    This is card I bought from eBay (Canadian link): http://www.ebay.ca/itm/271373774549

    I found it in that huge thread for 2011 MBPs. It's important that the card you get ends with a chip ID "CAX"

    Good luck with it! I just installed it (not as easy as installing RAM or an SSD, that's for sure) and it works on Mavericks without kext modifications.

    I can't imagine the shipping/customs fees you're paying for it to ship to Australia.

    We don't pay any import duties or taxes on anything less than $1000. Delivery was $20. Thanks for the update!

    Under what circumstances would people need to do a kext modification?

    To get Yosemtie's Continuity, Handoff, and Airdrop features working between OS X and iOS. That's what the large 2011 MscBook Pro thread is about.

    What does the modification actually do to the kext? Change some sort of device Id?

    Unfortunately, I don't know. I don't have Yosemite in any form and as such, haven't attempted to mess around with the kext files nor have I read too much into it.
