Are they taking me (and my car) for a ride?
Wtf? Yes they're fucking you. If they insist then I say sit in the car with them

Engine and diff oil that's it. And we have to pay for it in the UK and they still did it in 1 hour...

Mine took almost 2 hours, but the place was absolutely slammed. The tech took didn't drive it, other than around the parking lot and into the spot.
