Broken Spring

Just returned from holiday, Started my now dirty FR TDI and moved it forward to a twang sound from the front.

Driving it around, the noise from the front drivers side suggested a fault, I've had it checked by Kwik-Fit, and seen that the front drivers side Spring has snapped.

A few searches on here have suggested that this does happen, Kwik Fit have quoted £60 a corner and suggested that I have both front corners changed. From my searches this seems to be a reasonable price, and a good idea, and my lack of tools to get this done myself suggests that I should just get them to do it.

Should I shop around for a better price or just pay up?

Need the car for work, so can't have it off the road for to long!

This happended to me. My car had only done about 30k so I just changed one side. If I remmeber right it's an OEM part and the part was about £40 (unless you're upgrading) so anything you save will probably be marginal.
