great vendor or not my experience with them was far less than great, they said they cannot get the new injection pumps anymore but they still have them listed as available on the website, if you dont have it dont list it for sale period.

I'm sure it's a situation where his supplier is out of stock.. If it's no longer available (discontinued etc..) it wouldn't be on the site for sale still..

My local dealer can't give me an ETA on that particular new part number either.. Just said it's on some sort of backorder.. I can have a reman on Tuesday though LOL..

Well, add me to the list. I bought a Beetle from a guy who had one of their turbos professionally installed 1000 miles ago & it sucked up all the oil up & spat it out thus seizing my engine. Pissed is a mild way of explaining how I feel.

Oh, but they did offer to replace the turbo... not that I'd consider putting it in another engine of mine.

I've added a handful more from Proethe to the masterlist on page 1. He's quite slippery:

WOW prothe's business is less than 15 minutes from where I live. Glad I found this thread. Even happier I didn't buy anything from them. Bumping this back to the top for more visibility.

People who solely shop price will get what they pay for. I can't fathom how he can stay in business.

Simple. He buys garbage in bulk on Alibaba.

$150 - $230 per turbo depending on specification and quantity: http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/73...40_721164.html

One year ago I purchased a rebuilt VW ALH Turbocharger from him,had it installed by my trusted VW mechanic and I'm happy to say that the turbo works very well. Checking his feed back on eBay, it shows 68 negatives out of 8471 transactions,which amounts to less then 1% in total.Most car part suppliers with that many sales,have about the same amount of negatives.Just to make it clear,I don't know the guy,I live in Western Canada and gain absolutely nothing by defending this company.

Look a bit deeper into what type of items he sells the most... the non-mechanical items (cards, decals, etc.) would never result in any calamitous failure that would engender serious disputes...

Caveat Emptor.

In addition, a lot of people leave feedback when they receive a part. Unfortunately, you can't change that feedback down the road if the part fails.
