    Hi folks, I was wondering: has anyone ever replaced the silly OEM horn with the more masculine horn of the Lexus CT200h ?

    As the two cars are mechanically alwmost twins, maybe the Lexus horn is plug-and-play compatible with the Prius 3.

    Thanks for your answers!

    i would think any 12v horn would work. don't know if anyone has swapped the lexus.

    iirc, the threads i've read, people are upgrading to truck horns :eek:

    I was just wondering if the plug was the same for the two horns... being the two cars almost identical under the hood.

    Mine was apparently swapped with the CT. I didn’t do it though, it was before I bought the car. Honestly I’ve never been able to tell the difference. I’d recommend HELLA horns if you really want a loud horn.

    I thought there was a huge post about upgrading the factory horn w/ some aftermarket. Swapped mine out when i got the car back in 2012. Huge sound difference.

    Might be cheaper now to get a used aftermarket CT horn.
