Power Steering Hose Replacement

Hi all,

just had my 04 cooper in for a service at 67k. On the vehicle check report it was noted that a power steering pipe was leaking, and an estimate was attached totalling 298.88! The hose assembly comes in at around 150, and as far as I'm aware there is only an intake hose and a return hose on the steering pump reservoir. Can this really be 150 worth of hoses - anything special about them as they run close to exhaust manifold or is this just the usual BMW price for parts?

Any advice appreciated,
