Las Vegas, NV (USA), February 19th, 2014 – The SmartTOP Convertible Top Controllers made by aftermarket automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars are add-on kits that provide convenience and simplify top operation. It is possible to open and close the top while driving at slow speeds with just a single tap. The switch no longer needs to be held down for the entire duration of the operation.
Additionally, the kits allow owners to use their original factory key remotes to open and close the top from afar. SmartTOP customers can already open their top while still approaching the car. A quick key combination on the remote sets the top in motion. At the first sign of impending rainfall the top can be quickly closed without the need to run and get in the car first. No changes need to be made to either the keys or the receiver systems.
Apart from these two main functions all SmartTOP modules come with bonus features depending on the car. The kits for BMW 4 Series (F33) and BMW 6 Series (F12) now received an update to include a new feature: If so desired, the direction of operation for the console switch can be reversed. “For some of our customers the new factory default on some models is counter intuitive. The switch needs to be pulled to open and pushed to close.” explains PR-Manager Sven Tornow.
The new SmartTOP feature allows customers to select their own preferred way on any model. Pull to open or push to open. Currently all US models come with the switch working the opposite way as on Euro (and other) models. With SmartTOP all customers can choose which way they like, no matter where they are and which way the switch came from the factory.
Mods4cars continually works on improving existing products and gladly takes customer feedback into consideration. New and existing customers get to profit from new features and updates. All SmartTOP modules come with a USB port and can be configured and updated free of charge with a program available for Windows and Mac.
The SmartTOP Convertible Top Controllers for BMW 4 Series and 6 Series Convertibles come with a host of bonus features. The windows can be controlled by remote separately from the top. An extended mode allows starting or stopping the engine while the top is still moving and the modules can be temporarily disabled while retaining all user configuration settings. Both come with a full plug-and-play wiring adapter for quick and easy installation and removal without leaving any traces or damage.
SmartTOP kits are available for: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and VW. Other BMW models like 1 Series, 3 Series, Z4 and Mini are also supported. The complete kits for BMW 4 Series F33 and BMW 6 Series F12 are available for 299 Euros + tax each.

Mods4cars was founded in 2002 with the idea to add a highly demanded feature to the otherwise almost perfect Porsche Boxster: Comfort One-Touch roof operation while driving at slow speeds. The resulting product offered not only that, but also allowed quick and easy installation by just swapping out a relay box, thus leaving no traces and no permanent changes on the vehicle. The first SmartTOP roof controller was born.
The success of their first products in Germany and Europe prompted them in late 2004 to move operations to the USA, to be able to serve the American market as well as all other English speaking countries such as Australia, UK and South Africa from one central location. Their business has grown to a full-fledged international corporation with an office in Las Vegas and a full line of innovative products as well as distributors and installation partners all over the globe.
Being highly specialized in the development and distribution of aftermarket roof- and comfort controllers since 2002 allows them to offer an unsurpassed level of competence and product quality. Their main goal is optimization of each individual product to a maximum in compatibility, usability and intuitive operation. They put greatest effort into development and quality checks of all their products to achieve this goal and meet all expectations of their customers.
The extraordinary success of their products is also based on the great communication with their customers, which usually already starts for each new product during the development and prototyping phase.
