The SmartTOP convertible top add-on module made by Mods4cars for the Mercedes-Benz SLK R172 allows owners to open or close the top while driving and with just a single touch of the button. One-touch operation from the original factory remote key fob is also possible. A highlight is the ability to raise the rear windows while the top is down. This new functionality has been integrated into the module along with a user programmable “chirp” feature.

Las Vegas, NV (USA), August 12th, 2013 -- Thanks to the aftermarket SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller offered by automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars, Mercedes-Benz SLK R172 owners can now open and close the top while driving at slow speeds or control the top from afar via the original factory key remote. Both functions gain convenient one-touch operation, making the need to hold down any switch or button a thing of the past. Mods4cars continuously works on improving their existing products, always taking customer requests into account.

In April of this year Mods4cars published an update which now allows new and existing customers of the SmartTOP product to lower the top and raise the rear windows. By factory these windows are locked in the down position as long as the convertible top is down. The SmartTOP allows owners to bring them up with simple one-touch convenience.

This new feature was fully integrated into the SmartTOP firmware. Owners can choose if they want all 4 windows to come up automatically after opening the top from the console switch or the remote. Of course it is possible to retain the default setting and only control the front windows.

Additionally a new chirp feature was integrated into the module which can be programmed to either emit a brief sound on locking, unlocking or both. “This gives our customers an audible feedback that the remote command was actually received.” explains PR-Manager Sven Tornow. “It is particularly useful in bright daylight when you can’t see the flashers or hear the clicking noise. You can simply start walking away from the car and be sure it locked correctly.” Sven Tornow continues.

As a courtesy service Mods4cars always makes such improvements accessible to all customers, even existing ones. Every module comes equipped with a standard USB port to allow customer to quickly configure or update their product at any time. “Our customers have the distinct advantage to always get the latest and best software version for their product, completely free of charge. Firmware updates are provided by Mods4cars online for free.” Sven Tornow concludes. A custom designed plug-and-play wiring adapter is also part of the kit. It guarantees a quick and simple installation without the need to handle any wires or specialized knowledge.

The SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller for Mercedes-Benz SLK R172 is available for 249 Euros + tax. There are versions available for the previous generation SLK R171 and SLK R170 as well.

SmartTOP kits are also available for the following brands: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and Volkswagen.

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.
