Wink louder horn advice

Just bought a 97 D 90 soft top yesterday and noticed that the horn isn' that load. Can anyone give me some advice on aftermarket horns or websites/threads already posted? I''m a newbie!

Can you still get Hadley air horns? The "Bully" setup is nice, but pricey. Though it does give you a 12volt compressor, tank and air chuck too.

If you don't want to blow people off the road with air horns, I would suggest dropping by your local BMW wrecking yard and getting a pair of horns from any 3,5,6 or 7 series after 1983 or so. They are louder than the LR's and a better sound in my opinion. Make sure to get an original pair though, because they are tuned a a pair. I got a pair for my Range Rover and for my brothers Jeep for $10 ea set. The original Jeep ones sound like a sick goat. I think the later model Vokswagen and Benz horns are good too.

I've used the Hella air horns, and while they are nice and loud, they do clog-up with dust and fail if you're using them in dusty areas, like gravel roads on on sand.

I can send you a UK-spec horn, about half the volume of the NAS ones!

Cheers,
Nick.

I've been looking online, and as far as I can tell, the most expensive horns money can buy are vintage bosh dual-tone horns from the 60s-70s, used on Porsches and Mercedes'. Anyone know anything or ever heard them? I saw a pair of NOS ones going for more than $700 on eBay! They must sound epic or be super rare, or both.

Anyone ever heard any multi-tone horns from vintage cars? If so, which ones?

Yes, and you are probably better off with some of the other choices mentioned.

For example, nothing invites an ass-kicking like the "Voice of Road Runner" beep-beep horn from the late 60's-early 70's (plus it is painted light purple...).
