In a word...No, not really.  Parts could easily account for half that bill
with the rest being labor.  At $65/hr (minimum), you're looking at 6 1/2 hrs
labor, which, considering all that was done, sounds about right.  Provided
you had all the necessary tools, Bentley, general aptitude, good deal on
parts, you COULD have done it for less.  But that was a major $ervice,
ranking right up there with steering rack and clutch replacement.
