    Evening all. Im looking for a bit of advice from personal experience on the best wheel and pedals fot the 360. With f1 2012 on the verge of being released i thought i would treat myself. I have been looking at the csr setups but i have no idea what to go for after playing with an awful mad catz wheel for so long.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance

    I have no personal experience to back it up, but I think you'd be best off with the CSR-Elite. It's probably the best wheel ever made for Xbox and Fanatec will (or have?) release a formula rim for it so you can get even closer to the real feel.

    Thanks for the advice kjell.

    What would others suggest? i dont want to jump in buying a wheel for hundreds and end up disappointed. What do others use on xbox? what are the pro's/con's of the setup you have??

    What about if your on a budget, ms wheel second hand ( but the pedals are poor ) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Microsoft...K_Controllers_Attachments&hash=item2a22cd0313
    or a Fanatec Porsche Turbo S Wheel (PS3/PC/XBOX360) $200

    although the elite wheel is very good, nearly bought one myself a while back. Its to expensive for me in the end, and realised how much i still liked my g25 so stuck with what i had...:)
    then once you have a wheel you need something like a http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Wheel-Sta...s_VideoGameAccessories_JN&hash=item4d00d1cf56
    i still have my ms wheel and wheel stand pro and as long as i have a xbox i wont get rid.
    Its good enough and does the job...
    or what was said to me buy a pc you'll never look back...:D

    this is just my own view on the products Ive used...
    PS my fanatec wheel broke and at the time had a few issues, which i'm told have now been fixed with a firmware upgrade..
