    Horn replacement

    The horn, the sweet music that keeps urban life flowing smoothly. And you know you hate the Micra horn. It's bad enough you handed in your man card and are now driving something something only one step above a golf cart. But hey, at least it's got a real gas engine under the hood, and nobody says you can't have a real horn under there too.

    Well, it only takes five minutes to bolt on some real respect. This manly horn is about $15 bucks at any crap tire.

    Pathetic punk in jail pants, shuffling along and slowing down the grannies in the cross walk?
    Desperate dude (yeah, it's got a Hemi) that can't afford to keep his truck at a proper speed?
    Homie that hasn't clued into a green light (or 2014), 'cause he's so into blasting the rust off his Honda with NWA?
    Ugly kid on the DQ patio with the oversize ice cream?

    Blast 'em all I say!

    I love this fantastic Micra. Love the ride. Love the colour. Love the size. Love the light in the hatchback. Love the bluetooth. Love the fact the rear windows go all the way down. Love the headlights that someone took time to aim in the right places. Love the fuel filler being on the drivers side. Love that the fuel filler door locks from inside the car. (No need for key.) Love the stainless steel license bolts put on by dealer.

    "Freeway blaster" -- no doubt about what the aim is. Did you replace the original horn, or add this one to it? I like the 2-note horn myself.

    LOL!

    Personally, I like the Micra's horn. So many horns are so obnoxious and loud and sound like they're saying, "HEY ASSHOLE!" while the Micra's horn is more along the lines of, "Excuse me, sir/madam." Perfect for letting the inattentive person ahead of me know that the light has turned green, or letting someone know they forgot to check for me in their blind spot when they're changing lanes, all without causing undue stress or road rage. For some of us, being a man isn't enough; we want to be a gentleman.

    In our culture obsessed with absurd excess, the Nissan Micra is my counterculture car of choice.

    I just replaced the original horn. The new horn is actually not quite as loud as advertised...the sound is typical of what is found on most American brand cars.

    I can totally understand the need to get a manly horn, I had an 07 Yaris with a roadrunner meep meep horn .. it was totally embarrassing.
    I stole the manly horn from my wifes 90 Mustang, left her P.O.'d.

    I like the dual note setup. Looking forward to the demonstration.
