Whats the best upgrade plug and play horn? :*
Did you just wire them both to the T5.1 supply or use a relay?I fitted a pair of PIAA sports horns after doing a search on the forum, easy fit and bloody loud, scared the out my sister in law the other day. Can't remember if brought them on eBay or amazon ?. The standard horn on my 2010 t5.1 was a joke, it was just a single unit , on the plus point it did make people laugh.
Same as me - also good for scattering SLG's who think it's fun to saunter accross the road in front of you I:.A friend of mine have upgraded his to train horns with compressor and everything in the back. The sound will give you a heart attack if you don't see it coming. I'm considiring this seriously now after all these idiot bus drivers in Norway.
I really want to do that too, but all the hassle with compressor and everything puts me off. If I ever went on Air suspension, it would be a no-brainerSame as me - also good for scattering SLG's who think it's fun to saunter accross the road in front of you I:.
I'm not talking about the about the 'ebay ones above'. Look at my first post.tk there is no compressor on the ebay ones above, if swapping a horn seems daunting maybe leave your van alone

I bought a set of PIAA superior deep bass horns from rally prep on ebay, about £35 inc P&P, after comparing the various types on youtube. They are lower 330&400 hertz sound frequency; compared to most 400/500 & almost truck-like. Easy to fit either with either crimp connectors or soldering (easier than crimping IMO).
Remove 3 No. T25 torx screws from the O/S undertray between the fog insert and wheel arch and the single horn is easily unbolted from the conveniently provided VW twin bracket.
I connected the earth wires from each of the horns to the black/yellow original and the live feed to brown.
Instructions are in Japanese, but earth is the terminal closest to the horn outlet and there are 2 very long wires provided in the kit that you can half to save buying any more wire.
You can bend the VW bracket easily to point the horns down to the holes in the undertray.
Don't make the mistake I did and hold the horns when your assistant tests them......my ears are still ringing!
