I don't need to order the parts with the bike but the dealer is giving me a pretty decent discount on any extras I get so I am just trying to figure out who to go with.
the way I see it, the only reason to get the factory panniers would be if you really care about the width of the bike over every other factor. They are just about the most narrow option when mounted.
