really good price

Looks sexy as f*** - now just to convince the missus that this is worth the price tag...

Heat added anyway OP - I can dream for now

Sadly the pedals make it worthless and they wont sell the base on it's own.

No it doesn't, get some class about you.
The ladies down the kebab at 3am aren't sexy either as a point of reference.

Thank you, ordered. Been wanting to buy this wheel for some time but waiting for the price to drop, best deal on hot deals for me in a while!

Lol was about to post this!X) The TH83 shifter is also the cheapest around at £89.99 (Zavvi)

I'm still annoyed that Sony won't let you use your perfectly good Logitech GT Force wheels with the PS4 but I'm sure this is a nice wheel all the same. Looks like a lovely piece of kit (as it should be for the original price).

8% quidco.

Also a great price on the Thrustmaster Warthog stick right now

Shame the 15% doesn't count towards electronics.(_;)

yeah .....created a new account to try it

Sooo tempted and have been some time.....I have a beefy PC gaming rig, ps4 and xbone. I prefer ps4 over xbone, however my mates only play on xbone. For my main use it will be mostly PC however on my 980 card + rift DK2

I've taken the plunge with Zavvi wouldn't be surprised to see the T300 go up once Project Cars hits the shelves.(_;)

I think the G25/27 are better and the pedals are much better, had my G25 for 6 years now and it has probably done more than my actual car and it is still going strong and I abuse it badly. Just a shame Logitech isn't supported on new consoles which I am shocked at to be honest.

I'd say your basically getting the pedals for free at this price.

Smashing price OP. Heat added

Fantastic Price! Usually £269.99! I want It so bad!

I tried the Thrustmaster TX458 and these wheels feel nothing like a real steering wheel, so be aware of that. Also the build quality is pretty bad, and even the T500RS I bought was faulty out of the box. GT6 and this wheel has a lot of FFB problems you can't adjust out. Also the pedals are terrible with a very stiff accelerator and you need a sturdy mount that doesn't move a lot like this one:
http://www.pagnian.co.uk/steering-wheel-stand/next-level-racing-wheel-stand-for-g27-g25-t500-rs-fanatec-wheel.html
and that costs another £149.99.
Then you're virtually racing with physics that aren't very accurate on GT6, etc, with only fake steering weight and visual/audio cues to guide you.
Seriously not worth the money, despite £189.99 being a crazy bargain price for that wheel you will be disappointed. Better to buy an old hot hatch or sports car and go on some track days.
I know this sounds snobby, but I tried most of the £50-350 wheels on the market and they're all rubbish with major flaws you can't adjust out.
None of these cheaper wheels are worth buying, and they're certainly not worth paying money for just to use them with the majority of arcade games out there.
I'll vote hot as if someone wants to buy this wheel as I imagine you will never find it cheaper than this until it's discontinued, but it's rubbish.
Again sorry if I sound snobby, but I was led to believe these wheels feel like the steering on real cars. They're really expensive toys, that maybe kids who have never driven a real car would like.

Nice wheel, now just gotta save up the wonga...1p...2p...3p... Heat added.

That is a good price. I bought the T300 GTE for my PS4 from Game about 6 weeks ago when they had it in stock (It was in stock for about a day as too was the T300 RS)

It was £249.99 which I thought was a decent price as most places sell the GTE for RRP (£329.99)

I've been really impressed with the wheel and the pedals aren't so bad either, probably better than the naff reviews people give them online. Using Driveclub with this wheel is sooooo much better than using the controller...

Oh and I bought the F1 rim for this too. Cheapest I could see it online was £89.99 at BT shop so the original wheel now gathers dust while I tend to use the F1 rim.

Just FYI, my steering wheel history is something like this so I feel well positioned as I've tried most of the decent brands:

1. Thrustmaster DFGT
2. Microsoft xbox 360 wheel/pedals
2. Logitech G25
3. Fanatec Turbo S / Clubsport pedals
4. T300 GTE

I've also just recently received my CSW v2 from Fanatec about 3 weeks ago too although that's still in the box.

There's plenty of cheap mods around which make the pedals perfectly user friendly. Anyone who suffered with the DFGT pedals will know what I mean, and I would bank on these being better straight out of the box than they were. If not the saving you make leaves you most of the way toward a set of T3PA's.............if you can find em in stock.:p

Seriously considering buying this. Are the pedals that bad compared to a G25?

