The SmartTOP aftermarket Convertible Top Controller made by Mods4cars for Audi R8 Spyder will be available in November of 2013.

Installation is simplified by a custom designed plug and play wiring harness.
Las Vegas, NV (USA), October 09, 2013 — This upcoming November of 2013 the new SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller made by aftermarket automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars for the Audi R8 Spyder will be available for purchase. It is an add-on module which gives owners more features and convenience when it comes to using the top.
The SmartTOP controller allows use of the factory remote key fob to lower and raise the top fully automatically. Owners can simply open the convertible top while still approaching their car. All that is required is a quick button combination on the key remote.
Additionally the add-on kit enables one-touch operation for the center console switch. This means that the console switch does not have to be held down any longer for the duration of the operation. Driving with the top down becomes more accessible and will be enjoyed more often.
User configurable bonus features of the module include an extended mode which will not interrupt an ongoing top operation when the engine is started or stopped as well as a master switch that allows the entire module to be disabled while retaining all user settings. The module can be configured in the car or via the standard USB port in conjunction with support software available for Windows and Mac. The USB port also allows users to update the product firmware. New firmware versions are provided by Mods4cars online and are free of charge.
The SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller for Audi R8 Spyder comes in the new, exclusive Mods4cars module enclosure. This custom designed enclosure was created to give the product a small and sleek footprint as well as to protect the electronics from moisture. Thanks to the new design, users can easily find a convenient spot to install the module in. Two integrated LEDs show current status and mode of operation.
A plug-in-between wiring harness is part of the kit. It makes installing the product very easy.
“We are very happy to announce availability of our SmartTOP module for the Audi R8 Spyder along with a plug-and-play wiring harness.” says PR-Manager Sven Tornow. “The module is connected to the vehicle electronics by simply plugging a few connectors in. No wires need to be cut or spliced; all connectors are original OEM parts and guarantee a perfect fit.” Sven Tornow continues. It is possible to restore full factory condition quickly and easily without leaving any damage.
The add-on kit for the Audi R8 Spyder is available for 249 Euros + tax. SmartTOP modules are also available for other Audi models such as the A3, A4, A5 and TT Roadster.
Mods4cars offers SmartTOP modules for: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and VW.
A product demonstration can be seen here:
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.
