rear coil springs advice (1 failed)

2010 Passat sedan. Had no idea that buying replacement coil springs is so complicated. Just learned about the VW/Audi spring marking thing. My VIN is WVWJK7AN2AE160399, so the decoder says the correct part is 3C0511115AE (White/Lilac/3x Yellow marks). I'm going to replace both springs, so any springs for a 2010 Passat should be fine, right? Going for OEM specs. Any recommendations?

Found this pair: https://www.ebay.com/itm/VW-VOLKSWA...ash=item33c5d3a0d1:g:ZHwAAOSwLdBaA4Uf&vxp=mtr
They're currently my top choice. Thoughts?

Also, thank God for this board!

you can check out ECS Tuning, not promoting them but is an option, you do not need factory,but do not get Chinese, the other thing is get a pair as they will be matched within reason

If I decide to go with aftermarket springs, which ones? Eibach, H&R, Neuspeed, other?

WRT to stock: honestly, do the markings matter (assuming I'm replacing both springs, which I am). IOW, will any VW spring for a 2010 Passat work? Or should I just stick with what I have. Given that the car is 8 yo, 72K miles, I'm not aiming for brand new condition.
