I'm on an 08 S model.

I got the FIAM air horn. I also bought the relay.

I'm wondering where to hook this sucker up. What I've read so far is I should use the existing horn wiring if possible.

So... hook up the existing horn wiring to the relay placed back under the seat??? Then run wiring to the front for the horn? It says keep it away from heat and moisture.

What did you all do? Relay? No relay?

Thanks,

Rob.

Installed the horns last night. I bought a high tone and low tone from FIAM.

1). They ARE NOT loud like a "BIG RIG". They sound like a Buick. Don't be fooled. But they are loud and will get attention. I was just let down thinking I would have an outrageously loud horn and it sounds like a car.

2) They are more expensive online. I picked up a second, identical FIAM horn from NAPA auto parts for $10 or so.

3) Definitely use a relay and the link at the top of this thread to understand what and why.

4) If you have a newer S model, my pics might help you decide where to put them.
