By just-auto.com editorial team | 24 April 2008

"Indian horns fitted into the BMW 5 series are better quality than the ones available in Germany. The ones available in BMW's home country can withstand 50,000 honks while the ones from India can take one lakh [100,000] honks."

So said BMW India president to the Economic Times of India on Thursday.

The paper added that the German automaker's global sourcing arm has been buying made-in-India horns for the "elite range" for years, and ot just since BMW set up a local manufacturing unit.
