Interesting, I'm local to that.

Bmwp one looks pretty solid, i doubt there would be a noteable difference.. Measureable sure, but not to people
Going to have to disagree there, the Mason Engineering bars tend to take the bracing far beyond other kits. If you notice, there is no hinging or two piece design. Instead it is a solid frame welded to the mounting plates. You could tell the difference in the E36 between the Mason and the Dinan versions, I have little doubt it is the same here.
Have you used a hinge one before?

I've always had hinge ones, videos show the hinges don't pivot

Besides, the bmwp one isn't hinged, it's bolted flat.

Sure the mason one would be far stiffer, but whether or not that lets you pull more g's...
