Effective immediately, the SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller offered by aftermarket automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars is available for the Audi R8 Spyder. It adds convenient and intelligent functionality to the car. On one hand the convertible top can be opened using quick and automatic one-touch operation and while the car is in motion. It is no longer necessary to hold down the switch for the duration of the operation. SmartTOP owners just tap the switch briefly to activate the top.
On the other hand the module allows top operation from the original key fob remote. “Opening and closing the top from a distance by using the original key fob is a very popular feature.” says PR-Manager Sven Tornow. “Our customers can start opening the top while they are still approaching the car.” Sven Tornow continues. “This can come in handy to air out the car quickly in situations where direct sunlight has heated the inside up. Also it is possible to quickly close the top from afar at the first sign of rain.” All that is necessary is the original key fob remote. No physical or programming or changes are done to the original remote fobs.
Each module comes with a few bonus features such as an extended mode that allows top operation to continue while the engine is turned on or off. This allows drivers to start the top operation from the remote, get in and start driving, while the top finishes its cycle automatically.
Just like the well thought out functionality, installation has been designed to be as easy as possible. A custom designed plug-and-play wiring harness is part of the kit. This harness uses original OEM plugs to guarantee perfect and secure fit while simply connecting the module with the car electronics.
The SmartTOP for Audi R8 Spyder comes in the new, exclusive Mods4cars product enclosure. This custom fitted enclosure was designed with ergonomics and sleek looks in mind. It’s very slim and easily fits in any hollow space in the car. Two LEDs aid during the installation process by showing useful status information.
Configuration of the module is simplified by the standard USB port present on each module. It allows users to use a Windows or Mac support software to adjust personal settings and update the product firmware. “We continuously work on bringing new and improved functionality to existing modules. Updates are available online and free of charge, so even our existing customers always profit from updates.” says Sven Tornow. Programming can also be done in the car, without the need to remove the module.
The add-on kit for the Audi R8 Spyder is available for 249 Euros + tax. For other Audi models such as the convertible editions of A3, A4, A5 and TT roadster SmartTOP kits are available as well. All major brands are supported: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volkswagen and Volvo.
