Don't sweat it. It's just the bigger is better thing.

Why would you want to upgrade? Because you can.
I've had my Grover's for 7 years and they have been a great horn, very loud, never had a problem with them.
But, they're not a Nathan AirChime, and a K3 is not a K5. I'm starting to think seriously about it.
My wife gives me the look, she doesn't get it.
It's the same look I get when I want to buy another gun.

LOL.. Oh mercy! Don't I just know what you're talkin' about!
I found a way to fix that though.. put a set of Schockers in her car. She now loves it

The only way up from those is a real train horn. Trust me.. you'll want one sooner or later.

I've already been warned not to do that.

As stated above, upgrade usually means real train horns like Nathans or Leslies.
