This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet.

Sounds a little high, but most shops go by the book. That is, they have a list of how long each repair for every car takes in hours (on average), and then they multiply that by how much they charge for labor an hour.

You can usually ask the shop to explain or show you where they get their book hours, and break down the invoice.
