That remind me the old story about grocery shopper complaining to the owner, that he sells oranges for $3, when story 2 blocks away have them for $1.
"Why don't you buy them there?" asked owner
"Because they are out of stock"
"When I'll be out of stock, I'll have them for $1 as well".
Lot of shops will add some charge for corroded bolts. £73 sounds excessive, but than I haven't seen how badly corroded is your 13 years old car.
In US you don't have to pay the charge, that didn't get your approval.
