    Criteria:

    <200$ USD (used is fine, actually better as I'd like good bang/$)
    Unless the wheel is cheap (<=120$), a shifter + clutch pedal is practically a must! (fun factor)

    PS3 compatibility (with GT5?) is a medium plus
    Not SUPER loud is a small plus
    Good mounting is a small plus
    Shifter can be put on the left side is a big plus

    G25. Fits your entire criteria. Since the G27 came out, the G25 can be had for less than $200. If you decide you want to save your money and spend like $60-$70, get the Logitech Momo Force. I have it, works great, lots of fun. Not PS3 compatible though.

    I'd get a used Driving Force Gt over a Momo I think...

    The G25 looks nice, but idk if it really is worth 200$, or if it is because it is popular that it stays at such a price

    The G27 can be had for under $200 but I've heard the G25 is actually a better wheel (I haven't been able to test this theory myself).

    The Fanatec Carrera wheel also gets good reviews at $160+s/h but the website is unforgivably bad. If you're interested in a Fanatec wheel I've found the feature comparison to be essential to figuring out the best setup for your needs/budget.

    The Driving Force GT seems to be a good deal if you can get it around $100.

    Also this youtube channel has fairly comprehensive reviews of almost every commercial wheel. They tend to be overly lenient in reviews but useful nonetheless. Assume that 70% is average to them (instead of 50%) and realize that they often use arbitrary scales like 1-15 (instead of 1-10).

    thxs guys... Sorry, but I personally do not like the momo, thxs for the offer (though PMing me would have been smarter :p)

    That Fanatec was why first choice, but I was hoping to find it used somewhere... :(

    I'll see if there is any wheel I'm missing, then I'll try to find the best used deal :D

    Could probably get that under 70$ used....

    Wonder if a used Driving force GT is a better buy
