Have I been ripped off paying for a new exhaust and tyres?

The exhaust pipe on my Vauxhall Corsa came unstuck and Kwik Fit charged me £375 for a new one and told me that the front tyres needed changing. They recommended a £79 alignment check which apparently showed 15% and 5% off track tyres. The total cost was £660 for new pipe, alignment check and two new tyres. Have I been ripped off?

I doubt it. If the front wheels were out of alignment the tyres will have worn unevenly and that's why they needed to be replaced.
