Las Vegas, NV (USA), February 14, 2013 -- Aftermarket automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars now offers a solution for the new Porsche Boxster 981. The latest product in the SmartTOP series allows easy one-touch operation from the center console switch. It is no longer necessary to hold down the switch for the entire duration, the top opens or closes fully automatically. This adds convenience and saves time, leading to the car being used with the top-down more often.
The top can also be operated from the original factory key fob remote, allowing owners to open or close the top with one-touch convenience from a distance. A simple key combination on the remote activates the top. “Our customers can now initiate the top opening sequence while approaching the car, get in and start the engine, driving off with the top already down”, says PR Manager Sven Tornow. No separate remote or modification to the existing one is necessary. The windows can be controlled independently as well.
All individual features and functions of the SmartTOP module can be customized and configured to taste. The windows can be set to go up or stay down after opening the top. Configuration of the module can be done in the car using a signature input sequence. Alternatively a computer can be used in conjunction with the standard USB connection present in every one of Mods4cars’ products. The USB port also enables end-users to quickly update the product firmware. Updates and support software for Windows and Mac OS are available online, free of charge.
Thanks to the well thought-out SmartTOP add-on kit, an ongoing top operation can even be programmed to continue while the engine is being started or stopped. The entire module can be temporarily disabled while retaining all user settings. Installation is simple and straightforward, requires only basic knowledge and does not involve cutting or soldering. The kit can easily be removed if necessary.
SmartTOP modules are also available for Porsche 911 Convertibles (all model years).
Mods4cars offers SmartTOP kits for the following brands: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and Volkswagen.
The convenience enhancing kit for Porsche Boxster 981 is now available for 249 Euros + tax.

Further details and information:
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.
