You're gettting ripped dude. Even though Series 2 gaskets are more than Series 1, they ain't that much more. And though it may be different on the S2, only ONE oil line needs to be touched, not both. I bet his solution was my initial thought: cut them off and replace them. Only takes a 20mil wrench to loosen that one line. Your car has far fewer miles than mine, and my lines still look good enough to keep.
BUT, if they do need replacing, it aint hard to do...any NAPA should have the straight line and a tube bender. I bet if you did this job yourself, you can come out of it with only spending 150.00 or even under. And thats with synthetic oil.
