Welcome to Ferrari Life. Header failure is a well-known fault of the F430, but am afraid not enough detail on the transmission problem. Sounds like an F1 fault or a clutch problem, but not the gearbox itself, which is pretty robust. You might ask for some more detail.
If you lived in the US, there is an 8 year warranty on the headers as part of the emissions warranty. Not sure if there is an emissions warranty in the UK, but worth asking.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
