IMO, go with AA. Why? Because they're a golf standard product on every BMW platform they've decided to mod. Something I really like that the AA, Fabspeed & Akrapovic DPs all feature is the OEM style subframe mounting bracket (circled in red below). While it's a really minor detail, it ensures the closest to OEM fitment & guarantees that the DPs will not rotate once installed (thus, avoiding any subframe rubbing even after everything is bolted back up).

At the end of the day, it's your call & if that extra cost justifies the product quality. But if I had a choice between these specific products, I'd be making an appointment with that shop to get the Active Autowerke DPs installed.