Hot just because thrustmaster sounds funny to me

A company called Ricmotech offer an adapter which allows you to use your G25 pedals with the T300 it's not at all expensive.

Really great wheel, really great price, great build quality, average pedals - i replaced them with the t3pa pedals, and it is a much better substitute.

Works great with driveclub, I havent bothered with PC gaming, but looking forward to project cars.

I had to laugh at the guy recommending track days instead of this wheel - yes mate, it is not a fully fledged simulator replacement.. Maybe also join the Army to save yourself £40 on call of duty too??

Ive had hours of fun and could never play a racing game with a controller ever again!

..and i'm just sitting here with my Trust GXT 27 Force for pc (£31) lol. If only I had money to burn on a logitech G27..

Still refuse to buy until it includes the better pedals with clutch and shifter

The T3PA's are normally in stock on the Thrustmaster UK web shop...

I went through 3 T500s and all faulty, one set on fire, thank god I was in the same room when it suddenly went up.

I agree though, these wheels feel nothing like driving a real car.

What do some of you people want? It delivered bolted to an MX5??? It's a gaming accessory appreciate it for what it is essentially an expensive toy. Amb47uk's COD analogy was spot on.

Man such a good price so tempted but got a dfgt atm

Guys im seriously considering to buy this. Just a few questions as this will be my first ever wheel purchase, the wheel it self looks nice however will this work alongside a TH83 shifter? and also it would be kind of pointless getting a shifter without a clutch so is it possible to use pedals which include a clutch and if so which one? or should i just wait until someone like logitech releases something which includes everything im looking for!

How does it compare to the Logitech G25 which sadly is not supported by the ps4 (wish I knew that before upgrading from the ps3) ?

could buy a cheap car for that

If to be used on PC, the G27 is only £30 more at Currys/PC World

Sorry about your bad experience, but I disagree with you on when you just say 'it's rubbish'. Sure enough, if you could afford a real simulator with a steering wheel worth 5000€, then you'd get much more closer to the real thing. But in the context of a racing simulator for PC (not talking about consoles) these steering wheels can make a big difference. I own a DFGT and recently bought a T500RS and I can only say it's marvellous. I think the T300 shares a lot of components with the T500 (I would say it's the same base with less powerful motor but different pedals) so I'm pretty sure it wouldn't disappoint people. I think the whole driving experience depends on the videogame + PC + steering wheel + mounting rig. And even without the latter, you can still feel how the car is moving and predict what is going to happen. That's to me a good indicator about how real the experience is.

What are you gaming on? If a Pc you can pretty much mix and match any combo.. If ps4.....You'll need a t300 or t500.. The t300 is the better wheel...t500 has better pedals.

You can buy th8a shifter to work with it (not currently compatible with driveclub).. And t3pa pedals... Which have a clutch and a conical brake mod which is great..making the brake feel realistic.

Ive had the g27... Solid wheel.. But the forcefeedback isn't near as good as the t300s brushless motor system.. It wont work on a ps4..and despite having a clutch and shifter.. They aren't particularly good.. Plus its old tech vs the t300..

No point waiting for logitech to release something new.....logitech aren't making wheels anymore .

TH8A shifter is designed to accompany this wheel as are the T3PA pedals (includes clutch) does kinda hurt you are looking at another 200 notes to fully kit this wheel out and that's before a suitable stand.!!oO Easiest place to look for information is the official Thrustmaster website there's handy firmware update information on there also.

I had the g25 before this and I thought that was amazing.
But this is on another level.
No it hasn't got a clutch and gear stick but come on, times are changing and flappy paddles are on pretty much all new race cars now and can save you up to half a second of acceleration time per gear change. And yes the break pedal isn't as resistant as id like it to be but a piece of stress ball fixed that. I cannot say anything about the wheel itself, force feedback is so smooth and quiet, all the buttons are there. Only thing I would recommend is a mic socket so I didn't have to log a controller in too.
I payed £300 on release day and don't regret it one bit.
At this price I would go for it if I were you lot

No longer available on both Zavvi and The Hut didn't think it would take long.(_;)

aaaaaaand ofcourse...... i sit down to order only to see its out of stock. well thats a summary of my luck. might just get the t500 cant hold the itch of purchasing a wheel in me for much longer!
