valve cover gasket replacement cost $1700 at 42000 miles on 2004 Audi A4

$1700 cost for valve cover gasket repair at 44000 miles - does this sound right ? Seeing the Part Advertised under $20

Asked by for the 2004 Audi A4
The OE Audi/VW part is a little over $40, the labor is less then 2 hours, so even with a high shop rate it shouldn't be more than S250. It's a simple job. Are you sure it was a valve cover gasket job and not a cylinder head gasket??
