Alfa Romeo handling charge, argh


I have been trying to get off side drive shaft replaced on my 156 2.4 jtd. Garage quoted my price to get original (car parts direct said inner shaft was to far gone past refurb), rather then but all the components the garage purchased the inner only, now thats its turned up they realised that not as simple and need to purchase more which has doubled my 300quid parts bill, told em now way as can go elsewhere and get the lot cheaper.

Any advise, as garage trying to sting me for 25% alfa handling charge (said its alfa policy), said im not paying but will pay labour to put my old shaft back on so I can at least move car (or will will tow without?). Garage are basically holding my car as ransom!!!!!!!!!!!!

Most places charge a restocking fee if the part is the wrong part and is the customers fault.
