Default Is $1400 Parts and Labor for a Cat change too much?

Junior here. I need a benchmark on pricing before I take the 02 allroad in for a new passenger side cat converter. Here's a couple of Q's to go along with it.

1. Should I do both while I'm down there?
2. Should I change the O2 sensors while I'm down there?
3. Is it a DIY thing for a modest wrench?

Thanks in advance everyone.

Idk about the cat's man sorry. i dont think you need to change 02 sensors unless you have codes for them (someone please correct if im worng) i changed banksII sensorI myself this summer in my allroad 2.7T and it was a bit of a challenge. very minimal room to work between the back of block and the firewall.

Thanks for the feedback.

I figured it would be best just to take it in to do it. $1400 was the best deal I could get. The O2 sensors were only $160 and he wouldn't charge labor to put those in as well.
