When I went searching for a 2 or 3 Pin air-horn, all the shopkeepers said that they have stopped stocking air-horns because it's illegal. Although I knew that it's illegal since most of my drive involves through rural areas where there is almost 0% noise pollution.

So what is the cost of a typical 2 or 3 Pin air-horn ?

And is it still available in your cities ?

Challenger, I'd recommend the Stebel Nautilus over the Hellas because it is really compact and doesn;t have pipes, trumpets etc. Yet it delivers almost the same output (139db is no joke) and has worked for years without trouble.

Also, because it's small, it is easy to fit. I tried fitting Stebel twin trumpet air horns earlier because they looked so big and loud. But they're not really meant for a car. So you have to find all kinds of space to squeeze them into, and then when you shut the bonnet you find half the sound is muffled, so no point in having an air horn at all. The Stebel's size and shape make it easy to fit right near the air vents in the front bumper, so you get maximum effect.

Costs about 800-900 bucks max. Wiring and fitting might be a bit more, but it's definitely worth it. Ironically, I use the horn less now, because I know that I can actually do something about the jackass in front of me.
