    Maybe I am over doing this a bit but I love the sound of the horn in my 355 and would like to know of it is possible to get just a ferrari horn for my other cars? Would something like that be workable? Or am I the only one that thought of this?

    most auto parts places sellsimilar horns - I think FIAMM is the brand of the horns on most 80s f-cars

    Air horns like this are available at most auto parts stores...

    The compressor is a direct replacement for the old unit in a 308.

    when i first bought my 360 modena i noticed that the horn sounded like a ford or buick :) i also like the sound of a 355 air horn. you can buy a 355 air horn from ferrari for about $100 (yeah, i was shocked thet they didn't want to charge more than that). i wanted it to be installed in a professional manner so i took my car to premier motorsport in los angeles. they did a real nice job :)

    I had actually never heard a Ferrari horn before I convinced my father to buy a 355, and the first time he used it I almost laughed! I had never heard anything like it. I thought, "here we are in this powerful sports car, and it's got the wimpiest horn I've ever heard in my life." BUT, I love it. It's so distinctive and great, and I started liking it immediately. Switching the 360 Modena horn was a great idea - haven't heard it, but you guys say it's different? The 355 horn was definitely cool.

    LOL...!!!

    The horn on the Testarossa is so cool... Everytime i'm at Bruce's house, i have to beep it... The neighbors get antsy, then Bruce beats me with a tire swing in the fornt yard... It's worth it, though...

    Fantastic.

    I love that sound

    I had it on my 355.

    It makes the 360 sound postively boreing.

    you can fairly easily replace the "ford-like" horn on your 360 with a real ferrari 355 air horn relatively inexpensively. the horn itself costs about $100. i had premier motorsport in los angeles buy the horn and install it for about $250 :) i have two 360's so i replaced the horn in both of them. naturally, i don't believe that i've had a reason to honk my horn ever since! but i'm ready when the time comes :)
