clio - rear coil springs - MOT

hi all, my better half had her Clio MOT'ed today and it passed

It will not Pass next year though !, the tester fella said it will need a new pair rear coil spring they are going rusty !.

He also advised getting genuine Renault Springs, Coil Springs from anywhere else are crap !.

I am asking the members if this is a common fault with Clio Rear Springs ?, so if genuine replacements from Renault are so good, why do i need to replace them !.

I dont think this Tester fella is having me on, as it isnt definite he would get the job in twelve months time anyway, LOL.

BTW. Is changing the springs a job for a keen DIY mechanic, like me ?.

Currently in timmy toad's garage:
Mine = Vauxhall W reg. Meriva 1.6 8v, Wifes = Renault Clio RN T reg.,
