My mate wants a set so i thought i would at least find them for his bday

I am thinking they are air horns or something?
ANY IDEAS?





Cheers

I don't like either in the grills. The horns look shite but each to their own

Hella Super Tones. You can get them for about $50. I had them on my 2012 WRX.

Note: they are very loud!

Having people cut you off isn't as frustrating with these, as you can just hit the horn and watch them swerve with fright!

Edit: I wish you had posted this sooner! They're so cheap that I didn't bother taking them off my WRX when I traded it in. I would've just sent them to you for free lol.

First off, the two cars you posted are the same. So, that's one car lol.
Second, we don't do that. Usuaully JDM and Subaru in particular. They are horn upgrades.

If you want louder horns, do something no one has to see looking at your car. Supertones are disgusting JDM teenager garbage. You might as well throw some friggin whistle tips on your exhaust.

I used to have a set of Highway Blasters on my Solara when I lived in Monterey Park, CA*, which gave me a sense of security when some idiot would dart out of a driveway at the extreme last minute like a cataract-infected dog or use the opposite side of traffic as a left turn lane. Wonder how those compare in terms of volume, but either way I prefer the "honk" of EU/US cars/Highway Blaster to the weak-sounding-no-matter-what "beep" of JP cars/Hella Supertones.

*City with heavy Asian population, but 1. The stereotype lives itself out as I was always inches away from avoiding accidents every week and 2. I'm part Asian so this is not a racial epithet ;-) .

This should give you a good idea what supertones sound like.


They're annoying as hell.

Now, personally, I like police style bull horns because they tend to get the message across very well and as far as I know they aren't illegal to use.


And if some of you feel like going Gumball 144 with your E90/92's
