I mean can you blame them? Lol if someone is willing to walk in and pay a price for something...

I think I've talked down every mechanic who has ever offered me a quote just because they always try to over charge for labor hoping I don't know how long the job should take. The most recent thing I needed a mechanic for was to install my springs because I don't have access to a compressor. I called 3 shops in the area that all wanted ~$500-600 for 3-5 hours of labor...to install springs...

They'll try to get you for even more if you have mods on your car and you don't understand them! My friend paid $300 in a labor getting his vararam to work because he installed the MAF sensor backwards!
