Las Vegas, NV (USA), April 22nd, 2013 -- The SmartTOP convertible top add-on convenience module offered by Mods4cars enriches operation of the top with a host of useful features. The top can be opened or closed while driving at slow speeds and top operation is possible from afar by using just the factory remote fob. Adding one-touch to the mix ensures that no more holding of any switch or button is necessary. The module also comes with a few useful bonus features.

Mods4cars continuously works on improving existing products and starts this year’s convertible season with a feature highlight. It is now possible to control the rear windows on the Mercedes Benz SLK R172. By default the rear windows stay permanently down while the convertible top is open. Now it is possible to raise all four windows, with one-touch convenience, when the top is fully down.

“At the request of our customers we now offer full control of the rear windows through our module.” says PR-Manager Sven Tornow. “This feature was requested mainly to get better wind protection while driving at higher speeds. It also improves on the overall look of the SLK with top down: Raising all windows gives the R172 a more refined and complete look.” he continues.

It is worth mentioning that not just new customers get to enjoy this feature. Existing owners of the SmartTOP add-on kit ( http://www.mods4cars.com ) can profit from this update as well. All SmartTOP modules come with a standard USB connector for PC based configuration and updates available online on Mods4cars’ home page.

“Of course this update is also free for our existing customers.” Sven Tornow reiterates the company’s policy on updates: “Once you buy one of our SmartTOP modules, you will always be able to update when we bring new features and functions. Free of charge.”

Installation of the kit is very straight forward. Mods4cars ships the SmartTOP module with a custom designed plug-in-between wiring harness. This wiring adapter uses all OEM plugs and connectors to ensure a perfect and secure fit. It is not necessary to handle, cut or splice any wires. No permanent changes are made to the car.

Kits are available for brands like Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and VW. Mods4cars offers the SmartTOP module for almost all modern convertibles and roadsters on the road today; including the previous SLK models R170 and R171.

The SmartTOP convertible top convenience controller is available for 249 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.
