Las Vegas, NV, December 07, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Effective immediately, Mods4cars includes a new, custom designed plug-and-play wiring adapter with all SmartTOP module orders for BMW 1 series and Mini convertibles. The adapter uses OEM plugs and connectors to ensure a perfect fit and simple connection between the module and the car electronics. Installation is simplified to the point that it can be carried out by anyone without special knowledge. No individual wires need to be handled, no cutting or splicing into wires means no permanent changes to the vehicle.
The SmartTOP module offers BMW 1 series and Mini convertible owners an array of useful convenience features and adds functionality to their cars. The convertible top can be operated with a single touch of the switch, at speeds of up to 40km/h (~28mph). It is no longer necessary to pull over and hold down the top switch. Opening and closing of the top is also possible, up to the full RF range, via simple commands from the existing car key fob. The original remote does not need to be reprogrammed or altered.
“Thanks to our one-touch feature top operation is now a breeze - Quick and uncomplicated, even from the remote,” says PR manager Sven Tornow. On Mini convertibles it is even possible to enter command sequences to determine the desired position of the sunroof/convertible top combo. Touch the switch once to open the sunroof only, touch it twice to open the top, touch it three times to open top and all windows. All these options are also available from the key remote transmitter. “The cumbersome act of holding down the switch and letting go just in the right moment is a thing of the past. The driving fun can start right away,” Mr. Tornow concludes. With the kit installed, all it takes is a single tap to fully automatically close the windows, top and sunroof, should drivers get caught in a summer rainstorm.
Some additional features present on this as well as many of the company’s other add-on modules are separate window control from the remote, one-touch closing of all windows from the center console switch, automatic door locking and unlocking and an extended mode where turning the engine on or off does not interrupt an ongoing top operation. Also worth mentioning is the master switch, which allows turning the entire module on or off quickly, while retaining the user’s individual preference settings.
All SmartTOP convertible top add-on modules made by Mods4cars come with a standard USB port, a USB cable is included with every kit. This allows end users to configure the module or update the firmware with any regular Windows PC. Support software as well as firmware updates for the modules are available online, for the life of the product and free of charge.
Modules are available for Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Mazda, Mercedes, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volkswagen and Volvo. Mods4cars offers a SmartTOP kit for almost every modern convertible on the roads today.
The SmartTOP kit for BMW 1 series and Mini convertibles is available for 249 Euros + tax.

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.
