I'd stick to minispares. I only ever hear bad things about minisport, exhaust wise, it depends. Yes your correct some exhaust do more good than bad for example the 3" Side exit exhaust on mine is not helping fuel economy, but it sounds the dogs *******. To find the right balance you want to find one with a 1.75" Exhaust, thats the real sweet spot. In my opinion stick to the elements, cone filters can actually decrease the performance of an engine. if you Youtube MightyCarMods: Cone Filters Mythbusters. Its very interesting to watch. The gained the most power with the element style, also having an element style keeps noise down a bit.
I'd say have a go at fitting it yourself, fitting an exhaust is very easy if you have a ramp, but can be done on axle stands, it just consist of rolling around under the car, swearing and smacking things, but its satisfying when its done. To do it you'll need, some exhaust paste a good set of spanners and the odd socket and ratchet. Halfords Advanced/Professional stuff is good. the £100 set will keep you in good stead for the casual stuff you might need to do.
If you watch some wheeler dealer clips on YouTube of how to fit an exhaust they will help you. If you watch Mighty Car Mods, some of there stuff is utterly pointless but there are some good tips and guides in there for DIY jobs such as bumper repair and fixing curbed wheels etc.

Just use genuine parts, other wise it bite you on the behind in the futre, he says crying at the difference in price .
Pattern is about half the price than genuine but its also half the quality.
