someone please confirm this?

and for those who already have the smartTop on board, could you elaborate the advantage?

A million thanks!
Hi gentlewen, i cant comment about the 2013 car being able to operate its top at 20mph without the module, but what i can say is that i would not be without my SmartTop module fitted. Ive had mine installed for a few months and i find the great bit the ability to raise and lower the roof via remote control.

The opening and closing on the move is something i have used, but not so often. the other features it brings are also welcome.

I had the old Z4 for 8 years with the simple auto top mod, but that would only operate from the button in the cabin as a one touch process.

smartTop kicks its ass.
