Additionally it is now possible to control the top from the original factory key remote with just a quick key press sequence after which the top will open or close fully automatically. Also here there is no need to hold down any button during operation. “Our customers can now start a top operation from the remote, get in the car and start the engine, while the top continues to operate”, says PR-Manager Sven Tornow. “This is not only a real convenience but also a time saver” he concludes. With the SmartTOP module it is even possible to control just the windows by remote, independently from the top.
The kit offers a couple of bonus features, all of which can be individually selected by the user via a simple setup procedure. The wind deflector operation can be enhanced with one-touch operation as well as full-auto operation when using the remote to open the top. A real convenience for all Porsche Carrera owners who enjoy driving with the wind deflector up. The top can optionally be operated with the keyless touch door handle (if present) without the need to use the remote fob. All windows can be operated simultaneously with the windows switches, removing the need to use the window selector rocker and an extended mode can be activated where either starting or stopping the engine does not interrupt the top operations. The entire module can be deactivated temporarily as well while retaining all user settings.
The module comes equipped with a standard USB port and cable as part of the kit. This allows quick and easy configuration of user settings as well as firmware updates, which are provided by Mods4cars online ( http://www.mods4cars.com ) and free of charge. The support software is available for Windows and Mac OS.
Installation of the kit is simple and easy. A custom designed plug-and-play wiring adapter using original OEM connectors is included. This adapter simply connects the module to the vehicle electronics by replacing one single connector. No cutting wires or soldering is necessary and no permanent changes are made. The kit can be removed at any time without leaving any traces.
Mods4cars offers their SmartTOP solution for the following brands: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and Volkswagen.
The top controller enhancement kit for Porsche Carrera 991 Convertible is available for 299 Euros + tax.

Further details and information:
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.
