    You're right, its on the TM website. If its on the website, its legit. TM wouldn't list a retailer that wasn't authorized.

    Yea but even when Amazon is out of stock, they usually get stock in pretty quickly. Much faster than their estimates lead you believe. Wouldn't surprise me if they don't get some in stock in a week.

    Yep, if you really want the GTE rim, I would just buy the T300 or the T300RS for a small bit more than the TX. The T300RS rim although not specifically the GTE rim, is the exact same size and weight, it just has a few more buttons and Playstation labeling and I actually like it slightly more than the GTE rim.

    I think the number of buttons are identical on the two, just different placement.

    Yep, just checked both and you're correct. The manettino dial functions as three buttons so maybe the GTE actually has one more unless the PS button on the RS rim can be assigned to something else on the Playstation other than a "home" button. On the PC, they should be identical though.

    I prefer the PS rim on the T300RS but I do use mine on the PS3 and PS4 too so its nice to have the buttons already labeled. If I was using it only on the PC, I would probably prefer the GTE rim since it lacks the PS branding and looks more like a race car rim but otherwise they're identical in size, shape and weight.

    yeah cheer mate..

    im actually just waiting for confirmatino from overclockers about refund (should get today hopefully) then ill get from DABS at same price. And i have email confirming they have UK plugged stock lol

    Im still contemplating whether the GTE wheel will be a much better experience, than the TX.
