    personally there alot clone one out there and you never know if they installed one on your?

    recommended buy your modchip and DIY or (mark your modchip) and ask if they could do installation for cheaper?

    I think you can find a cheaper installer or a friend with some experience.

    55 quid JUST for installation or does that include the Wiikey as well? I know some places that do it for that price, but they include the wiikey and installation together,

    Ideally you want to be present for when they install the wiikey, so you know what you're getting, and can also check if it's a clone or not

    EDIT: Looks that includes teh chip as they do the install alone for £30, so it's a fairly good deal I guess

    I used console workshop to install my wiikey, the service was excellent and includes a 30 day guarantee.
    I sent my wii on monday afternoon and i recieved it back wednesday am, Cheekymonkey is always willing to answer any questions you may have no matter how many you have.
    I have recommended him to a few mates and i would recommend him to anyone in the UK looking to get a chip fitted.

    as soon as I take delivery of mine (official wiikeys), I plan to offer installs for 80.00usd including the price of the mod chip.
    I'm hoping to receive them by this weekend.

    Hi to all, sorry if this is out of date, but i use genuine wiikeys only, i get mine from a genuine UK reseller, and £55 includes the chip, fitted etc etc.



    I really specialize in repairs though, for all your bodged install needs.

    CheekyMonkey,
    I've got to say that some of your 'before' pictures made me gasp - the concept of practice was clearly unknown to those peeps.
    Nice restorations - you're worth it.
