For the second time ever in my entire life I've refused to pay for some work done to a car. This time, the 308. Oh well. Another bridge burnt.

Had some tuning work redone. I already paid for it once. I don't see why I should pay twice.

I must admit I agonised over it though.

Did the tuning involve adjusting mixtures, using an o2 sensor, or software the tuner couldn't have known was misbehaving?

Was it tuned using healthy/correct/same fuel you put in?

Was ignition tuned using accurate sensing and equipment?

Had you been fiddling in between?

If there had been any good reason given i'd have paid.

If there was no good reason to re tune it, it's strange you were asked to pay at all.
