CAAD12 vs Synapse Carbon vs BMC GF01 (2016)

So I am deciding between the bikes, and i know CAAD12's position is more aggressive than the other two choice, so I'd like some first hand experience/suggestion if the position is very different.

My Longest Rides would probably be 50-60 miles tops
My usual rides just about 15-20 miles
Budget: ~3000 USD
Groupset: 105 is good enough for me.
I am used to 48/32 chainrings, have some rides on 50/34
I've been riding the Diverge
I am looking for Disc brakes.

So currently my choices are:

CAAD12 105 Disc + Fulcrum Carbon wheels (my only concern is the 52/36 crankset)
Synapse Carbon Disc 105
2016 BMC GF01 Disc 105 (my LBS has one left at a 20% discount since it's last year's model)

Thanks for help.
