    I've had them since May 2007, so I assume the warranty has ran out. I'm having the power, 33/45 and pop up lights all blue. £90 for both the decks. Is this worth it?

    Paint-wise, I'm not certain yet, wasn't going to go extreme with white, probably just get a black fleck done, kind of like metallic.

    Check ebay bro, all you need is a soldering iron..

    Also with the paint.. It takes alot of work, not as simple as slappin abit of paint on. Spoke to SH81 on here about it who has done it and it takes alot of work according to him!

    i was bang up for doing the 'pimp my decks' idea the other month but just thought fuck it, and spunked my money on vinyl, seeing as thats what its all about!

    £90 is a ripoff, you can get a full service for 50 and te hcabnles replaces ( phono & earth)..not hard to do really, but best not to try if your not sure ! - Go to a proper repair centre ..you will get a better deal

    MK5Gs are black with sparkly speckles ( & +/- 16% pitch)

    G-Limited are the gold ones, and im not sure they are available as MK5, even then, the actual deck is still black
