Spider - convertible roof mechanism

Hi. I commute to work. Just got a spider. I am lucky enough to start my journey on a scenic secondary road that hugs around a coast line with beautiful views of the ocean and the smell of sea breeze. The pleasure ends there when I have to cross a harbour tunnel for a long stretch of 20mins. Often, I would be stuck behind a bus blowing black fumes on me. I am wondering if anyone has experience with using a "bypass" relay so that the convertible top can come on while the car is moving slowly? More importantly, would like to know if it damages the convertible mechanism which is extremely dear to fix. Will be glad to hear your experiences.

By the way, I found these by-pass relays on the internet. Has anyone had experience? Appreciate your views.

Search for intellitop. They have a module, about $500 that will allow you to raise the top while driving at speeds up to 35mph.
