Windtone should be a mechanical horn.

ROOTS come with warranty since these are Indian horns.

Default Hi latheesh

I suggest you look for hella 'SKODA' type horns. There are 3 models. 1st is trumpet horn (red color) whose MRP is Rs.500.00. 2nd is the same type horn premium edition (fit it & forget it) this is very high end horn & normally life span of this horn is more than 2-3 years. 3rd type is trumpet horn new generation (black color) this is made in spain & MRP is Rs.927.00 set. In my experience hella horns are the better than the others.

Good luck

Miten Doshi.

I am planning to replace stock horn so TM 80 is out. Heard Roots windtone at an accessory shop and I liked it (Rs.450). But I read that there are 2-3 types of Roots windtone is available, but the horn I checked just had 'windtone' written on the box.

Yet to hear Bosch Symphony fanfare, Where in Bangalore(around Indira Nagar) can I find it?

Got STEBEL TM MAGNUM80 for my SPARKY yesterday. It sounds great but does not drive crazy rick and bikers out of the road, but much better than my stock horn. When I asked to fit relay installer told its not required as the Spark already has a relay.

Paid 750 incl installation, its bit on the higher side I know

1)Its a pair right?
2)Spark stock one's are pair?
3) You can swap the horns via a switch?

A relay would cost only 150 max ( the Bosch one).

Hi everybody,

I am presently using Hella Twintone in my Alto, but wanted to know some genuine place in Delhi or Chandigarh where I can find Stebel products. Please help.

Thanks,
Prakhar

I do not know its a right question or not. Horn sound great at low speed but felt volume/tone reduce/change at higher speeds.

Mostly all horns share the same characteristic. Seems like you experience a lot of difference.

The problem you face is due to the solution given by your installer in above quotes

Yes, do that right now. And while he does that, get your battery current checked as well.

Probably the Stebel tone is much sweeter to their ears compared to the Hella!

My second Nautilus died today. Water ingestion no doubt. I can't fix the damn thing in the Civic where it is safe from water and I can't afford two horns a year - it's the fitting charges that kill.
