The SmartTOP additional cabriolet top control for the BMW Z4 Roadster and Mini Cabrio allows One-Touch top operation while driving, as well as the convertibles top to be operated via the vehicles key.
Las Vegas, Nevada – October 17, 2019
The retrofitted SmartTOP convertible top module for the BMW Z4 Roadster (E85) and the Mini Cabrio (R52) makes it possible to open and close the convertibles top while driving at a speed of up to 40 km/h. Thanks to the One-Touch function, a brief tap on the interior button is all it takes. In addition, the convertibles top can be operated from a distance using the existing vehicles key.
“With the sophisticated functions of our SmartTOP comfort modules, we want to make the everyday cabriolet and driving experience as easy as possible,” explains PR spokesman Sven Tornow. “That’s why we regularly add new functions to our modules and are happy to respond to customer requests,” Sven Tornow continues.
The SmartTOP convertible module for the BMW Z4 Roadster and the Mini Cabrio have now received the following new functions: It is now possible to have the indicator blink three times automatically by briefly pressing the indicator lever once. “Coming/Leaving Home” mode let the low beam or fog light be activated for a short time after opening or closing the vehicles door.
Additionally, the hazard warning lights can be activated if the top is operated via the remote control. Valet mode prevents the convertibles top from being operated via the interior button and remote control. This allows the top to be completely locked when a third party is using the vehicle.
All functions can be programmed according to your personal requirements. A setup menu enables the configuration of the retrofitted convertible top module via the existing display in the vehicle. The individual functions and their options are displayed in plain text.
The SmartTOP convertible modules are also equipped with a USB port, which allows programming and installation of software updates via the home PC/Mac. Existing customers can also benefit from these new functions, as the manufacturer Mods4cars makes these updates available to all customers, free of charge over the Internet.
The SmartTOP comfort module for Z4 Roadster and Mini Cabrio is available from 249,00 Euro + tax.
SmartTOP convertible top modules are available for the following vehicle brands: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Chevrolet, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Maserati, Mazda, McLaren, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volkswagen and Volvo.

Mods4cars was founded in 2002 from 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.
