Not sure which engine your car has, but the condenser and a couple of seals could be about £60 to £100. If DIY replacing it you would still need to have it regassed which seems to cost around £60 giving a total around £120 to £160. So the price quoted does not seem too bad. If the air con still has some pressure in it then it would need the gas removing first at the garage, although if there is a leak this is unlikely. A typical place for the leak would be where the pipes connect to the condenser.
Replacement and regassing is supposed to take about 2 hours and involves removing the front bumper (to access the radiator fasteners), air filter casing, undoing the turbo air pipes to the doser valve, unfastening the radiator so it can move back, undoing the condenser pipes to the condenser, plugging them to prevent moisture getting in and then removing the condenser.
