HS Headers

I peeked under my car Friday its been about two months or so(I'v been neglecting her). And what do I see..... My nice HS header has turned UGLY!! The primarys have no rust on them but the secondary pipe from the flexpipe back is totally necked. The ceramic coating has flacked off and rust is setting in. WTF I got them last July!! The secondary before the flex pipe is also starting to rust. They used to look so nice with the ceramic coating..... I'm pissed and HS is getting a call on Monday.

Really doesn't seem right that a specially coated header's coat would just flake off sometime. Common sense would say that it should stay on indefinitely... maybe the coating itself corrode after many year (like rust on paint), but not simply flake off. If you car's paint does that under warranty it's called a paint defect and you get a new paint job...
