This seems pretty standard to me. I fitted my last 2 myself and my Mazda cost about £170 for the bar (detachable) and £40 for electrics with proper relay. Took best part of 5 hours or so to do, had to remove all trim from boot to engine to run fused feed from battery so quite a bit of work, saying that a pro would get it done faster so cost less but £350 doesn't seem that bad
