Airbag deactivation on 04 mini cooper

Hi. Recently bought a 04 mini cooper thinking like most modern cars it would have a key/switch to deactivate passenger airbag so a baby seat can be placed there.

BMW have quoted £581 to do this work and will want at leadt £250 to reactivate it when the baby faces front.

Anyone had a similar issue and did it cost as much as that?

I was quoted £250 originally then the main dealer gave a formal quote of £581 !!

My car has the switch BUT I always put the baby seat in the rear - Less of a distraction & safer I think
Another thing is the rear seats have ISOfix for child seats, the front doesn't.
