Horn Sound

Does anyone else think that the horn sounds a bit crap on the F10?

All my previous BM's have had the same good meaty dual-tone horn - wheras the F10 seems to be a bit pathetic by comparison. Maybe there is something wrong with it

Perhaps it's better sound insulation. It is dual-tone and I'd be amazed if the sounder was a different part number from any other in the range.

Do you not notice that it is a completely different tone to your 3-series?

If you reckon not - then there is definitely something up with mine!

Yes I hate my F10 horn - no matter how lightly you tap the button you get a loud uncivilised blare. My 330 and previous BMs were fine. The last car I had with such an vulgar horn was a Vectra. What have they done with it?

Yep mine's just like that and I'm sure they all are then. Must enquire with the dealer.
