    i would recommend a logitech wheel, specifically a g27
    they're old enough to be on sale used for decent prices, but versatile and reliable enough to still be contentious
    plus, you can grab a set of clutch pedals and an h-pattern shifter later on and plug em in

    I don't know. The wheel I had was always a pain. I only ever had Logitech wheels. My first was a Wingman GP (was/is great just no FFB and not a lot of steering angle) and my last was a Driving Force GT (absolute pile of garbage, stay away). Personally, all of my modern Logitech stuff has been pure garbage, I can't see myself giving them another penny. The drivers on my wheel were awful and would sometimes just flip the pedals around causing crashes in game. The pedal broke and cut my foot. The FFB gears were always noisy and actually broke last week, prompting the flight that killed the wheel. All in all, I wouldn't trust a Logitech wheel. I'm going to be buying Thrustmaster next once I have the money saved up.

    Thrustmaster TMX. It's what I use. Decently priced and you can upgrade to *any* USB shifter you want and up to Thrustmaster's most recent high end pedals. I use the TH8A shifter and T3PA-Pro pedals with my TMX.

    Any game that supports Xinput will be able to use the TMX as it's an Xbox/PC wheel. Drivers are good and highly customizable.

    Damn, thanks for help guys!
    I will think about that one. Price is reasonable, looks good and reviews say it's great.


    Will think about Thrustmaster. Although as Stale said above, Logitech is also good.



    Choices, choices
    ... Soo many!
    I will look deeper into this topic, as soon as Easter Break will begin. Again, thanks for your help!:oops:

    I was just working on a car, dropped 2 bolts in the engine bay, but my Dad just sat there and said " Your better that the manufacture, because you made it with less bolts " XD

    A non-driving police car that will probably sell for too much.

    what about an AU falcon?

    don't knock that it's only got a 6 cylinder standard, this puppy can take all the thrashing that your body can handle.
    plus, look at that sexy styling, ford really was on their game in the late 90's.

    Erm... while I like the look of the focuses of that era, it... doesn't work on a sedan... :)

    As much as I like Falcons, the AU never seemed attractive to me.

    well it wasn’t really a proper bench seat
    there was no center console and it had a column shifter, like this:

    there was a lap belt or something in there you could make work
