I hate my horn... did you changed yours?

Nothing much to say. The other day I spend 1 hour at my local dealer just trying to find a nice horn (Yes I push every horn in the showroom ) and came up with the conclusion that the best horn is the 2004 F-150. That will move people off the road!

What do you have in your Foci?

The horn really bothers you that bad? I couldn't tell you how many times I've used mine in a year, but I bet I could count em all on one hand. I hate the sound of horns as I feel most of the time they're used for no reason. I go on alert and look around to make sure I'm not about to hit/get hit by somebody and it turns out someone's whaling on it for no good reason... happens all the damn time!

Are you having your dealer or a shop put an F150 horn in? That will shock people I think, won't expect it from a Focus... now that I think of it my Mustang had a surprisingly loud and authoritative horn, not real expected from the little thing.

Buy an airhorn, and hang that thing out the window. I thought about buying one to move people out of the left lane. The reason I haven't bought one is because I'd use it too much, and have to buy more of them...I don't use my car horn because I'm embarrassed by it...LOL.

"Locomotive Train Horn Kit
Nobody ignores these horns.
These horns are extremely loud and efficient. 148-152db @ 100 PSI !
Meet and exceed all D.O.T. , N.T.S.B. and Federal Railroad Admistration requirements for railway signaling device!"

LOL...hell ya! "Nobody ignores these horns."...that's the best.
