Oil Filter Housing Gasket Replacement (SoCal)

Hi everyone
looks like I need my oil filter housing gasket replaced. I've been getting quotes north of $300 for parts and labor and that seems a tad high. Can anyone who has had this done before steer me somewhere in the Hollywood/Sherman Oaks area that might be a little more in line pricing wise?

Thanks!

Talk to Gary/Danny at mini corsa. They are in NoHo. tell them Raj sent you!

$300 doesn't seem too bad though. it takes a bit of time to get down to where it is.

Correct it does take a bit of effort to get at. alternator needs to come out.
