    hello
    I'm Italian and I would like to buy a GBA with mod backlighting 101,
    much better than buying a original sp 101 on ebay with very high prices and less comfortable.

    But where to buy it at a good price and with a guarantee at work?
    (without customs costs)

    thanks for your advice.

    This is probably unrealistic.

    The only other place that I know that sells the needed parts aside from china is kitsch-bent's shop. I don't have any shop's that listed in the EU that sells parts for the 101 mod.

    kitsch-bent's site is in the US.
    ribbon cable: http://store.kitsch-bent.com/product/game-boy-advance-lcd-ribbon-cable-adapter
    screen: http://store.kitsch-bent.com/product/game-boy-advance-sp-backlit-lcd-screen

    You can contact them and find out if it will be cheaper or better for you than getting it from china.

    Getting the ribbon cable requires knowing what type of ribbon cable your GBA uses. The description on the ribbon cable tells you how to determine what version you need.

    From the sites I know, the answer to a site that has both a gba and the 101 mod would be a no. Be glad that there are still sites left that still sell parts needed for the 101 mod.

    Have you considered the GBA SP? These came in two versions. The older type has front-lit LCD in response to the Afterburner lighting mod kit. The revised model came with true backlight.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Edit - Nvm. I reread your post. You're not consider this model due to high cost. The GBA modified with Afterburner kits are almost that price, too. It'll be toss up depending what body style fits your hands better.

    electronic_convenient_4_you has the cheapest modded GBA 101s on ebay. Friend got one from him with no problems other than just having to give the potentiometer a tinker with.
