Good but some issues
I have had these pedals for almost 2 months now and they are a great purchase. They feel so much better than my old G29 pedals and make it so much easier to trail brake.
They are really good pedals

But...
6 days after getting them the throttle already started squealing and I had to spend a lot of time greasing them up with lithium grease (which is included and a plus).

The customizability of the pedals are great but it takes a lot of time (and i mean like 2 hours) just to change the faces. I would still give it a plus on this side for the customizability.

Just 2 days ago on of the grippy things under the pedals that stops it from gliding fell off and won't really go on again.
But if you are mounting them on a cockpit it won't be a problem.
Overall I would still definantly recommend them.
Outdated and outclassed in the current market.
The fundamental design of the Fanatec Clubsport Pedals has been around for well over a DECADE, like the Logitech G series of wheels. It's about time for a change, Fanatec.

There have been many new pedal sets that beat the Clubsport V3s in the "entry-level-high-end" segment (HE Sprints, BJ Steel GT, Simforge MK1, DC pedals, etc), and is totally beat in the price-per-dollar segment by the TM T-LCMs and even their own CSL Pedals (with the load cell upgrade). It lays in the purgatory between mid-range and high-end for people who don't want to take the full dive.

I've owned these pedals for a year and a half and I've never truly been "satisfied" with the way they've felt. It's always been "I'll just deal with it for now." I've tried virtually every single pedal face/extension combination, every brake performance kit combination, and endless spring/tension combinations. None of them ever felt "just right". The design of these pedals is full of compromise for the sake of simplicity, and it really shows once you start to configure them.

Of course, if you're someone who can just plug in something and enjoy it right away, regardless of feel and ergonomics, these pedals should give you no trouble at all. They are a great set of pedals on their own and are built very well. If you're an OCD-addled weirdo like me however and spend more time tinkering with your rig, setup, and ergonomics than you spend on track, you aren't going to like these.
A good Buy
I've had these for a couple of years and never regretted buying them, I think at the price point they are about the best you can get and the experience is light years away from the cheapo Thrustmaster pedals that came with my T300. The quality and feel from the pedals is top notch and I've not had any problems in many hours of use.

Frustrating that the brake performance kit is an extra purchase, it really should be included as standard. Also don't be swayed by the vibration motors on the pedals I find them pretty much useless, I can never feel them.

Only buy if you have a stand or rig to mount them to, freestanding on the floor would be useless. Anybody else looking for decent load cell pedals but reluctant to spend crazy money just buy these.

stuck between these and the heusinkveld ultimates. I am considering the ultimates+ and not the sprints because the difference is relatively small so might as well get the ultimates. But then you are getting into the land of dimishing returns.

V3s vs Ultimates at 3x the price vs Sprints at 2.2x the price
