Nice price
Here is the link
http://cdon.se/hemelektronik/steelse...wheel-17803261

If only i could understand Swedish and pay with PayPal and get it shipped to the UK
i would get one and use it as the base for a button box at that price especially as it has rotary encoders

This is a special offer! And I dont think you are right that items/comodities generally are cheap in Scandinavia.
Normally when there are some general studies comparing the prices in Europe the different countries in Scandinavia ends up as the most expensive.

So how much would it cost for you to buy another and send one to Scotland? Would love to mount one to my G25 cause more buttons is always better.

just need a little diy in the bracket that comes with it

(yes I know the wheel could use a cleaning)

Its a pretty nice gesture of you Dimebag ordering this wheel for others.
Pretty nice.
But is it really that hard for people themself to order it directly from the swedish site?
I just entered the swedish words in the Google translator and voila:

köp
Leveranstid: 1-3 arbetsdaga
till kassan
visa varukorg

buy
Delivery time: 1-3 working daga
checkout
view shopping cart

How hard can it be

To make an account, you have to enter an ID number that people in Sweden have, and that others don't.
That's why I can't order one

If your point is that its impossible for non swedish people to create an account then my remark is pretty foolish.
I didnt know that.
And take the remark fully back.
Sorry.

No prob mate

Apparently so yes, impossible for non-swedish people to create an account or I misunderstood something? Anyway, when I tried to create an account, it asked me an ID number, and entering a random one didn't work.

Too bad, I really want to put one of those on my G25, but French price is... 120€. Just too fraking high

Im not 100% sure but it sounds like you are trying to login to an allready created account without having created one.
If Im right then you could try to create an account and then you will get an ID when its created.
---
I just checked it out. It looks like the swedish site want a personal security no. to create an account.
But the danish site dont need that. You can just enter your birthday instead. DDMMYYYY Like 20122001.
I just grabbed the account creation menu after a fictive buy of the wheel.
As said you can use google to translate the danish words

Or maybe you should just ask their customer service if its possible to buy from france:
Enter your question in the middle and then click "NÆSTE"
They understand english

I know about the difference between the swedish/danish site because 2 weeks ago I complained(loudly) about not being able to log in to my CDON account.
And the reason was that I tried to use a logon id from the danish site on the swedish site.
So eventhough the internet is international CDON are trying to keep some kind of national boundaries between the danish/swedish/norwegian part of the firm.

Update : they replied to my email, and won't send to France
There is a website cdon.eu that they told me to visit, but the wheel is out of stock there.

Dammit !

i would not recommend it if you have no "do-it-yourself" -skills.
after one year of use:

1. the brake-spring broke
2. i have it hard-mounted, plastics broke around the threaded nut
3. the brake-lever broke
4. the gearchange switches are dead, needed replacing

To the contrary of that Im using my SRW on the 3rd year.
2+ year of dayli use
The only issue until now have been a broken brake spring.
I bought a new small spring in a local ironmonger shop.
About the same size as a pencil spring.
Replaced it in 5 min without having to dismantl the wheel .
Only using a personal tweezer as tool.

You can allways hear stories about people who have wrecked their wheel after only 10 min.
Just check the net of how many people are telling negative stories about even very expensive wheels.
It probably depends more of how different peoples threatment of their wheels are than of the wheel itself.

At the moment I have just bought a Thrustmaster T500 base to mount the SRW wheel to.
Using the SRW only because the controls (thr/br & buttons) on the SRW are working sooo cool and presise.
