9G Civic Horn

We all know about the "Girly Horn" on the 8G Civic.
Has anyone tried the horn on the 9G & is it any different?

Seems to be a bit of an obsession in the US with fitting train horns to cars.

They're illegal in the UK.

I believe there is a pre-date before which they are legal but I'm sure its 1970 something. Any car after that date can't have a musical horn in the UK.

I'm guessing that it's more of a "your delivery has arrived" alert than the main horn of the vehicle - but obviously have no way to tell.
