lemme get right on that. There actually used to be a company, ASR, that put nitrous on M5s with good results, but then they started scamming people hardcore.

Somehow, I don't think putting nitrous on an M5 seems like a good idea.

The only think I think I'd want to do, provided I had umlimited money, is the Dinan stroker. It is not the most power you can get, but it keeps with the character of the car. 620hp is enough anyway, right? However that is $30k + labor and I don't have unlimited money.

I'll get more power when I buy another car. That simple.

have an asr stage 3 m5 that i recently aquired. is it normal to have no filters in the air boxes. took it to the dealer and they said it had none. they put some stock paper ones in threre. is that going to effect the kit in any way. seems like response is slower on acceleration. any info on this or the kit would be awesom cause i dont know anything about the car. the asr site is very vague. i havent even ran the nos yet, i wanted to know how reliable this kit is before i go spraying the hell out of it?
El oh el.

Is this what you mean by scamming people?

no, and I am pretty sure taking the filters out is a common mod. But it could be different filters. I am not sure, I've never looked into it. Shorty's dad's has some kind of filters removed.

by scamming people I mean they took like serious serious coin from two people to build them twin turbo cars, never followed through, kept/spent the money, and I don't think the cars were ever returned. Additionally, they also took pre-orders from exhausts that were never delivered. They also ****ed some guy from south Africa or something royally by never delivering his exhaust, so his government thought he was laundering money.

ASR Engineering is no longer a supporting vendor at BimmerBoost. There are several reasons for this and this is being brought to your attention in order to prevent our members from incurring losses. There have been several issues with ASR that are simply inexcusable and we can no longer in good conscience endorse their business. The only reason ASR ever was a vendor here in the first place is due to a pre-existing arrangement with two members on the staff before this site came into existence. This arrangement was honored in good faith but simply, enough is enough, and the reasons why are below.

You may have seen recently where user George Smooth posted his experience with ASR. This is just a bad situation in which Abid simply has shown no heart, doing absolutely nothing to resolve it. There is $3320 that Abid took for an exhaust that he did not deliver. If this was not bad enough, it has caused issues for George in his home country of South Africa. These issues prevent George from taking his family on vacation out of the country or ordering certain parts from overseas. All it would take to correct this is $100 and Abid won't even do that. To put it simply, Abid has no conscience. If it isn't bad enough he has stolen over three grand, he does not even have the decency to put up $100 to help George resolve his banking situation. Low class, despicable, and something we will not tolerate.

We wish this was the only story, but it isn't. Some users may be familiar with GT3 Ranger who in good faith sent Abid his M5 to do a twin turbo project. Well, we have been in contact with GT3 Ranger from the beginning of the project and warned him that Abid could not deliver something so complex. Ranger pushed ahead anyway and now can not even get a hold of Abid after spending... well, not our place to say. We won't go much further as we do not wish to violate Ranger's confidence but obviously the twin turbo has not been completed and he ended up having to buy another M5 while this one collects dust. Abid promised him the world and did not deliver and Ranger simply has no choice but to eat the cost that Abid pocketed and has lost complete faith in this ever being completed or even getting any money back.

ASR has been removed from M5board for scamming people on exhausts. ASR takes deposits, and does not deliver the product. Abid refuses to answer phone calls, return e-mails, or communicate in any fashion with those he has scammed or even anyone else for that matter. If you are in the Florida area you are likely safe as you can meet him face to face. But as you just read with George, if you are overseas, forget it.

ASR Engineering is not to be trusted, they simply can't be. The customer service is poor, they have scammed our members, and simply are a bottom tier BMW shop if even that. Installing nitrous on a car does not make you a world class tuner capable of doing custom twin turbos on a BMW M5 S85 V10. I pointed out on M5board that I would not trust Abid to tune my radio and that this V10 project was beyond his abilities. For that, I was temp banned as Abid forced Gustav to do so ($) and I'm sure Gustav is preparing his apology. History has shown ASR's true colors and ASR will not be endorsed here. BimmerBoost will also pony up the $100 to resolve George's situation and if Abid has even a single honest bone in his body he will do the right thing. He has had since January of this year to do that though, so no one hold their breath.
If you feel like reading, rei.

I laughed at "having" to buy another M5.

I feel bad for Ranger. He was a big ASR fanboy on M5board. He had their nitrous on his white car, along with exhaust and software. His white car is on his exhaust vids. The nitrous might have been moved to the black car at some point, but I am not sure. Anyway, Ranger defended ASR at pretty much every turn while people questioned the TT build. Sucks he got this in return.

Bravo on the price. I just spent that much on a 2010 Prius for a family car to go along with my 330xi. If I had a chance at a $28k M5, my wife and baby would be riding the bus today.
edit- Also, how did you meet the seller? I read through the first few pages and didn't see.

I dont understand this statement. Thats a great price depending on mileage. 2006 M5 can easily go for close to 40k.

Feather I know you had it for a little while now but its nice congrats keep it clean.
