rear coil springs

Car went into garage this week for a lot of work(rear drop links, axle links, tie rods,steering idle arm, wishbone dust cover, front tyres, aircon fan, pollen filter) however on an inspection found that one of the rear springs has a crack. Garage couldn't source any locally so I'm going to go get some myself and they will fit it new ones. Initially was going to replace one, but since i have no idea whats on the other side going to do both. They are sitting on bilsteins b6 hd's atm. I've done a bit of reading(uh-oh) and think I have a few options

Eibach - slightly softer than h&r
H&R - hard ride
Vogtland - softest

Which one would you go for, i drive mainly motorways for the daily commute and hills/windy roads on the weekend. Lowering the back is not a priority for me. I like the off kilter look! Also any recommendations for places to get these springs. In uk would be great, or northern ireland better or rep of ireland best.
