As above, Mclaren rim cannot be used with this base according to the fanatec site and you'd also need pedals, so we're up to 801 euro + VAT. 801 euro is 690 GBP + VAT = 828, not including shipping or duty. Its going to be cheaper to buy from the UK site. I didn't say it was an entry level gear wheel, what I said was if fanatec want a slice of the logitech/thrustmaster market then'd need a product thats around half that price to tempt people away. £1000 is firmly still enthusiast level spending.
