430 headers

It appears to me from research, a technical bulletin, and several posts on this and another forum that any 430 between 05 and 07 will need factory headers replaced at a substantial cost. In what cases would fall under factory warranty?, I'm concerned that this forces me into an 08; which could be a budget buster. Eagerly awaiting your thoughts.

Are you in the US?

If so the header replacement is mandatory to be repaired under warranty for I believe 8 years 80,000 miles.

The cost of replacing headers is not that expensive . The repair is cheaper than going out and buying a newer Ferrari. You can buy aftermarket headers cheaper than buying original Ferrari headers and are much better quality.
Best of luck with your purchase.

Harley, don't think the MY 08 and later exhaust headers won't crack, THEY WILL eventually. As Alex wrote, don't let this being a stopper of buying a MY 05/07.
