RemoteKEY comfort module for BMW 1 Series / 3 Series in a new casing

The RemoteKEY comfort module for BMW models 1 and 3 Series will now be delivered in a new casing. The retrofit module from the company Mods4cars provides a higher operating comfort with smart functions. Among other features, windows and sunroof can be operated via the original remote control.

The company Mods4cars has completely reworked the casing of their soft top and comfort modules. The RemoteKEY comfort module for BMW 1 Series and 3 Series models has also received the new design. The RemoteKEY is a retrofit control which provides more comfort and numerous additional functions.

Among other things, the RemoteKEY makes it possible to open and close windows and the sunroof via the existing original remote control. If desired, the chirp function can be activated to sound a short horn signal when the central locking has been actuated. Motorized mirrors can be folded in and out via remote control.

When switching off the ignition, the doors are unlocked, eliminating the need to pull on the door handle twice. The module can be connected to the red LED in the rearview mirror and thereby simulate an alarm system. The comfort control can be completely deactivated as needed.

All functions are programmable according to personal wishes. For this purpose, an USB port is attached to the RemoteKEY. It’s possible to configure the module on the PC / Mac and to install software updates that Mods4cars provides, free of charge.

“The housing, which was developed exclusively for Mods4cars, also provides assistance in installing the retrofit comfort control,” explains PR spokesman Sven Tornow. Two LEDs attached to the module help with the installation. Thanks to the narrower shape of the RemoteKEY installation in the vehicle is made easier.

Since 2002, the company, Mods4cars, has manufactured their retrofit convertible roof top and comfort modules. They are available for the following vehicle brands: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Chevrolet, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Mazda, McLaren, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volkswagen and Volvo.

The RemoteKEY comfort module for BMW 1 and 3 Series is available for 209,00 Euro + tax.

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.

Another standard feature on all SmartTOP products is the integrated USB port for quick and simple configuration and firmware updates. Updates are free of charge and support software is available for Windows and Mac. The SmartTOP kit comes with a custom designed plug-and-play wiring adapter that allows simple installation by connecting the module to the vehicle electronics.

The add-on module for Mini Convertible and BMW 1 Series starts at 209 Euros + tax. The following brands are supported by SmartTOP: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volkswagen and Volvo.


SmartTOP for BMW 1 series and Mini now comes with a FULL PLUG AND PLAY HARNESS!

The new wiring adapter makes installation easier than ever. No more cutting and splicing of single wires is necessary. The module allows use of the top while driving at slow speeds as well as remote top operation from the original key fob, with a single touch of the button. No more pulling over and holding down the top switch.
