    • 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.

        the only good thing to come of this, and i know it is of little consolation to ranger and m5 but look how this has brought the community together! People offering spare parts, their condolences, and well wishes that Abid gets the legal end of karma! It just shows that we as a community look out for each other, and hopefully stops people like this in the future!

        Hahah, yes, you had to fly Abid out and pay all his expenses.

        For a dry nitrous install? Seriously?

        All I know is I would not be able to maintain your composure.

        In retrospect, yes, warning signs were there but you trusted and got burned. Being an honest person simply means bad people are willing to take advantage of you. I get very angry with humanity in general when I think about all the hurtful things people will do to one another over money. Keep your chin up, there are worse things in life. This will get resolved!

        After all that Steve and I have been put through with this debacle, I for one have come to truly hate the M5 I once loved so much.
        Our money was taken and our cars are trash. Steve's M5 is much much worse. His car is in literally in pieces.
        Steve how would you define the issue with the Brembos you paid for? You paid for them over a year ago and the Brembos do not exist.
        This is so wrong on so many levels.

        Well do you plan to sell the car as is or repair it? You have one other M5 currently, correct?

        I know Steve has spoken with Gintani but not sure what you plan to do. Matt@Camer-Toe is a quality option...

        What makes you hate the car so much? Just this one in general because it reminds you of all the bad stuff that has happened? Or from now on you dont want to ever mod a car again??

        I think it just represents a painful period he wants to move past.

        Yes I do have a black M5 right now. Hell bought it because I missed my white M5 so much. It was about after 8 months into the "bogus TT project". I felt the black M5 would be my DD while keeping the TT M5 as an occasional special car. God I was so stupid.
        What to do with the "project M5" will depend currently on legal matters. Juggling the options. Also to try and feel better and distract me from this debacle I've focused the black M5 and GT3RS right now. Have been tracking the GT3RS and have some kicka$$ ideas cooking with Champion Motorsport.

        I have friends at Magnus Motorsports here in Long Island if you are ever interested in coming up this way. Or my former employer Rudtners Racing...

        If you ended up selling it as is, it would be a sweet project for me to pick up..that is, if I could ever get it running again.

        I think I remember seeing some pics of the black M5, you have some mods on that as well if I recall. Would you mid posting up some pics of it in the 5 series section?

        Stop modding? Oh no! Obviously I must deal with the proper people.
        I still love the E60 M5, as I have another one now but just this particular white M5 that's been defiled is the one I've come to hate. Mainly from an anger point of view.
        Like I said, there are hot plans cooking for the GT3RS. The Guard LSD and R&P are awesome. Hugh difference on the track.
