I'm now waiting for it to arrive in the mail so I figured I'd ask the few questions I have and get a general idea.

First off is there any difference in the model sold on the play store and the one from T-Mobile? Are there any ROMs that have pie control, I love cm10.2 on the Nexus 7 because of not having the constant home, back, ect. I got the 16 gig model how much space is actually available to the user? And finally in your guys opinion what is the best custom ROM to run, ive been running CyanogenMod since cm6 and since CM11 is still very early on in development, I'm not sure if I wanna ride the nightly train, stability and PIE I guess is what I'm looking for. Thanks in advance glad to soon be a part of the Nexus 5 family.

1.no difference whats so ever.
2. pie control roms, probably. i dont use it so never checked.
3. about 12 and a half gigabytes.
4. theres no such thing as a best rom. there's only the rom thats best for you. and starting threads on xda asking whats the best rom isnt allowed, and your thread will get closed.

Only difference between Nexus 5 purchased at T-Mobile vs. the Play store is that Sprint doesn't have the ESNs in their database so you can't activate it with Sprint. Nobody knows if they're going to change that later.

The best rom would be stock, just be stock and deal with it you will find that its good enough for you and you dont have to worry about things like backing up stuff or losing your MEID

Stock ROM would certainly be the most reliable. If you want more granular control of the UI but want to keep the back-end stock, consider Xposed Framework with GravityBox.
