Nice,

You can also get the following harness cable:


These horns and bracket are the ones that come with the newer Taos and are the same ones used in the Seat Leon:


The downside of this OEM bracket is that it fits under the front bumper. The kit that you posted is easier to install behind the grill because of the bracket.

Saw B2BFAB is coming out with a few new items for the Taos and had to take a closer look. For all of those who complain about the weak horn, myself included, there will be a plug-n-play solution in the near future.

B2BFAB Dual Horn Kit

For our Canadian drivers, who cannot tolerate the pathetic apology that is the stock horn, this dual horn kit will be available from RPI Equiped in Richmond, BC (www.rpiequipped.com) when they start shipping.

Met the B2BFAB guys at Dubs at the Lake this weekend and they were kind enough to demonstrate the dual horn setup for me. It makes a huge difference and is a proper horn sound. We talked about install and it looks super easy.
Will the install (removing the grill) affect the distance sensor? I read somewhere that if you disconnect it for some reason it will have to be re-calibrated.

Based on the conversation I had with the guys, they showed me on their Taos that you only have to remove the screws at the top of the grill and there is enough flex in the grill that you can remove the old and install the new horns.

I removed the top screws and pulled the grill forward a while ago, just to see if there was room for a (DIY) dual horn upgrade. No issues afterwards. You could quite possibly puff some talcum powder or something on there before you start so when you replace the screws you can see the outline of where they were before.
The kit looks like it shouldn't be hard to do, as long as you have enough space to get your hand in there.
