Las Vegas, NV (USA), February 5th, 2016 -- Aftermarket automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars has improved the design of the wiring adapter which ships with the SmartTOP kit for the Audi A5 Convertible and R8 Spyder. The SmartTOP Convertible Top module now comes with a custom designed dual plug-in-between wiring adapter which uses OEM connectors and thereby makes the whole installation process a mere act of connecting plugs.
“We are pleased to be able to offer our SmartTOP for the Audi A5 Convertible and the R8 Spyder now with a further improved wiring adapter.“ says PR-Manager Sven Tornow. “As a result all that needs to be done to install our kit is to connect OEM plugs which lock and latch perfectly. Wire taps are not being used any longer.” Sven Tornow continues. “This allows for a quick and straightforward installation of our kit by pretty much anyone in order to enjoy the benefits of the SmartTOP product.”
Once the SmartTOP module is installed it is possible to open and close the top at slow speeds of up to 60 km/h (~38mph) and with one-touch convenience. It is no longer necessary to hold down the top switch for the duration of the operation. Hands can return to the steering wheel immediately.
Additionally it is possible to control the top from the original key fob remote. “On hot days our customers can already open their top while still approaching their car.” explains Sven Tornow. In the opposite case the top can be quickly closed from afar at the first sign of impending rainfall. No changes are necessary to the existing key remotes or receiver system.
The following bonus features are included as well: The windows can be lowered and raised separately by remote. The console top switch direction can be reversed, if desired. On the A5 the side blinkers can be activated during remote top operation. When locking the car, a short horn signal (chirp) can be activated (A5) and an extended mode can be activated which allows starting or stopping the engine while a top operation continues. The entire module can be deactivated temporarily while retaining all user settings for when it is reactivated later on.
All functions can be programmed to individual needs. Configuration of the module is possible in the car or with a Mac or PC. SmartTOP modules are equipped with a standard USB port which allows connecting it to a computer for quick and easy configuration and firmware updates. Support software and firmware updates are available online and free of charge.
The SmartTOP convenience add-on kit for Audi A5 Convertible and R8 Spyder is available for 269 Euros + tax. Kits are also available for Audi A3, A4 and TT. Mods4cars has SmartTOP modules available for most popular brands such as: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and VW.

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.
