Cliosport 172 scrapping advice

Hi Renault forums people!

My 172 has been told to go to the scrapheap in the sky by a local mechanic, he said I can pay him the 150 for collecting it and having a look / diagnosing, or he can scrap it for me to recoup his costs.

I am wondering whether it's worth paying the money and scrapping it for parts myself, or whether to just let him do it?

I think the engine is a gonner (mechanic said something like bent pistons? est'd about 1000 fix), the body panels have a quite a few scratches and dings on and the drivers seat has a tear in the fabric.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, i.e. whether it's worth paying to keep it, and if so what parts would be worth selling on and rough prices, or just to be done with it?
