I've now had experience with the BMW HiFi sub in my wife's X5, my stock H/K sub in my f30, and the new version of the Bavsound Ghost Speaker in my H/K system.

I've sent back the Bavsound as it wasn't really adding anything on the low end, it did however add to the higher mid-range sound which I was not hearing much at all from stock. After going back to the stock H/K sub it is clear that the stock speaker goes lower but overall is not as responsive (sounds muddy). I plan on adding an amp to my stock H/K system with MusicarNW and they think I'll be pretty impressed with what the stock speakers can do when they are properly powered and tuned. Plus taking the low end away from the underseats will make them perform much better (adding JL 10W6).

By the way MusicarNW suggested the Earthquake underseat if you don't plan on adding a sub, it apparently has the best low-end performance in their opinion.
