I'm glad the horn has found its rightful place back on the center of the steeting wheel.
I use them occasionally on the highway on my way home from work. The lane to merge onto 95N from 91S can be somewhat of a blind curve and I approach cautiously. With the sun positioning and people that are literally stopped in the line of cars while the other lanes continue on at 50-60+, it necessitates the use to let the people behind you, or those who may want to come over last minute that your not only slowing down, but stopping due to a backup of traffic.
I won't keep them on though once the guy behind me gets it and slows down as well. Other than that I don't use them.
I had an '84 Escort that had the hazard button on the top of the steering column so you have to either reach around or through the wheel to activate it. Also had the horn on the stalk which I found by accident.

Another gripe about the E90 ergonomics. I always find the window switches quite a long reach.

Now that I know where it is, it makes sense to have just the one button in a central location, and it's not hard at all to reach.

My first car was an 80's J-body. It had that horrible switch
At one point, I had three sets of them on my key ring in my pocket. To this day, they were some of the smallest car keys I ever carried - not the giant remote-control monstrosities that "modern" car keys are.
