Lightbulb Advice? Planned upgrades.

2004 Cooper S
So I am about to do some upgrades to my Mini. Any advice on brands or even just in general? I am not looking to necessarily buy all the most expensive stuff. Maybe the best price:brand ratio?

-15% Pulley
-Injectors
-Inter-cooler Upgrade
-Intake
-Meth Injection
-3" exhaust?
I have heard the most conflict on the exhaust. Some say to do it and some say don't. I also have no idea what brand I would go with. I don't want it too loud but I really don't want to sound like a ricer either. I would even be willing to do it for the performance but put a silencer in it to keep the noise down.

I also would like to do some roof fog lights. Anyone suggest some that look good? I was thinking maybe doing 4 of them? I like the rally look plus there are tons of deer and dark roads where I live so they won't go un-used. I currently have yellow fogs on the bonnet that look great.

Just still new to the Mini world so anyone opinions are welcome
