  • Check These 10 Tips About Caring For Wood Furniture

    1. To clean the finish on your wood furniture just use warm water and mild dish soap. Cleaning furniture with water won't hurt it -- just be careful not to soak it. Use an old toothbrush for hard-to-get areas. Wipe the dirt off the surface with soft cloths or paper towels until they come up fairly clean. Then dry off any residual moisture with a soft cloth.

    2. After a good cleaning, the best way to protect the finish is to use a good-quality soft paste wax. Apply a thin coat as directed on the label. Wait five minutes and buff lightly with a soft (shoe) brush or cloth. Wait another 30 to 60 minutes and buff/brush again with a bit more vigor. You'll see a beautiful shine return to the finish that will last for many months.

    3. Keep your furniture out of the sun. The temperature of the summer sun coming through a window can go above 140 degrees. It will cook fine finishes, fading and destroying them over time, and dry out and shrink the wood, which will cause cracks.

    4. Don't place wood furniture near heating units or vents. Dry heat will cause the wood to dry and shrink, leaving cracks. Use a humidifier in the drier months to bring the moisture up to the 40 to 45 percent level.

    5. For a quick-fix touch up, use the appropriate color shoe polish on scratches and chips, especially to make them less visible on the feet of furniture. Carefully using a matching-color felt-tip marker first will hide it even better.

    6. When polishing metal hardware, take it off the furniture first. Take your time and make a note to remember what piece goes back where. Use a quality metal polish to get it shining again. Once it's buffed, put it back on, being careful not to scratch the wood surfaces. I recommend that you don't try to do this all at one time. It can be a lot of work, so take a few days, doing a few pieces at a time, instead of getting tired and frustrated with trying to do too much.

    7. Wood isn't hungry! You cannot feed furniture. No matter what the advertising says, wood cannot be fed or nourished or enriched with polishes or oils. Once it has a protective finish over it for beauty and protection, the wood is sealed. Polishes and oils will not penetrate it.

    8. There are several ways to remove the white hazy ring or spot that the hot coffee mug or hot pizza box made on your table. The least invasive way is to rub it with a mild abrasive, such as non-gel toothpaste mixed with baking soda or cooking oil mixed with ashes. You can rub it in a small spot with your finger or use a soft cloth on larger areas.
    Another method that has excellent results is to place a soft cloth or towel over the spot and iron it carefully for 10 to 20 seconds at a time with the iron at a medium setting. You can turn the iron up a bit if needed. Always keep the iron moving and check your progress frequently.

    9. When shopping for new or antique furniture, look at the back, inside and undersides of furniture and drawers. Many times it tells you more about quality than looking at the "show" side. The so-called "secondary" woods can speak volumes about the age of the item and the quality of construction.

    10. Restoring or refinishing an older or antique piece of furniture to its original glory might seem like a good idea, and many times it is. But it's important to get advice from someone who is knowledgeable about the item you are considering. You may find that your piece is valuable and just needs a proper cleaning.

    Any more extensive work should be left to a professional.
  • Check These Tips - How To Take Care Of Your Used Car

    After considering the time and money spent shopping for, buying, and maintaining a used car, it should come as no surprise that, for many of us, buying a used car could be the second-biggest purchase that we’ll ever make. 

    Clearly, transportation is important, whether for family or for work, but transportation doesn’t take care of itself. Buying a used car is the start of a hopefully long relationship, as long as you look after your purchase.

    1. Select a Vehicle Best Fit for You

    One small part of that long relationship has to do with the brand. Typically, better brands are more expensive because they are made from better parts. As the saying goes, “You get what you pay for,” that is, if you buy cheap up front, you can expect to pay for it later. In the case of used cars, you can expect to spend far more money maintaining and repairing a cheap car than if you had bought a slightly-more-expensive car to begin with.

    Another small part of that long relationship starts with buying a properly equipped used car. For example, you don’t need to buy a half-tonne pickup for family transportation, but you could. The family might not be entirely comfortable, but the truck could handle it. On the other hand, you wouldn’t buy a sedan or an MPV to haul lumber, as it simply isn’t designed for that kind of abuse. When buying a used car, consider how you expect to use it, and purchase something designed for the task at hand.

    2. Get Your Car Checked

    By far, the biggest part of having a long relationship with your new used car is maintenance. The first thing you should do with your used car purchase, preferably within the first week, is to bring it to your trusted automobile technician. Paying him for an hour of his time to take a good look at your used car can help to expose problems that you may not even be aware of yet. If it hasn’t already been done, change the engine oil and the oil filter, as well as the transmission and differential fluids, depending on mileage and condition. One might do well with a new pair of wiper blades, engine air filter, and topping off critical fluids. Inspection of tires, brakes, suspension, steering should be tops on your list of things to check.

