best sway bars?

i made a thread a while back about whether or not sway bars will make a difference.
well the consensus is they absolutely will.
now i just need to figure out what ones to get. the hotchkis seem to be the biggest bars, but at $469 versus others at $369 thats quite a bit more.
i was looking at the turner sway bars (27 front and 21 rear) because i like the blue. haha. and those seem to be similar in size and pricing as H&R and eibach.

i really want to spend the least amount of money possible but are the Hotchkis bars seriously worth that extra $100 that i could just be saving?
for reference the Hotchkis are 30 front and 25 rear.

I have CSL sways. If I had money to burn, I buy the Ground Control adjustable one's. Adjustable is the way to go because there is absolutely nothing spookier than a tail happy M3.
