To answer your questions about my post:

1. Here's what I bought for my BBSHD installation:
Bottom Bracket Size: 68-73mm (Standard)
Luna DPC-18 Full Color Display $55.00
Bafang BBSxx Universal Thumb Throttle
Hydraulic Brake Sensors: Bafang Hydraulic and Disc Brake Sensors E-Brake $15.00
GearSensor for Derailers and Internal Geared Hubs $45.00
48v Shark 13.5ah GA $459.95
Luna Wrench $19.00
Luna Aluminum Chain Ring Adapter With 42T Sprocket $40.00
I also bought the programming cable $20.00
I already had a Luna 5-amp charger, so I didn't need that.
Very little additional cost: a few jack nuts and a handful of zip ties.
Then, I later bought a bigger 48V 17AH battery: $392 delivered.

2. I do like the mid drive better than the hub drive. I can't say that it's all due to it being mid, because it's a BBSHD mid vs a 500W hub motor.l However, being able to get maximum power at very low speeds (e.g., steep hills) by shifting down into low gears makes a very noticeable difference.
