    I has these horns sitting around from another vehicle and since I had the grill off I was curious to see how they fit. Removed the stock horn and these actually fit perfectly and the stock connector actually fit in the horn to so I didn’t have to modify any wiring.

    This is not for everyone as this sounds more like a euro horn. It has a somewhat higher pitch but is definitely louder. I’m sure some of you have had some Fiam or Hella horns and this is similar but produces a lower tone.

    You know me too well!

    Can’t really capture the sound difference on my phone video though... but here is what I have. There’s lots of videos online for these horns. Search! Haha

    Yeah it definitely Gets more attention compared to the regular horn. Because of the two different tones it produces.

    Right!? Everything is just better on mgm lol

    Let us know how it is if you end up installing it. Keep in mind that is not as loud as the 500/400. It is 112 vs 115 dB.

    3 dB isn't a whole lot of difference at all sound pressure wise. Reasonably priced "mod". :thumbsup:
