Frans parts...good deals....

Yeah, I received what I ordered, quickly, with everything there.

BUT, when we finally got around to installing the 6spd gearbox, one of the mounting holes for the dog bone mount was stripped out majorly. We had to use an oversized threaded inserts to fix. Got our fingers crossed. I don't want to have to ask Franz to ship a new case, but I might have to.

Hi Frans, I sent you an email regarding transmission mounts for the O1E I bought from you. Looking forward to your response.

I don't suppose there exists a kit to convert a Mk6 Sportwagen from DSG to 6MT?

I am working my way through my second TDI swap. Both are Fran's European engines, transmissions or both. I have found that in working with him at Dutch Auto that you need to be patient as he is not always very quick with a response. However, your patience will be rewarded because he has done enough of these swaps to be very helpful and delivers the stuff we all need at a pretty reasonable cost. Thank you Frans

Just a note for everyone. SINCE these are EURO cars they often don't have the clutch pedal with the start lock feature. Thus they can be started in gear and launch the car forward causing injury or damage. Just a warning. Otherwise the kits work pretty well. You just have to remember they are used parts.

He has sent me the lockout switch. I just choose to never wire them.

Ok.... so I just got off the phone from speaking with Frans in The Netherlands. His email is having problems as evidenced by six of my emails to him getting bounced back. If you're like me and have been trying to get hold of him via email at info@dutchautoparts, he may not be receiving them.

Thanks for your call. I replied with another email. Did you get it?:)

Feb.14: Order invoice paid the day Frans sent it to me (5speed swap kit)
Feb.16: Follow up email sent to Frans -> no response
Feb.19: Second follow-up email to find out status of my order

I'm no stranger to online vendors on the different forums I'm a member of. DAP came well recommended...with several "my parts came in 5 days!" type of endorsements. Meanwhile I have yet to receive even a confirmation email in that same timeframe. Has anyone else had this type of experience with DAP?

We get a lot of emails each day, and we try to reply everyone asap. Your order has been processed and goes out today. :)

First off , I just want to publicly thank frans. I just received my rebuilt turbo and the craftsmanship is outstanding !! Awesome guy and price can't be beat.

To potential buyers: be patient. For the east coast there is a +7hr time difference that can make communication difficult at times. You're always better off calling because as you can imagine...a "small" but busy company that they are, it takes time to get back to people's emails plus do all the work they do and fulfill worldwide orders. Just plan ahead and get it before you're really needing it . He will come through.

Thanks again!




resized lol


Even came with a new gasket kit!

Is it a VNT15? Also how long in total was the time you ordered until it was in your hands?

sorry, I got them resized. yes vnt-15...
I paid on a friday at 5pm(neth. time), payment cleared by early the following week. I was told there would be a wait since there wasn't one in stock and ready to ship. It got delayed on monday because I had a miscommunication with them about adding to my order. Everything got cleared up and shipped out wednesday( late neth time) and arrived friday. So 2wks total.

Is it "quick"? ,no but you can't beat the price and expertise. You can get one quickly with a ebay turbo but GL with that lol. That's why I advised to plan ahead of when you actually need it. You have to remember that you aren't dealing with this big company with a warehouse to push product out, it's a "smaller" company that provides hand crafted products(rebuilt services ex: turbos and pumps)

Thanks! That's pretty quick given the distances and customs involved. I'm planning on a turbo replacement in my future - distant future I hope.

Do you know if the VNT mechanism is also refurbished? Replacing the CHRA doesn't fix that.
