It seems to be mostly Logitech and Mad Catz wheels available in my area (Norway). Think i would prefer Logitech over the latter.

Btw, i see that the perticular store has a "new" version of the wheel with the same name releasing 15th of may. Can really spot any differences. Is this just a re-release with a new game or is it an actual update/improvement? Any ideas?

As it seems i would have to buy a rather expensive wheel to get Xbox working along with the Mac/OSX, i've sort of given up on that thought. I find it better anyways to sit in an office chair and closer to a higher resolution display than in my couch while playing these games. I'm not very up to date on racing games, so the games inside the Mac App Store will do just fine... for now. At the moment i am playing Dirt 2 which is a really nice experience. Never played it before. Hopefully Dirt 3 also will make its way to the app store. Also thinking about picking up GRID aswell as maybe the F1 2012 game. Feral Interactive seems to be my kind of developer when it comes to racing

Logitech have pulled out of making wheels and pads so if you want a logitech buy one before the stock runs out.

i believe they said they are pulling out of console gaming business and peripherals, so they may still produce PC wheels and pedals.

Only the GT left on the UK web site.
Doesn't look promising.

Nope all the PC pads and wheels were also console compatible. Also we have been told by resellers you cannot get any stock as all items are EOL so sadly that's it.

No more pads or wheels.

I would be interested in purchasing your CSR Elite if you have not sold it yet.

Just some good news for OSX racing fans: iRacing has a beta going on right now for your corner of the world!

Only problem now is FFB drivers as has been mentioned...
