    I didn't have any problem getting an M3 DS Real, neither did my cousin, but this was about a year or two ago.

    My friend wants one now, he tried a website and got a fake, the ones that have www.m3adaptes.com written on it. Then we tried gadgetz4all and he still got a fake, that's the website where I got mine before, I'm really annoyed and disappointed now.

    Are there any trustworthy websites anymore to get M3 DS Reals in the UK?

    Thanks

    I don't know about places based in the UK, but I use DealExtreme all the time, and as long as you get this one (which is the one I got) you'll be fine. Well, all other than this one are the genuine article.
    They don't charge shipping to anywhere, and I find that if I order from them I typically receive it within 1.5 to 2 weeks. [​IMG]

    Could you find out where your friend got his? I'd like to post the websites at the top of the M3 Sakura FAQ so that other people won't order from them.

    One was from www.gadgetz4all.com, The other was www.smartbuyeruk.com

    And thanks for the link aphirst, if nobody else recommends a faster UK based place I'll get my friend to order when they're back in stock in 4 days. [​IMG]

    I think PC Jerry are fantastic, I've ordered lots of stuff from them. Last week ordered a new Edge card on Monday and got it by Wednesday, it was the same with my M3. The only problem is M3's are out of stock at the moment, but I can't praise them enough.

    I'll have to keep an eye on both for stock. [​IMG]

    By the by my friend received this email back from Gadgetz4all, seems they are still a trustworthy site, they were just fooled. Which is good, since I like their website. Unfortunately they seem to be having trouble getting M3 Real stock though.

    "M3 DS Real Upgrade" Wow, I hope something bad happens to that China Supplier, good for you Steve Proctor, don't believe their lies!

    Last month I used www.modchip-store.co.uk to buy my M3DS Real. Took about a week to arrive but probably not the cheapest as you have to pay £1.80 delivery.
    However they are based in Nottingham and they sell genuine carts (also in stock ). Hope this helps

    Thanks for all the support you guys, but Gadgetz4all came through, they've split from their bad supplier and now have genuine M3's for sale again, even emphasising they're genuine in the item description. [​IMG]
