George,

I do not know if the inspector filed a report. I have been in contact with Continental myself and they have been directed to file a warranty claim for my cost of inspection ($315.00). They also acknowledge that they have a quality control problem that they are addressing internally.

Wow. Well... at least they acknowledge it. If they’re having much trouble their CRS will be at-risk. Thanks.
