I'm not sure the currency exchange from Euros to Dollars but I would say you might be hoodwinked. I have never replaced the injectors in mine yet but I would imagine they would not be hard to get to, but I also don't know the price of new injectors. Food for thought: I have never seen anyone repair a fuel injector on anything in the past 15 years.

I suspect we are talking diesel here? IIRC, new diesel injector from dealer will run about £250.00 each for part, which today might be around Euro 312.50. Refurb might be about £150 each in UK. Most find it best to use a diesel specialist rather than dealer. (Plus labour, of course). Note that over-torqued injector locator bolts can fail under pressure - it happened in the factory (recall on some facelift models) .... we know of at least one that went through the engine cover!

My car broke down in the UK it was towed in to Kia in Romford they could not find the real problem
put a new filter on done a pressure test cleaned the pipe from the pump this cost £214.00, I then drove back to our house France the car broke down again it was towed to a dealer 40k away and they found the problem I don,t know why the UK dealer missed it.

Just got my Car back all working OK, I went for refurbished injector 250 Euro,s each plus tax 19.6% in France with some extra bits + labour 220e Total 1215 Euro,s .
Last year one new cost 465+tax they quoted 750+tax this year quite an increase
UK dealer quoted £350 each £300 labour inc tax for new ones would have come to £1250=
1560 euro,s

The garage in France seem to attach some degree of blame to Diesel fuel from the supermarkets
