Mods4cars now offers a RemoteKEY convenience module for BMW 1 series (E81, E82, E87) and 3 series (E90, E91, E92). This module comes as an add-on kit which provides added features and functions to BMW owners.
The product allows opening or closing of all windows via one-touch operation from the original key fob remote. Additionally the RemoteKEY can be used to remotely control the sunroof. The factory keys do not need to be altered or reprogrammed.
The product also offers a couple of extended functions that make everyday life easier: BMW-optional electric side mirrors can be folded and unfolded by remote in addition to the regular pushbutton. Doors can be set to unlock automatically when the ignition is turned off, making the double-pull on the door handle obsolete. A supplied buzzer can be mounted under the hood for a beep signal when locking or unlocking the car.
Added security is provided by the option to connect the red LED under the rearview mirror in cars with no factory alarm system. The RemoteKEY controls this LED in exactly the same fashion as the factory alarm system would, thereby giving the appearance as if the alarm were present.
On cars with the keyless “comfort access” option and active sequential door unlocking it is possible to use a touch sequence to unlock all doors on demand without the need to use the key remote.
The entire module can also be temporarily deactivated while still retaining all user configuration settings. All RemoteKEY modules are equipped with a standard USB port for easy PC or Mac configuration or firmware updates. Support software and updates are available free of charge online.
Manufacturer of the RemoteKEY product is USA based Mods4cars. The outfit has been designing and developing add-on convenience and convertible top controllers for all major car brands since 2002. “The basic idea behind our products is making certain operations and processes in the car easier and more convenient” says PR Manager Sven Tornow. “Our RemoteKEY products bring useful added convenience to owners of non-convertible cars. They also provide means for our customers to give their car a custom touch.” he concludes.
Add-on convertible top and convenience module kits made by Mods4cars are available for: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volkswagen and Volvo.
The kit with all accessories for BMW 1 and 3 series is available for 199 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.
