Coils - AGAIN!

My coils have now gone for the 4th time in a year on my 52 plate Renault Clio. The first time they went...2 were replaced (I thought 4...dodgy garage). The second time, my brother replaced ALL 4. Then they went again, and the coil spring snapped. I thought the garage changed them all, as they did my Timing Belt as well. But now my car is shuddering, and low idle and losing power, I phoned the garage and they informed me they'd only changed 2. Is there a reason why these keep going? What can I tell the garage this time? What do they need to clean (I read somewhere before about connections needing cleaning?)
