with all the money??
        This is all downright WRONG and DIRTY.
        This is all the truth.

        That's some real f'ed up $#@!! I don't know what I would do if my car was in pieces like that. At this point it's not even about the cars, but the lost time without them and all the BS and headache that the owners had to go through. Hope everything works out!

        Exactly, the lies, the betrayal, and the lost time. Stringing them along for 2 years and I believe he even asked for more money at one point... wow.

        We all want this to get worked out so that Ranger and Junky get compensation and Abid is forced to pay.

        Thanks for the back up guys. Yes this all really really sucks the BIG one.. As Ranger said.. The things I expressed above are mere background and a way of at least laying a foundation as to how things began to unfold and how they began to play out.. So much more to this wild project......

        Well, when things pan out hopefully we can revisit and I can put together some kind of timeline and maybe sit down with you guys and go over this whole ordeal.

        The main thing right now is to make sure the legal route pays dividends.

        Just read the whole story of what happened, and wow I thought that I was a level headed and patient guy but damn you must be a $#@!ing saint or the next pope. After 6 months of no documented progress you can bet your ass I would have been waiting for the shop to open up in the morning with a bat in my hands ready to break Abids legs, and trust me if he opened up the shop doors and I found my car like that I would have set the damn place on fire with him inside it to burn.

        Glad to see that you guys finally got your cars out of there. I wish they were in better condition but hey that's the way the cookie crumbles. Now you will just have to take it from here and hopefully you guys will get your money back. Wish you all the best of luck. Keep us updated !
