Brera SV6 Front springs

Hi,
I am lucky enough to own a Brera SV6, or so I thought. It failed it's MOT yesterday on 2 broken front springs. My main dealer says he cannot get them anymore so I tried independents, Alfa Workshop an GGB Shop4parts. Everyone very helpful (thank you) but to no avail. I've spoken to Eibach (again helpful) who don't have any in stock but could make then for 700! As they are special Bilstein dampers I cannot fit any other springs. As a last ditch attempt I contacted Prodrive - again very helpful, they'll try a few people for me but it wont be quick. I am very grateful but my MOT expires on Tuesday. Does anyone know anyone who has any Eibach Prodrive spec springs please? If not, Eibach suggested clubbing together some SV6 owners to do another production run...sounds crazy but may be the only option for all Brera Sv6 owners when their springs break too. help pleeaseee!!!

You could try some of the UK manufacturers: eg Coil Springs,high quality coiled suspension springs from coil springs or Spring Catalogue
Made to measure

Surely there must be some around somewhere. What about the coilover setup?

Don't the springs you can get from Eibach from Alfisti fit the v6, even the S model

You may consider an upgrade on them too, not necessarily the oem fit!

Thanks for the feedback all - i'll try some spring manufacturers. I have spoken with Eibach who have told me that non of their other springs will fit the Prodrive Bilstiens for some reason.
