2005 Mini Cooper

2005 Mini Cooper 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 20,000 miles

My windshield got cracked from a stone thrown by a truck. The Mini dealer tells me it will be $1200 to fix because in Mini's the windshield is linked to the airbag system and it is a major repair. Are they pulling my leg or is this true. Please help, I don; t have much money and don; t want to be riped off.
Thank you,
