I've never personally seen a quality timing belt break ... shucked teeth from high miles, yes.... broken, no ... this is the second Roth belt I've seen absolutely broken .... and judging from the lack of wear on the bold "Rothenbacher engineering" () stamp it had just a few miles prior to failure

That's what I've often said about him. I'm honestly surprised someone hasn't shanked him in a dark alley somewhere....

If I was dumb enough to put one of his belts on my car, I'd be dumb enough to shank him for it after it blew up 5k miles later.

The problem is, I suspect a lot of people blame VW, instead of his C.R.A.P.

"VWs are unreliable, I got the timing belt replaced and it let go 5k miles later!"

You'd be surprised how many "smart people" buy cheap parts.

Back in August 2007 I purchased a "rebuilt" TD IP from Prothe on eBay. I installed it on my newly rebuilt 1.6L engine. It worked for about 2 minutes, then started to rev uncontrollably. I was able to shut it down before the engine self-destructed. I returned the IP (my dime) expecting a full refund. After two weeks, I still had not received a refund. I sent several emails that were ignored. Needless to say, I was furious. Any reputable parts dealer would have been falling over themselves to make it right or at least communicate promptly; Prothe did neither. Thank goodness for eBay and their policies. Not 5 minutes after I filed a complaint with eBay, I had my refund. So he was watching, and had obviously received my emails requesting a refund but chose to ignore them. It was at that point that I decided never to do business with this man again. Of course, with all the aliases and websites, it's hard not to run across his web pages while searching the web for various parts.

He put his face on his site! Doesn't that lend credibility?

Please do not post live links to his web sites. Please edit your post or one of the moderators will do it for you. The more sites Google finds with links to his sites, the higher his sites will show up on Google searches for VW parts. He does not need us to do his advertising. BTW: Hansautoparts -dot-whatever is not a new site for him, it is listed in other places in this thread (like post #1).

Have Fun!

I've bought a few non critical parts from there without much issue, PCV puck the tube from the block, a engine mount for a buddies VR.

I would never buy parts that could cause catastrophic failure to the car or my life from him. But to save a good chunk over dealer parts for some simple pieces sure.
