SmartTOP Convertible Top Module by Mods4cars for Mini Convertible and BMW 1 Series Convertible gets design refresh 1/2

Mods4cars now ships the SmartTOP add-on kits for the Mini Convertible and the BMW 1 Series Convertible with the new Mods4cars module enclosure. This custom designed enclosure impresses with its slim, form fitting design and two LEDs for quick and simple installation. Thanks to the smaller size the module can easily be installed in even tighter locations in the car.

“We are happy to announce the switch to the new product enclosure on the SmartTOP modules designed for Mini and BMW 1 Series.” says PR-Manager Sven Tornow. “The sophistication of our products is now also apparent from the outside.” The smart add-on modules with their useful features make day-to-day use of the convertible top more convenient and more fun.

With a SmartTOP module installed, owners can open or close the convertible top at slow speeds of up to 40 km/h (~28 mph). A quick tap is enough to start full automatic operation. It is not necessary any longer to hold down the switch for the entire time. The driver’s hands are back on the wheel quickly.

“Especially Mini owners will appreciate the one-touch feature greatly, since they can now choose the desired outcome when pressing the button.” Sven Tornow continues. A single touch opens the sunroof. A double tap opens the sunroof and the convertible top. A triple tap opens the sunroof, convertible top and windows. “Owners can quickly select what they want and the whole operation is carried out fully automatically: Either just the sunroof or the whole convertible top, and whether the windows should be up or down after the top operation finishes.” Sven Tornow concludes.

Full automatic one-touch operation is also possible from a distance by using the original key fob remote. Not having to hold down any buttons means convenience and saving time. The SmartTOP customer may even get in the car and start driving while the top still operates. No changes are necessary to the key fobs or the receiver system.

SmartTOP modules all come with additional bonus features. A few examples are one-touch operation for the windows from the console switch, automatic mirror folding and unfolding on the BMW 1 Series and options to unlock the doors when turning the ignition off. An extended mode can be activated that allows a top operation to continue even when the engine is being started or stopped. The entire module can also be disabled temporarily while retaining all user configurable settings.
