    Hi, I've been searching for a new steering wheel the last couple of days and since I don't want to spend a lot of money on it, here's what I found in my price range:

    - a second-hand almost new Logitech Momo for $45
    - a new Thrustmaster Ferrari Red Legend for $65
    - a new Thrustmaster Ferrari 458 Italia (not the tx one) for $90

    So, which one do you think I should get ? If you have any other suggestions that don't go over $100 I'd be glad to hear them. Thanks

    Logitech DFGT for less than 100 dollars I reckon secondhand, or maybe even new. Great wheels.

    I was on the verge of getting the Momo one but then i thought it's really old and a lot of owners have problems after a while with centering and with the pedals so I gave up the logitech momo idea

    Thrustmaster T100? I have no idea how good it is, but it's FFB and has 270 degrees. Probably inferior to a DFGT but hey.
    I'm in the market myself.

    Save a few more bucks and get a second hand G27. The terms 'proper wheel' and "under $100" don't mix well in my opinion.
