Rena Filstar XP4

Anyone out there recently order a Rena Filstar XP4? The ones I've set up in past years for family and friends on their fish tanks always came with a spray bar and a healthy amount of intake tubing. We always had extra pieces. They did however never give you enough bio media.

The one i just received recently only came with enough segments on the intake just maybe go halfway down the tank and there is no spray bar. I called up the supplier and they told me that since API has taken them over they don't include it any longer! That's lousy if this is true! They had a good thing going there with these filters. One of the good things going for these was that they were very complete with many options right out of the box. The price is quite reasonable so why not raise the price a modest amount if you have to and include everything for the consumer. Still a good filter, but don't like what API is doing to it if this indeed the case.
