    Can anyone recommend an aftermarket horn upgrade for a 2017? Something under 100 bucks. The OEM horn is ummmm, too polite... I would like something that instills a sympathetic nervous response in distracted drivers, and that has a wire harness so I don't have to cut any wires or void my warranty.

    I was thinking about this one:

    Has anyone installed this hella?

    The hellas will be plenty adequate. Just use the supplied relay, and you'll have zero issues. Some people claim not to need a relay, but I like to err on the side of safety.

    Horns seem so impersonal. What you need is a PA so you can make them aware of what they're doing.
