    2nd Hand from the US when the market gets flooded when everyone sells up due to registration fears

    Never mind cheapest get the best! Maplin. They have awesome service - swopped out my faulty V2+ last year and did an upgrade to a P3. They dont just send things off they would have given you a new one there and then!

    Thanks for feedback but just want best price - not worried about warranty as I will be modifying this unit.

    But how many of these will just swap it out no questions asked if you have stress cracks?

    Jessops swopped mine because they sold me one with the old motors and old shell. I had had it 2 weeks before I found out I had the old model. Took it back to the shop and they gave me a new model one. So if you do get some cracks I don't think you will have a problem with Jessops.

    I agree Jessops would be great but I would be wary of other places.
