    Hi guys, I have a late 2011 13" MBP which uses older BT 2.1 tech, I was wondering if someone would be able to point me in the right direction as to where I could find parts for the mid 2012 version at all? I know this one uses Bluetooth 4.0 LE and from what I can tell the AirPort card from the mid 2012 will fit in the late 2011.

    PS. I'm in the UK

    Have you tried eBay.co.uk ?
    They seem to have various models (although most are from the USA).

    The 2012 Airport card is slightly longer and has an additional antenna on it for the Bluetooth. If one of the antennas is not connected, wireless performance will suffer greatly.
