Broken Cup Spring...

  172 Cup
A front spring on my 03 172 Cup broke the other day when i hit a pothole.
First queston is, has anyone heard of this happening before?
Second question is, can they be bought as a pattern part or from Renault only?
1 spring alone from Renault is aprox £150!!!!
A local garage say they can get an aftermarket part and they DID use the chassis no for id.
Just don't want to get into a bun fight if the wrong ones are fitted.
Am i right in thinking the Cup is 10mm lower and something like 10% stiffer?
Urgent reply if poss as the car is going into garage in the morning!

Cheers guys
