I use train horns with an on-board air compressor. Go big or go home.

That WRX Wagon is beautiful.

Purely a visual enhancement for me. They match my lug nuts lol.

I rarely use my horn, only if I drive in NYC which I try to avoid.

I guess I'm one of few that:

1) finds the stock horn functional and loud enough
2) rarely needs a horn because I usually don't have time, or available hand, to hit the horn when some yahoo is about to run me off the road.
3) doesn't see the need to use the horn, but maybe once a year

I'm all for clean and improved styling enhancements, but this isn't one of them. It looks like you have a super cheap 6" neon plastic speaker behind the grill. I think this whole horn thing is just one of those cheap "me too" mods.
