If you're regularly diving in the uk in varied conditions BSAC sports diver will be a waste of time for you except for the rescue lesson. However it might be worth doing the box ticking bollox if you wanted to go down route of more bsac qualifications.
I would go as far as to say if you did really learn much doing sports diver then you would be well advised to stick around that level for a while.
Depends on your rate of progression really (desired rate plus taking into account how much spare cash and time you have). If you want to go and do deep stuff off malin with any sort of regularity then you won't want to be doing that on OC trimix as it's sodding expensive, I sacked off that idea pretty quick and that was with me mixing my own gas let alone paying shop or boat prices. So you end up down the CCR route... and I would say get on one sooner rather than later. I don't think my twinset and stage diving experience gave me as much useful experience as doing the same stuff on ccr would have with the same rate of progression.
But obviously that's some serious outlay of time. Don't worry too much about the cost, people blow that all out of proportion, you can get an inspo classic second hand for the same sort of prices you could pay to set up a decent twin set.
So have a think about your current level and your ambitions and a route to get there before you splash a load of cash.

I failed to dive in Antartica
