Stiffed on door-lock repair?

	The driver-side door lock failed on my 200Q last month: tried
	to do it myself (with assistance from the list, particularly
	Al Powell) but finally gave up because I just didn't have the
	time. Bit the bullet and took it in to the local dealership:
	$148 (2 hrs) labor, and $90 or so for the "lock cylinder
	turnbuckle". Ouch!  I knew there was a good reason I did
	everything myself .... how badly did I get stiffed?

	'91 200Q (51K, and expensive, but functional, door lock)
	'85 5KT (133K, and I've never let a mechanic touch it)
