MG MGF Technical - Coolant pipes installation cost

I am going to need some underbody coolant pipes in the near future, local Rover garage quoted around 30 for the pipes but for fitting they want just over 300, does this sound right? seems a lot at 300 on labour,

Sounds expensive.

If the underbody coolant pipes need replacing better check the radiator at the same time as they corrode as well. Cheaper in the long run as the system needs draining and then bled.

Try a specialist much cheaper than a dealer.

Surely people in Yorkshire take advantage of being within reach of Mike Satur? Not only does he do a good job, he charges sensible prices and does better underfloor pipes, as well as an upgraded radiator.

The saving on labour costs will probably finance the rad.

Niether job is particularly difficult to do - you just need to ensure that you bleed the system properly.
