    your being ripped off,the top and bottom hose replacement is expensive but all the hoses including the heater hoses sould cost no more the $750 at least thats what i would charge.

    Why do you need to replace the hoses at 30,000 miles? I see no reason unless there are physical signs of failure or deterioration. Mileage is not typically an issue with hoses, it's more age and environment.

    I just went through the maintenance guide for the X-Type and see no mention of hose replacement. Get a second opinion before shelling out that money.

    I BELIEVE IN ONLY REPLACEING ONES THAT SHOW SIGNS OF LEAKING. THERE ARE DIFFERNT PLACES TO GET HOSES FROM SUPPLIERS. MAKE SURE CHEAK OTHER SHOPS
