They discontinued it ages ago, so you won't find it new from retailers anymore. You sometimes find a new and packaged one on ebay, but they go for silly money now - often 3 times the original retail price.

MS has just announced the replacement though (details HERE (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/news/news-8664-E3-2011--Microsoft-Reveals-the-Wireless-Speed-Wheel-Controller.html)). Looks pretty sleek, but I'm not convinced its gonna be as good to use yet.

There really hard to find and when you do find one there more than they where when they were new .. Which is around 100 to 150 .. Of which the new price was 89.99 ..

It is a very good steering wheel though I used it at the eurogamer expo on a forza 3 triple screen set-up

This is coming soon:

Other than that here is also a pretty slick Fanatec coming

I'd prefer the Fanatec but they are wicked expensive... I found a used MS wheel like new condition for 50 bucks on the local craigslist. Used will be your only likely chance of finding one because those things are not worth 300-500 unopened they were only mediocre wheels in the first place.

And originally the MSRP was I think 149.99 USD but about a year after they came out it dropped down to 89.99 USD and they got discontinued some time in 2007 I believe.

Go to ebay and look for one made by LG. The microsoft brand products are all crappy and have a tendency to last less than a year. LG is your best bet for ANY peripherals for the xbox.

They're really expensive now. I would either buy the new official one when it comes out or buy an unofficial one.

I just wish there was a wheel that works on both platforms that doesnt cost an arm and a leg. I'm disappointed in the wheel selection on the 360.

I have the 360 wheel and as much as I do love it, it has its problems. It is also pretty old now so I reckon you would be better off investigating 3rd party manufacturers, especially if you have to pay exorbitant amounts people are trying to peddle the original 360 wheel for.

Unless your really into racing games and prefer a wheel compared to a joystick, I really wouldn't recommend the MS racing wheel.

As was mentioned before, they are discontinued and on top of that they don't last long and add in that a lot of them were recalled because the electric cord on some of the older models could cause fire/break down and start smoking. If you do end up getting one used, make sure the seller isn't selling you a broken one.

I picked one up on clearance quite some time back, and although it was fun for a little while, it just made controlling some racing games more difficult then the standard controller to me.
