R5 twin tone horn??
« on: 20:13, Sun 12 April 2009 »
Hi everyone.
I failed my MOT on many things, but the stupidest thing is the horn.
The tester said it was illegal as it emmitted 2 or more tones
Thats gotta be bullshit aint it sein as the horn is standard from the factory.
Do you think its worth me taking it off the campus for the test or me putting him straight?
Opinions please.

Thats rubbish most cars use a twin horn that emits 2 tones at the same time to create a more deeper sound unlike my golf that came standard with a single one and sounds like miss daisy's car !! lol beep beep

i know rite, as far as i can tell what the test means is if the horn goes one after the other alternating, which mine obviously doesnt.

It is single tone only.

It doesn't matter how many horns you have, like Lee says some have 2, one high pitch and the other low pitch. Hell you could have 5 under the bonnet but as long as they all start and finish at the same time then it should be ok.

Obviously musical ones are not.
