Bought a “bolt on” cat back exhaust that didn’t fit. It is supposedly designed for the year and model of my car (C5), but it doesn’t line up to the factory mounting brackets, by about an inch. Took it to the local shop that works only on Corvettes and they confirmed it does not fit/line up.
I haven’t called the vendor yet, but will in the morning. If they balk at reimbursing me for return shipping, should I threaten to chargeback the total purchase if they won’t? Is the card issuer likely to back me?
I’ll likely call the issuer before contacting the vendor, but I imagine they will not give a binding answer.
Return shipping will likely be $60-100.
Anyone have a similar experience?
