$93.00 for Toyota to replace a $4 o-ring

So I was having trouble with my AEM Intake install, the light came on, so I drop it off at toyota and put an o-ring in which I didn't even think the car had when I took off the original Intake. I didn't see any o-ring, I didn't even think I needed it. Anyway, to make things worse, the smoke coming from the radiator area is ac coolant and , the condenser has a hole in it...NO AC anymore, well i've been looking for a reason to cut 40 lbs off my car anyway. They want 800 to fix that, fuck it, I'll go without the ac. My question is, how the fuck does it cost 93 dollars for that bullshit. All they have to do is plug that thing in to the car to tell them whats wrong, and you know it only take 30 seconds to put an -o-ring in...I learned my lesson , once again...DON'T DO ANYTHING YOURSELF!

^^ toyota dealerships always charge and arm and a leg (mostly for labor). you're better off taking to a reputable bodyshop thumbsup
