When the first generation of Imprezas (GC) came to the USA in the late 1990's the horns were very weak and underwhelming. At the same time the cars were getting popular due to their association with rallying. Many GC owners were buying aftermarket fog and driving lights (aka rally lights) for their cars, and most of the time those lights were Hellas because they are the best performing light for a low cost. Therefore it was no surprise that they also bought Hella Supertones at the same time. Later Impreza owners looked back at their hero's from the previous generation and copied their style.
