I do have the Bipes smart top.
The dealer was very Leary of it and had the same questions for me.
If the smart top bypasses the sensors, they should not effect the top operation. But since the computer told them they needed replacing before it could get accurate reading from top switches, they replaced them.
They could not understand the reasons for a smart top or why anyone would want to drive with the top in operation. Very bad idea in their opinion.
If cylinders get damaged from wind resistance while driving, the replacement cost of the cylinders would be about $2500.
I explained that sometimes your at a red light and want to put the top down and the light turns green, you can continue top operation without holding up traffic.
or operating the top from within the home or office so you can jump in car and go.
They just said they would be careful not to drive too fast or the cylinders could bust and start leaking fluid.
