Laguna service rip off

I was recently quoted 300 for a 38 K service at Renault, so i bought i Haynes manual off e-bay for 14. bought all the bits 90.00 (which included the top grade fully synthetic oil , and 5 Litres of brake fluid) and did it all myself in a couple of hours, and that included a full brake fluid change. The only problem i faced was trying to undo the sump drain plug, its a square hole job, special tool required, i fashioned one out of an old allen key, with a grinder !, so what i didnt get the service book stamped, but i have the full receipt which shows the quality grade of oil used , regards
