Is my best bet (in terms of compatibility) to send PDF1.3, PDF1.4 or PDF/X-3?

It's not that the shops I talked to didn't accept PDFs, it's that they were 
slightly worried about making the separations from it (I don't know why).  
I'm pressed for time, so that's why I'm wondering which is the most 
shop-friendly PDF format, and which are the most PDF-friendly shops...  

England, anyone?
