Las Vegas, NV, October 27, 2012 --( Since this summer, the aftermarket SmartTOP roof top module offered by Mods4cars has been available for BMW 3 Series Convertible type E46, Z4 Roadster E85 and Mini Convertible type R52. It is also the first time the manufacturer supports I-Bus types. “We have followed our customer requests and are glad to be able to offer our modules to older BMW models,” says PR manager Sven Tornow. Up to now the well-thought-out SmartTOP module created by Mods4cars was only available for cars with CAN data bus.

The roof top module made by Mods4cars allows the opening and closing of the convertible top at speeds of up to 40 km/h. Thanks to the one-touch-function a short key press is all that is required to activate the unit; gone is the annoyance of having to continually depress the top control button. Additionally the convertible top handling is possible from a distance using the factory remote fob without any modifications to the key being necessary.

The windows can be opened or closed separately via remote key fob. Turning the ignition on or off will not interrupt the convertible top process. Single functions can be programmed according to individual desire. The complete removal of the entire module is possible at any time.

The roof top module ships with a standard USB port which allows the module to be configured on every PC or Mac and enables the customer to access free software updates as they become available. In a BMW 3 Series Convertible and the Z4 Roadster, the programming of the module can also be done via the in-dash LCD. The configuration can be completed in the car and every single function will be shown on the in-dash LCD.

For a quick and easy installation the modules are shipped with a wiring adapter. This provides an easy connection between car electronics and SmartTOP module. There is no need to cut any wires. That is why a removal of the entire kit is possible without leaving any traces.

The comfort extension is available for 209,00 Euro + tax and also the follow-up models BMW 3 Series Convertible type E93, Z4 Roadster E89 and Mini Convertible R57.

During the introductory period for the latest product for BMW I-bus types Mods4cars offers a 10% discount on the list price. The promotion will last until November 15th 2012, use voucher code “ibus10” on or

About Mods4cars:

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.
