Las Vegas, Nevada – December 14, 2017
The retrofit SmartTOP roof control by the company Mods4cars is now available for the Mazda MX-5 RF. “The additional comfort module for the Mazda MX-5 is one of our most popular products. We are pleased that we can now also offer a SmartTOP solution for the new Mazda MX-5 RF,” explains PR spokesman Sven Tornow.
The SmartTOP modules are additionally installed into the vehicle in order to make the operation of the retractable hardtop more comfortable. After installation, it is possible for the Mazda driver to open and close the top while driving at a speed of up to 50 km/h via One-Touch. All you need to do is tap the top button. The top movement is then carried out automatically. “This way the driver has both hands back on the steering wheel faster,” explains Sven Tornow.
In addition to this main function, the SmartTOP also offers further clever features: Upon customer request the function “Invert switch logic” has been added. Thanks to it, the operating direction of the top button can be inverted. In addition, the top movement is also possible while reversing. Starting and stopping the engine does not interrupt the current top movement process.
All functions can be programmed according to personal wishes. Among other things, it is possible to adjust, step by step, the speed at which the top movement can be carried out whilst driving. Thanks to a USB port attached to the module, the configuration can be made easily via a PC / Mac. In addition, the USB port makes it possible to upload additional software updates and feature enhancements, which are offered by Mods4cars free of charge.
For easy installation, the SmartTOP comes with a plug-and-play cable set. The specially developed T-cable set has connectors in OEM quality and ensures for a simple connection between vehicle electronics and SmartTOP module. No cables need to be cut, so a residue-free removal is possible at any time.
Since 2001, the company Mods4cars has manufactured their SmartTOP roof top controls. From Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Chevrolet, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Mazda, McLaren, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volkswagen to Volvo all common convertible and Roadster models are supported.

Mods4cars was founded in 2002 from 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.
