New: Customisable Button Caps!

edited March 19 in Blog

This simple but highly effective upgrade will make your Fanatec steering wheels unique.

 The new Button Caps and Sticker Set allows for a huge variety of steering wheel customisation - combine coloured backgrounds with black or white text/symbol stickers for more than 20,000 variations.

The 127 different black and white text/symbol stickers include all commonly used sim racing button assignments, including brake balance, DRS, and engine/fuel management.

The caps are easy to install and compatible with most Fanatec steering wheels. Plastic tweezers are also included to avoid fingerprints and for easy removal of existing caps.

The new button caps have a different shape which allows to add two stickers (colour+symbol) and get a flat surface. It is therefore more advanced than any other sticker set which is available on the market.


98 additional rectangular stickers are also provided for drivers who prefer to place the button labels on the wheel itself. Some small Fanatec logo stickers are also included.


We’d love to see photos of your Fanatec wheels with the new button caps, we’ll share our favourites on our social channels!

  • I'd love to show you a photo of my wheel with these button caps but I can't bring myself to spend €20.99 for the shipping. Surely you could find a more cost effective way of sending small, light low value items?

  • Price and shipping is a really big joke - Fanatec megalomania again !

  • Like the buttons very much but shipping must be a mistake? Would buy if shipping was reasonable, i.e. a jiffy bag and normal surface post.

  • Looks great. Price and postage a tad too high too. It's something for people who really really want it. 20 + 3/5 euro bubblewrap envelop will be a better price-range. or so.

    Price a little high - but ok... shipping almost doubles the price... nope not happening.

    Hope you can have them available via distributors eventually so we dont end up paying over £50.00 for stickers and a few button caps...

    30 Euros should be item inclusive of delivery at the most.

  • Besides the price ranting here is my first layout of the caps on the BMW GT2 wheel. The caps itself fit quite good on the buttons and putting on the stickers is very easy because of the edges on the caps. The stickers can be placed very exactly on the caps. If the two sticker layers are placed on the caps you don't feel the edge anymore, it feels like a flat cap. Anything at all I'm quite happy with the caps and stickers.

    Just a very minimalistic design to fit the colors of the Podium Button Module Endurance by using yellow, red and green caps with black background and the respective button mappings. "Default" buttons are way too colorful in my opinion, I like to have it more minimalistic^^

    Absolutely love this new Button Caps! :)

  • Looks good!!!! Will definitely get this one, but remember the real thing look like this. But in our case functionality is king, I like it.


  • Just so buyers are aware, I purchased these and the cost delivered in Europe was over 80 Euros for one set:

    25 Euros - the product

    27 Euros - shipping UPS. There is no other choice to go normal mail, like many other companies I purchase products from in Germany.

    30 Euros - ADDITIONAL charges from UPS I have to pay before they will deliver to me.

    • 5 Euros is related to actual import duties.
    • 25 Euros is the UPS administration fee on top.

    So, be ready to spend an enormous amount for some small bits of plastic and a sticker sheet. I am mostly annoyed that Fanatec simply does not have ANY other shipping choice, other than UPS. Regular European mail would be fine for this type of envelope. But it is impossible, simply Fanatec chooses not to offer a reasonable method of shipment.

    Fanatec, you may blame 'cost of importing' or some nonsense like that (it was 5 Euros...). The choice of shipping methods available is YOURS. So, as far as I'm concerned, it is YOUR choice that the UPS fees are so out of control for something like this. That IS in your control, because you don't offer a different option. Please offer different shipment possiblity. UPS always has additional fees for the customer that are WAY too high.

  • I have been looking for these caps since I bought the carbon formula. And now that I have found them..... 30 +21 euros shipping ?? It seems crazy to me and although I want them a lot, I am forced to give it up

  • Is the shipping cost some sort of joke. This would be insta buy from me if the shipping was more reasonable.
