Angry Borla Header Owners

Just wanted to see if anyone has tried to return their poorly designed header for the new more expensive redesigned one. I have tried to do so when I read Bret's thread. I was one of the people who got purchased one of the first batches. I have been in contact with Richard Amaro and Kelli Willmore and was given two choices.

First, wait for a call tag, then remove the header, send to back to Borla, wait for them to receive it, they ship a new one, wait until it arrives, try the install all over again!

Second, purchase ANOTHER header for $797.99 (original one was $335.00). Once I receive the new header, do the install again, give them a call and wait for a call tag. Once I receive the call tag, I return the original header. Then, when they receive the header, they will refund my $797.99.

MY problem, my WRX is my only ride and I have already sold the oem header. What am I suppose to do while I wait for the new header. Do I walk or catch the bus? Do I pay the $797.99 and wait for a refund? I paid $335.00 for the one that I originally purchased! I guess it's just the principle. I am pissed that I purchased and product that doesn't fit right and I have to go through all of this crap!

Anyone else gone through this??? What did you guys do??

Was there a warranty on the original? Is it still in warranty?

Buy a GT-SPEC Gen. II for $485 - return the orignal Borla under the warranty if the warranty included a refund.
