What's a 'Distinctive quality'? I've only heard of 'distinctive style' and it was +7. Did I miss something?
Is he human? If so, you should have an edge of 5.
His charisma should be 6, not 6 (9), so you have only 6x3=18 points in contacts.
You should have more knowledge skills. (Logic+intuition)x2=12.
If you get all your non-cultured bioware at used grade, you'll free a lot of nuyen. 63250 to be precise. That's enough to add used muscle toner 2 to your set and still leaves you a leftover of 15250.
You could spend 2 karma for drive ground vehicle skill and buy a car for that leftover.
As far as I remember,  you get 1 free technique when you buy a martial art.

I was confused on one point of are martial art qualities? Don't mean to side track this topic, but my read on R&G was that they are in their own category.
Thoughts?

Yeah, they have a separate category.

Alright. Changes based off of input:

You are correct in that it should be called Distinctive Style. My bad. It actually costs 5; I made a typo.

He's an elf; sorry, I should have clarified. His charisma is at 2 because he bought an extra point with karma.

.
 I made it (9) because of his pheromones; apparently that's not correct. He has 20 karma worth of contacts because he threw in 2 points of his own.

Hooray!

Good advice! I took it, kind of. I dropped the adrenaline pump entirely, cause it's a money and essence hog, and I switched the tailored pheremones to used. With the extra money, I purchased mustle augmentation and toner 2 and 3 respectavely (both used), upgraded bone density augmentation to 3, and bought a Suzuki Mirage. I replaced Forgery with Drive ground craft. The augmentation spread now looks like this:

Bone Density Augmentation (rating 3) (15,000) .9
Muscle Augmentation (rating 2) (46,500) .5
Muscle Toner, used, (Rating 3) (72,000)
Synaptic Booster (rating 2) (190,000) 1
Orthoskin (rating 3) (18,000) .75
Tailored Pheromones, used,  3 (69,750)

Wiz. I got Multiple Opponent Combat!

Thanks for the tips; keep 'em coming!  ;D

It must be just me because nobody apparently cares :) but wouldn't you need heavy weapons for the Alpha grenade launcher?

Yeah, a point there would be nice, but even now he can just default his rolls and get 7 dice.
Oh and one more thing - bike is ok but not as good as a car in the means of transporting an assault rifle. Just saying.

True. But there is a rigger in the car who's got an Ares Roadmaster; the party's going to mostly rely on that to stash their less concealable weapons. But you're right, a car would be ideal. But he can't afford a decent car and, come on; who drives a compact car? Not this guy. Save up for a Ferrari or something. A nice, sleek motorbike will do in the meantime.  :)

Hey man I believe you should get another Martial Arts technique unless I missed where you put it. The first 7 Karma gets you your first technique. The additional 5 karma gets you your second.
