I would like to close out my supply of parts for the vario roof controller that I designed and build. There has not been a lot of business lately, which is not surprising, as the R170 has been around for a while, so most owners who wanted one probably already have gotten one. But if there is sufficient interest, I would run a closeout build and sell directly at a reduced price of $169 plus shipping ($5 to US locations).

If you're not familiar with my controller, it uses the factory remote to open or close the top, allows one-touch operation from the center console, and allows top operation up to 25 mph. This unit is for the R170 only. More including installation instructions at BVRC

Send me a pm if interested, or use the email link on my web site. I'll respond privately and let you know if there is sufficient interest. If I can close off the group by Jan 2, expect delivery by Jan 22. If not, delivery may stretch into Feb.

If everyone follows through, I have enough for a build. I will email or pm back with payment instructions early next week. It will take about two weeks for the build and shipping.

I can ship to Australia. Send me your address and I'll get a shipping price. I will only put the actual price paid on custom forms, not a lower one.

Is there a way to add the lock/unlock "chirp" function to this unit?

Describe it, please. My car, and I thought all US cars unless programmed otherwise by the dealer, sounds the horn when locking/unlocking with the remote.

I want the car alarm to sound briefly on locking with the remote. Currently my car does not have this function. Please check PM.

The chirping is a dealer programmed option commonly known as the "Netherlands option"
I had my dealer program it soon after delivery. The car chirps to confirm locking and unlocking by the remote,
It will be interesting to see what happens when the RVRC is installed - I plan on installing it next weekend.
