Quite, and one needs to decide whether one pays for the overhead of a main dealer or not.Businesses need to create sufficient profit to remain in business.
You were close to what the OP declared save for the fact the tyres were £400 as were eve the brakesMy Guess:
Service - £99
MoT - £49
Four premium tyres - £200
Four brake discs and four sets of pads - £512
Brake fluid change - £90
Coolant change - £70
Injector clean - no idea - £150?
Aircon regas - £60
Wiper blades - £40
Total - £1270
I think you're mixing up your cycle chat members who use cast members of spaghetti westerns as their icons. (Lee Van Cleef is not the same person as Clint Eastwood. By extension, @Smokin Joe is not the same person as @Pale Rider )
I'm guessing a bit as I don't know exactly exact car model and what tyres you had fitted. The auto gearbox only appears to be available on the diesel but tyre sizes for petrol are similar.As regards tyres, a post purchase google suggests the main dealer charged me about the same for Continental Eco-something or others as the specialist retailers.
The days when the 'fast fit' places slaughtered dealers on prices are largely gone.
