Las Vegas, NV, May 23, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- The aftermarket SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller for the Audi A5 Convertible makes it possible to open and close the top while driving at slow speeds of up to 60 km/h (~38mph). A convenient quick single touch is enough to set the top in motion. The top can also be controlled from the original factory key fob remote.
All SmartTOP modules come with a host of bonus features. The Audi A5 kit can be programmed to activate the hazard flashers during remote top operation and a short confirmation beep when locking or unlocking the car can be activated. The windows can be controlled separately from the top by remote. Also the keyless operation via the touch door handles was fully integrated for cars that come with that option. Tapping the door handle three times activates the top. A new update to the product firmware now allows the windows to be lowered or raised by holding the door handle for 2 seconds.
“We position our SmartTOP Convertible Top product in the market as a general convenience add-on,” says PR-Manager Sven Tornow. “Our clever functions and bonus features are meant to simplify operation and make owning the convertible more fun. We always take customer feedback into consideration, like in this case. Now it is not necessary any longer to take the key fob remote out of the pocket in order to just lower or raise the windows,” Sven Tornow continues.
The second addition is meant to make using the top switch more intuitive. Now users can select which way they want the console switch to work. “In some countries the console switch is wired with ‘backwards’ logic,” Sven Tornow explains. “Thanks to the SmartTOP module our customers can now choose if they want to pull the switch to lower the top or push it instead.”
Existing customers get to enjoy the new features, too. All SmartTOP Convertible Top Modules made by Mods4cars come with a standard USB port which allows end users to apply firmware updates and conveniently configure the product with a Mac or Windows PC. Support software and update files are available online, 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, Volkswagen and Volvo.
The SmartTOP kit for Audi A5 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.
