Personally, I like the fact that there is no chirp. I can hear the mechanics of the doors locking/unlocking just fine. In wife's car, horn honks with every action. Kind of annoying, in my opinion.

I don't need one but I can tell anyone who is considering it that it is the best possible thing you can add to your convertible.
