I don't have specific Lotus bushing experience... but those look fine to me.

For reference new is 26mm, and minimum is 24mm... so "a mm" is 50%.

Yes... but you are really paying more because there is backup is something actually goes wrong (engine failure etc) within a short time of you leaving the dealer. From this perspective I think the dealer should fix the AC, as they claimed it was working, but the other items are all service items (and not all necessary by the look of it).
