sounds like you were fleeced but it depends on the quality of the new clutch, a good mechanic will have it swapped out in about 3-4 hours which is about 150 quid labour

I got a Clutch and bearing plate done on a Focus last year for €450, I've never heard cheaper than that TBPHWY.
Oem parts wouldn't be close and there are plenty better quality ones out there for less also, you'd get a stage two kit for 450, you'd get a standard clutch kit 150-200. Oem part have to be of equal or better spec.. hope you didn't go to Ford main dealer for your clutch..

That's can't just be a clutch kit I replaced on a 530i and the clutch kit was under 300 notes, in fact on mister auto you can get clutch kits for 5 series from 208 Euro

Clutches are never covered, even in new car warranties. As the poster said, deemed to be a wear and tear item.

Yeah - worth asking dealership at time of purchase how worn and torn clutch, gearbox, timing belt are.
If they admit one is up for replacement at next or second next service, may get a bit more off the asking price.
Likewise, if brake pads close to end of life, ask for replacements fitted as part of deal. TBF, think BMW do this anyway for their Premium used range.
