SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller for Volkswagen EOS Now with New Plug-and-Play Wiring Adapter
The SmartTOP aftermarket convertible top add-on module offered by automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars is now available with an upgraded, custom designed Plug-and-Play wiring adapter for Volkswagen EOS. The new adapter guarantees an even simpler installation and a tighter, more secure connection of the product to the vehicle electronics.
The wiring harness is used to connect the aftermarket product with the integrated electronics in the car by simply unplugging and swapping a couple of connectors. Mods4cars has now redesigned it in order to make installation even easier and all connections more secure. All plugs and sockets used on this new version are protected against reversing polarity. Connectors snap and latch together just like the OEM ones.
“We continuously work on making installation of our products as easy and foolproof as possible,” says PR-Manager Sven Tornow. “We are happy to present a redesigned convertible top add-on kit for Volkswagen EOS which sports an even simpler installation. Thanks to the new connectors it is now impossible to accidentally reverse polarity or in other ways connect them in the wrong way. A clear click signals a safe and tight connection,” he concludes.
The SmartTOP module allows drivers to open and close the top while driving at slow speeds or by using the original key fob remote. Convenient one-touch operation automatically raises or lowers the top when using either the console switch or the remote. The original key remotes do not need to be reprogrammed or altered in any way.
Additionally the SmartTOP module for VW EOS comes with a host of bonus features, all of which are user configurable. It is possible to control windows, sunroof and convertible top separately, the console switch operation direction for top and sunroof can be reversed and the module offers an option to allow top operation with the hitch installed. The passenger side mirror can be automatically tilted down as soon as the reverse gear is engaged.
An extended mode allows top operation to continue while the engine is being started or stopped and the entire module can be disabled temporarily while retaining all user settings. A USB port also comes standard on every module and allows product update and configuration using software available online free of charge.
Mods4cars also offers a SmartTOP module for the VW Golf VI Convertible. Other SmartTOP kits are available for the following brands: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and VW.
The SmartTOP for Volkswagen EOS now ships with the new, redesigned Plug-and-Play wiring adapter for the unchanged price of 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.
