    I can only find 1 store selling modded Wii with D2Pro in my country (a tiny one). I just found a review "http://www.iso420.org/wii/d2pro/index.htm" which says that the Wii needs to be reopen again when I want's to update it. Another issue was that the the "Programmer" is not included and I need to have a cable (not included either) to install it.
    Are these things important?
    Thx to the answers.

    The latest D2Pro (D2Pro9) doesn't require external programming, it updates by DVD. It's a good chip.

    The programmer is a way to update the chip using your computer. It just connects the D2Pro via USB. You don't need it.

    The question is the card better than wasabi, because i bought that since it said no soldering required. Next thing i know i get it and not only do i have to solder it i have to buy extra parts just to get the damn thing working.

    That's because WiiClips are for solder monkeys. Don't use them.

    Well that made little sense. You would figure if you pay 100$ for something, you would expect it too last for some time without problems....

    My D2Pro (not D2Pro9) on wiiclip v4 has been working good for almost 6 months now. At first I had trouble getting the clip to seat right. Took about three tries to get it but all has been good since then.
