Wrong headers? ( pics inside )

A few months ago i bought this 323i headers from Ebay (surewinproducts), and never had the time to install them. Last week i had a few days of vacations and, with a few friends, tried to install them without luck. Appears that the first header ( front end of car) fits nice, but the rear one doesn't have space to connect to the exhaust (almost touches the front header) and the places to put the sensors are too close to the transmission. Here are the pics, do i have the correct ones or im screwed? any options?



thanks!

You're screwed.

Completely wrong headers. The flanges are supposed to be next to each other and they're like 6 feet apart. Looks like you got 2 front sections of headers from different cars, and no rear section, as they dont even look the same.

why is it these ebay sellers constantly send the wrong headers? I always get correct items when I shop on ebay, but headers seem to be sketchy.
