Air Bags 02 Clio

Hi i have a 1.2 02plate clio dynamique. I have had nothing but faults with it since day one, but i have had a good few months when yesterday, being the plonk i am, got freaked when warning lights flashed up, veered off to the left and caught the curb, unlucky for me there was a metal grid there too.
My passenger seat air bag was deployed! i was in a state of shock and only got round to going a garage today, I went to my garage who quoted me 1500 for a new ECU and 300-400 for a whole new passenger seat.
I then went to my local renault specialist who said that was about right but i should only need the air bag part of the computer system.
It is highly confusing and i am being bombarded from all angles! My car is prob only worth 2000 so its not worth me spending all that money.

Due to the computer not working i no longer have any functioning air bags. Neither will my passenger seat belt fasten as i need a new pretensioner. I cannot believe all this can come from one knock to a curb!! I didn't even burst a tyre!!! i only sliced the side wall. I dunno what to do for the best and i need to get people off my back can anyone help??

thank you!
