how hot do you mix? do you deliver stems or whole mixes?

Before I had access to all these new limiter plug-ins I was much the same. Just compressing before mastering.
Now there are people sending me things to mix with their reference being crushed through an L3. When they hear my mix they're dissapointed. Louder sounds better, even to me.
Recently I've been using the McDSP ML4000 to compete and I think it sounds great, but my mastering engineer is not laughing. It really doesn't leave room for him so I'm trying to find that middle ground.
Almost there I think.
I rarely mix in stems except for film.
