Forza 4 - Wheel vs. Controller?

SO Im wondering who is using a race wheel, and who is doing it the old fashioned way of playing with a paddle/controller?

I wish I could afford one of the fanatec wheels, but they are 250 just for the wheel alone : <. Whole package with shifter and pedals would be like 499 : (.

So, I just stick with my controller

Controller :P

The wheel really is best with a full simulator set up, which can easily run $3k+

I dropped the money on a G27 for GT5, but I rarely used it since I didn't have the right seating setup. Plus, the wheel made certain aspects difficult, which has given me reservations about purchasing a dedicated wheel for Forza 4.

Fortunately, the triggers are longer and the sticks have more resistance, that I prefer the 360 controller to the PS3 controller any day. It's much easier to modulate steering input, acceleration, and brake. Lastly, I'm just cheap and would only want an expensive, Fanatec.

Using old msoft xbox360 wireless force feedback. Better than thumbsticks and dont really miss the clutch pedal. My buddy tried out the new "kinect air wheel" and didnt like it.

wheel, playing with a controller is like getting a handjob, your only getting less than half of the full experience.
