This is the reason that GB left the EU, too much regulation.
I haven't figured out where to upload the before and after videos nor how to provide the links once uploaded or I would let the rest of the fourm viewers actually hear how wimpy the stock MB horn is and How my upgrade sounds.
I do have a picture of the horn setup I installed. Total price was about $30 give or take a bit. Murelene and I took a trip to "Parts Galore" our local "U-Pull" used parts lot. It's not a junk yard, the vehicles are on a gravel parking lot, in neat rows, on stands, sorted by make, so you can get underneath if necessary. They have three locations in the Detroit area. You can go on their website and see their vehicle list and the location it is at.
Last Sunday morning we went shopping for parts. We took a few hand tools and a 12 volt lawn tractor battery equipped with test leads so we could test horns to not only insure that they worked properly but to also determine whether the tone and volume suited out needs.
Murelene and I decided on three horns. A pair from a 1996 Cutlass Ciera, the high volume low tone horn from a mid 90's Cadillac De Ville, and the horn relay w/ base from the De Ville, along with the necessary wiring harnesses. $15 was spent at Parts Galore, Wire, connectors, tie wraps, tape, screws, etc comes to about another $15.
I am getting slow and old and I am not near as flexible as I used to be so installation took the better part of a day, BUT, we now have a horn system loud enough that would impress any trucker.
