Las Vegas, NV (PressExposure) October 21, 2011 -- Effective immediately BMW 3 series convertible and Z4 roadster owners get to enjoy the conveniences offered by the SmartTOP series while keeping installation efforts to a minimum, thanks to the new, custom designed plug-and-play wiring adapter which now comes standard with each module. The kit, once installed, allows convenient top operation from the original factory key fob without the need to modify or reprogram the key.
Additionally the convertible top can be used at slow speeds of up to 40km/h (~28 mph) with the added convenience of simple one-touch operation. The distinct disadvantage of having to pull over and hold down the switch is a thing of the past. As a result the top is used more often, even on shorter trips.
"We are very happy with the solution we have found for such a simple product installation" says PR manager Sven Tornow and adds that the custom designed plug-and-play wiring adapter makes installing the kit a very simple and straightforward task. All connections between the car electronics and SmartTOP module are original manufacturer style plugs and sockets, guaranteeing a 100% fit and making it absolutely foolproof. "The usual concept of having to deal with individual wires or even cutting and splicing is completely absent." Mr. Tornow concludes.
Each module comes with a hand full of extra features, all of which can be individually enabled, disabled and configured: Windows can be controlled separately by remote or one-touch closed using the all-windows switch in the driver's side door. Doors can be set to automatically unlock upon turning off the engine and the trunk access feature can be activated with no need to hold down the button on the remote. Even the motorized rear view mirrors (if option present) can be folded in or out from the remote. Top operation can be programmed to continue while the engine is started or the ignition turned off and the entire module can be disabled if needed.
