SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller for BMW Z4 Roadster and Mini Convertible Now Available with Ultra Plug-and-Play Wiring Adapter

The retrofit SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller for BMW Z4 Roadster and Mini Convertible now ships with a custom designed Ultra Plug-and-Play wiring adapter. It guarantees a very quick and simple installation. The SmartTOP itself makes it possible to operate the convertible top while driving and from the original factory remote fob.

Las Vegas, NV, January 22, 2015 --( Aftermarket automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars has greatly improved the wiring adapter which ships with the SmartTOP kit for BMW Z4 (E85) and Mini Convertibles (R52). The retrofit module now comes bundled with an Ultra Plug-and-Play adapter. This new, custom designed part makes installation of the kit and connecting the module to the vehicle electronics extremely easy by simply connecting two plugs. Original OEM connectors guarantee a tight and secure fit.

“We are happy to announce availability of this new wiring adapter which will be included with our SmartTOP kits for BMW Z4 Roadster and Mini Convertible, effective immediately,” says PR-Manager Sven Tornow. “In order to install the module, all that one needs to do is connect two plugs. It is no longer necessary to handle single wires or crimp contacts,” Sven Tornow continues. “This now makes it possible for anyone with minimal knowledge to install the kit and enjoy the benefits of the SmartTOP module,” he explains.

With the SmartTOP module installed it is possible to open and close the top while driving at slow speeds of up to 40km/h (~28mph). Thanks to the integrated one-touch operation, the switch does no longer have to be held down. Both hands can return to the steering wheel immediately.

Additionally the top can be controlled from the existing key fob remote. “On hot days our customers can already open their top while still approaching the car,” says Sven Tornow. “And in cases where the car is left parked with the top down, it can be closed remotely at the first sign of rain,” he concludes. No changes are necessary to the car keys or receiver system.

The module comes with a host of bonus features, all of which can be configured individually: The windows can be controlled separately from the top (Z4). All windows can be opened and closed using one-touch convenience from the console switch. An extended mode even allows the engine to be started or stopped while top operation continues. The entire module can be temporarily deactivated while retaining all user settings for when it is reactivated.

Additionally to adjusting the settings in the car, it is also possible to configure the SmartTOP module with a Mac or PC at home. A standard USB port is present on all Mods4cars products. This port also allows end users to install firmware updates which are available online and free of charge.

SmartTOP Convertible Top kits are available for the following popular brands: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and VW.

The kit for BMW Z4 Roadster and Mini Convertible is available for 209 Euros + tax.

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.
