SmartTOP Add-On Convertible Top Controller for Audi TT Roadster 8S Soon Available
Las Vegas, NV (USA), December 24th, 2015 — Aftermarket automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars, known for the Add-On Convertible Top Controllers called SmartTOP, announced an availability timeframe of January 2016 for the new Audi TT Roadster 8S SmartTOP kit. “We are happy to bring our convenience adding product to the new Audi TT Roadster very soon. Since 2007 Mods4cars has had a SmartTOP kit available for the Audi TT Roadster 8J.” explains PR-Manager Sven Tornow.
The SmartTOP module allows convenient one-touch operation of the top while driving from the console switch. All that is needed it a quick tap to start a full automatic top operation. It is no longer necessary to hold down the switch. Drivers get to return both hands to the steering wheel immediately.
Aside from one-touch operation the top can also be controlled from the original key fob remote. Entering a key combination on it is enough to open or close the top from afar. No modification is necessary to the original key or receiver system.
The new SmartTOP module for Audi TT Roadster 8S also adds a host of bonus features: The windows can be controlled separately from the top by remote. The wind deflector can be programmed to automatically rise up after opening the top. The operation direction of the console switch can be inverted, if desired. An extended mode can be activated, which allows starting or stopping the engine while an ongoing top operation still continues. The entire module can be temporarily disabled while retaining all other settings for when it is re-enabled later.
All features can be configured to individual taste. A USB port allows configuration of the module via PC or Mac. “Installation of the product is very easy and straightforward as well. A custom designed plug-and-play wiring harness makes connecting the module to the vehicle electronics a matter of seconds.” Sven Tornow continues.
Mods4cars offers SmartTOP Convertible Top Controllers for many popular car brands: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and Volkswagen. Also for the previous Audi TT Roadster 8J a SmartTOP kit is available.
The convenience add-on for the new Audi TT Roadster 8S will be available for 249 Euros + tax.

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.
