    Default CX horn

    How does the two stage horn work? Is there a separate small horn for the first stage?

    My air horns work, but I recall on my first CX there was two stages. A first gentle press of the horn button sounded a polite beep, then as you pressed harder the air horns sounded for a more urgent ("get out of the way you f'ing d'ck head!") sound.

    Later cars don't have that ... Only air horns (the air horns spool up and sound much more quickly than the earlier CX horns). I dont htink the horn button has two positions either

    I think with current driving manners (of others of course) proceeding straight to level 2 to be the better option.

    I have the old CX horns on the C5... happy with them...very happy. I had to fit the air horns and the round metal beep one to get the right sound...
