I imagine you may be referring to the unit on eBay--

I was doing some poking around myself, and apparently there is an electric interface box that is also needed to successfully install the hard top. I imagine it is an interface with the Cabrio's internal sensors that tell it the top is truly closed, as it is an aftermarket part, rather than "plug and play"

I always wondered about that. I figured there had to be some sort of aftermarket electrical interface to the top hydraulic controller that allowed one to latch/unlatch the rear bow latch to suck the back part of the hard top down against the closed tonneau much like the SL hardtop does from the factory.
