    Talking just got the horn!!

    as i'm fed up with the horn on my astra H (sound like a duck whats just been kicked in the sacks) i went to vauxhall and ordered the 400 & 500 mhz horns from the vxr, i trust this will just be a standard fit and the same wiring loom if not then the parts folk at vx have misled me

    Was that the single tone basic one? I cant believe the louder horn was an 'option'! I put a magnum aftermarket one in my mk4, but my girlfs mk5 needs a louder one - how much did the vxr horns cost you?

    So the Mk5 comes with the ghey single tone that the Corsa C also comes with? That sucks.

    Can't beat the Mk4 horn, apart from maybe the ones that came on the old square Rover 200s. They were a real "GET THE **** OUT OF MY WAY!!!" sort of job.

    I have a 2-tone air horn lying in the garage that I had on the corsa. It was excellent, actually made the bulkhead vibrate!

    Blew the horn at this old bloke who was about to step out onto the road infront of me one day, he near had a heart attack, and I got a load of cheers from some builders up on scaffold on the other side of the road. Was most humerous. 140dB @ 1' from that thing. Took 25A feed via a relay straight off the battery. Headlights dimmed when the horn blew.

    only £24 plus vat for both, better than having to wear a balaclava when driving your car just incase you need to use the road runner impesonator what lurks under the bonnet....meep meep
