John says a lot of things. Wheres my RocEuro intake? He said that was coming too. And when you email about it, he doesn't even bother to answer.
My dealer says the Stasis exhaust is no good. They are a Stasis dealer and and the boxes say Made in China right on them and often don't fit right. They recommended staying far away from all of Stasis's products except the tune.
I'd go with the AWE. Its downpipe back, which is superior to just a catback.
Avoid the German stuff like the plague. Its all ridiculously overpriced and no better than anything else. We discuss this all the time on the BMW forums. The Europeans feel that they can overcharge just because they think they're special. Reality is, they aren't special. They're just ripoff artists. Their products are no better than anything made in any other country. No better than a Japanese part, an American part, or any other part. Hell, if a Chinese part fit and performed as well for half the price, why wouldn't I buy it? Why would you pay a premium for a name?
EDIT: To clarify, I'm not saying Millitek is a major offender. Talking more along the lines of SuperSprint and Akrapovic, who have the nerve to charge $4k+ for a cat-back.
