Whomever you personally choose you are well advised to stick with one brand.
I personally feel that rear-set this and carbon that really boils down to how much financial bandwidth you want to apply to the bike.
DP Carbon for 1199 is extremely high quality with the matching price tag. If your budget can afford it and you want the quality of Ducati Performance then DP it is. I would advise that you keep all your original parts as you can easily part out and sell DP carbon as it keeps its value high.
Personally, I have all the DP kit (ALL) for both the 1199 and 1098 with the carbon on the 1199 (satin) and the 1098 (pure Ducati corse factory gloss). I will also add that the Ducati Corse and even the DP carbon on the 1098 is outstanding. Sure I could of spent 50% less, however it was not the money that was an issue it was completing the Ducati puzzle.
If not DP then I would seriously consider Shift-Tech.
If you want Carbon sticker shock look at the price of the DP Carbon for the 2013 HyperMotard .. very expensive.
