Las Vegas, NV (USA), June 18th, 2012 — Just in time for this year’s top-down season the new SmartTOP controller module by Mods4cars ( ) for the BMW Z4 Roadster E85 will be available this June, adding convenience to the operation of the electric top mechanism: The module allows use of the factory remote fob to raise or lower the top without a need to reprogram key fobs or vehicle electronics.

Additionally, the top can be operated with a single touch of a button, while the car is in motion at speeds of up to 40 km/h (~28mph). It is not necessary any more to stop and pull over, the car will be used more frequently with the top down.

“We are pleased to announce the availability of this latest product to all BMW Z4 Roadster owners who stayed loyal to their E85 model through the years.” says PR manager Sven Tornow. The module also adds a couple of bonus features like individual, independent remote control of the windows or a quick way to disable the entire module while retaining all user configuration settings.

Thanks to the standard USB port found on all SmartTOP modules, this module too profits from the outfit’s free firmware update program and module configuration software. A custom designed wire-in harness as well as a USB cord are part of the kit. No wires need to be cut during installation, the kit is easily installed or removed by anyone with minimal understanding of electrical wiring.

In June of this year this new SmartTOP module ( ) will complete the series for Z4 Roadsters. Mods4cars now offers one kit for each of the car’s chassis versions E85 and E89. The kit for E85 can be pre-ordered effective immediately for 209 Euros + tax.

About Mods4cars:
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.
