Yes, you just got screwed. Sorry.
However, this is pretty typical. I bet HBL would be happy to charge
me $427 for a regulator plus three hours at $68/hour. They're not
even friendly. The only thing I buy there now are light bulbs, and
that's only because I don't have the time to figure out which parts
stores happen to have the standard-but-rare bulb for, say, my trunk light.
Your best bet, if you don't want to install it yourself, is to take the
new regulator to a friendly local glass shop.
