CS GT3 wheel, when?

The Mclaren GT3 V2 CSL looks nice, but sounds like it's just a little flexy and plastic, even with the CS QR.

The BMW M4 GT3 podium wheel is going to be ~5,000 from the rumors. Which is cool to compete with an FIA sticker and be that high end.

But I want to spend <$1000 for something that is better than the maca wheel and less than the BMW wheel. Seems like a perfect spot for a new CS wheel, only question is when?

You can tell us right? Promise we won't leak the date.

    The BMW M4 GT3 is BELOW 5000, not around 5000!

    So in theory also can be 99 Cents.

  • Sure but you don't mention a price that high unless you're going to be in the ballpark.

    Is it $3500? Seems like it's almost assuredly more than $2000

  • You shouldn't look at that steering wheel if you don't own a BMW M4 GT3 car ;) alone the GT3 motorsport certificates gonna push the price into a 4 digit number.

    It's definitely not intended for the mass market, that being said, it's very likely they gonna release a sim only version - Clubsport/ Podium.


    If you take a look at the prices from other manufacturers with similar amount of LED buttons and all that fancy stuff, you still can expect a 4 digit number.

    My hope is a Clubsport version with maybe less expensive buttons/switches for a pricetag like the current Formula V2 wheels:

    and a Podium version for the enthusiasts.


    At the end we have to wait, Fanatec remains quiet, tried already to get some informations, but there is an NDA in the way I guess ;)

  • Check it without the bottom part, looks way better to me, don't know if they just added for better driving.

  • The BMW M4 GT3 Steering wheel is heavily inspired by the Porsche GT3 R:

    The bottom part could be there for different reasons, maybe better sense of balance, better stability....

    or to make it easier removable:


  • I heard that it's preferred by drivers for when they need to over rotate the wheel in hairpin situations.

  • aah ok, that makes sense, thank you for the information :)

  • I have the DD1 with the Mclaren GT3 V1 CSL and even at 100% FFB I have never felt any flex , I'm about to buy the V2 as I like the wheel so much.

  • Ok functional speaking its better then, in the looks department is better without don't you guys think? today I was watching a Tesla X and S I don't know why haha but new 2021 refresh car has the driving wheel like the BMW without the top part have you guys seen it?
