180 is a darn good price at a dealer considering the parts alone are $140. 40bucks for labor, it might be worth it. Although I would feel better that it was done correctly doing itmyself. I always wonder if the dealer drains all the oil, or even does an oil change at all since we have no dipstick to check the color of the oil and I have no way of watching the work they do. I've caught dealers in the past cutting corners.
