Default Where do you mount Hella Supertones on an 07 WRX??

Well I got my Supertones all wired up but I do not know where to mount the horns themselves. Right now one is mounted where the old horn used to be and the other is mounted on the bolt next to the hood latch. Now the only problem is is the horns don't line up evenly with each other. Now I would use the other bolt next to the hood latch but that seems to be already occupied. I was just wondering what 07 owners used so that their horns mounted up evenly and symetrical. Am I going to have to custom body work?

thanks for any responses.

Those horns are annoying. Don't mount them! I want to cut you off in peace.

Why do people love Hella's so much ?
they sound like crap !

Sure they look pretty cool, but is that really the only reason ?
for that price you can get FARRRR better sounding 12V Horns

05 Body style FTW! Does anyone really care what their horn sounds like? I personally dont even use mine, cant really think of anytime i used it either. The Hella's are worth the 60 bux for looks IMO, but thats just me.

Totally agree. Supertones have long been the ricer fad of the Subaru community.

Mine are mounted to the vertical brace just behind the grill, and grounded at the mounting point

My car doesn't have that bolt for the right one.

Mine has the one where the left one is mounted, the 2 above the left and right ones, and the one just bellow the right one.

I'd like to use the one on the upper right but that's already being used for the hood latch.

take the bolt out of the latch, put the horn there, bolt the latch back downthrough the horn.

I know this is way late but I found this while doing a Google search (since I am interested in doing this for my 07')
