Genuine new you're probably not going to get much change out of a grand. They are available pattern, about £300 for the front cats (maniverter) off the top of my head, but they can be a very poor fit.

tried a bottle of this first? £20 has got to be better than a grand

Cataclean, catalytic converter cleaning fluid

IIRC garages have a process to de-coke a messed up cat, run the engine very lean for 10 mins or something like that, it will help if marginal on emissions. It was a few years ago I saw it being used so may not be suitable for modern cars, (it was a Metro, when was the last time you saw one of them!)

Has a garage diagnosed this as a consequence of emissions testing or was it a guess based on the misfire issue?
