Fanatec gt2 vs gt3: Differences?

Hi,
The title says it all really. Are the differences between the GT2 and GT3 purely cosmetic; that is, different wheel rims on the same base, or do I get better FFB for my 70 euros?

I think no one would go from the GT2 to the GT3, they must be so similar, I have a GT3, its good, but I I bought a Thrustmaster TX, it blows the GT3 away for FFB & precision.
What pedals are you using?

I can`t afford a TX at the moment, so it`s either one of the Fanatecs or a G27 for me. As I already have the CSR Elite pedals, buying one of the GT wheels is the logical option.

Not unless you have an xbox, or you want a wheel that lights up like a christmas tree.
The wheel angle is adjustable.
The GT2 V2 is only available on pre-order, so I suppose it`s newer.
Buy a wheel stand, they`re worth it

wheel angle.? i dont mean steering angle like 900 degrees.

I mean it looks like it sits to high up?
To high compared to what? I found it very comfy, same angle as on my CSW.
Clamp has worked fine for me until I started playing RBR, too much throwing the wheel around on that so I ordered a wheel stand, highly recommend doing that no matter what wheel you end up getting.

Kjell`s right; if you can afford a good wheel, then a stand is cheap by comparison and well worth the money. I got mine from ebay and I think it was £50 new. Stands are adjustable every which way; the only problem with mine is that the Fanatec pedals` base is so long that the pedals are too close to the wheel, and the bar that supports the wheel now blocks the brake. Eventually however, I intend to go for the racing frame with seat built in...
The Fanatec wheels are adjustable up or down, just like in a normal car. I thought you had a Thrustmaster anyway?

Also...those pedals do make a big difference. Oddly I`ve noticed it more with the accelerator than the brake. The accelerator is so precise that I don`t spin out nearly as much as I used to.
The brake still feels odd to me; I feel as if it`s not slowing the cars down at all, but clearly it is, or I`d just go straight on in the corners, rather than round them :confused:
