Las Vegas, NV (USA), Thursday – April 19th, 2012 — The SmartTOP convertible top add-on module ( ) for Porsche Carrera 997 ships with a custom designed plug-and-play wiring adapter effective immediately. This new wiring harness is a professional solution using only OEM parts for best compatibility and fit. It makes installation possible for anyone in the shortest amount of time.

“This new wiring adapter makes installation even easier and totally foolproof, while keeping the existing simple approach”, says PR manager Sven Tornow. Thanks to this new wiring harness, the module itself does not have to be plugged into the top controller any more. Instead it can be conveniently mounted in an area nearby.

The SmartTOP kit allows opening and closing the top while driving at slow speeds or from the factory remote fob, adding convenient one-touch operation to both. The original key fob does not need to be altered or reprogrammed. A new feature in this version of the module allows users to determine if they want all windows up or down after a top open cycle.

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. Visit for more details.