    Additionally, if your used car came with a limited guarantee on certain parts, you’d need to catch these problems within a short period of time. For example, a blown headlight bulb should certainly be replaced, for safety and local law, but it may not be covered. On the other hand, a malfunctioning transmission might be covered. You’ll have to check the agreement that you signed to see if any of these provisions may apply.

    3. Schedule Regular Maintenance

    Regular and proper maintenance is key to the longevity of your used car and should not be overlooked. For example, most modern automobile manufacturers suggest engine oil and filter changes every 7,500 km for regular driving habits. Some people have gotten into the habit of changing the engine oil “whenever I get around to it” or “when the engine oil turns black,” but they don’t realize the damage they’ve done to the engine. Properly maintained, engines made in the last fifteen years should not be burning oil, and some even top half-a-million kilometers before needing any major engine work.
    Check These Tips - How To Take Care Of Your Used Car
    “But,” you may say, “it costs money to change the oil every 7,500 km.” True, maintenance isn’t free, but maintenance is always cheaper than repair. Even if you opt for more-expensive synthetic oil, it will be cheaper than having an engine rebuilt. Toyota Motor Company, for example, builds their engines for a 400,000 km lifespan. If you change the oil “whenever you feel like it,” you will most likely be burning oil by the 100,000 km mark, and the engine will be ruined by the 200,000 km mark. You’ll spend a lot of money on a new or rebuilt engine. On the other hand, sticking to a regular 7,500 km engine oil and oil filter replacement interval, you would spend about half as much on maintenance and get twice as many miles out of your engine.

    4. Be Observant

    While regular maintenance should help prevent problems that you can’t readily see, being an observant driver can help you to prevent minor problems from turning into major ones. Pay attention to abnormal noises and vibrations and talk to your trusted technician about them. For example, if your belts squeak in the rain, perhaps they need to be adjusted to prevent them from slipping. 

    However, if you don’t get them adjusted, they’ll wear out faster and you’ll have to replace them, which would be more expensive. If you wait too long, you could end up stranded when the belts finally fail.

    Another example might be looseness in the steering gear, which may present itself as vehicle wandering or clunkiness. The repair could be as simple as replacing loose tie-rod end and a front-end alignment, but failure to address this in time can result in expensive repairs. Tires may wear out prematurely, or the tie-rod could separate, resulting in an accident.

    It may be true that nothing lasts forever. However, with proper care, even used cars can last for a long time without extensive repairs. It does require a little planning, which you can make with the help of your trusted technician and the maintenance manual from the manufacturer, but the investment is worthwhile.

  • Check These Interesting Facts About BMW That You Did Not Know

    BMW is a German automobile, motorcycle and engine manufacturing company founded in 1916. 

    The great German car manufacturer is one of the most respected brands in car making history and one of the best-selling luxury automakers in the world. BMW is headquartered in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. Here are some interesting facts about the world’s best sports and luxury cars:

    1. BMW, which stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke, started out by making aircraft engines.

    BMW came into existence during World War I because Germany were short on planes and plane parts. After World War I, German companies were banned from producing warplanes and warplane engines by terms of Treaty of Versailles. Then company shifted to motorcycle production followed by automobiles in 1928.

    2. The Dixi was the first car made by BMW.

    Looking to move into automobile manufacturing, BMW bought the Automobilwerk Eisenach in 1928 and, with it, the rights to build the Dixi car. At first, the cars were badged as BMW Dixi but the Dixi name was dropped in 1929 when the DA-1 was replaced by a slightly updated version, the BMW 3/15 DA-2. Thus BMW’s first car was the Dixi. 
    Check These Interesting Facts About BMW That You Did Not Know
    It went on sale over 80 years ago in 1929.

    3. The BMW headquarters are designed like the BMW Engine.

    BMW headquarter design is similar to that of a four-cylinder engine. It represents a four-cylinder heritage of BMW. Four-cycle engines made just about every fuel-efficient car in history even possible. That same technology went directly into the engine that legendary fighter pilot the Red Baron called the greatest engine in the war. They Raced in Formula 1, and won the championship with a 20-year-old motor design.

    4. BMW built their own Lamborghini.

    The First BMW “M” car, the legendary M1 was supposed to be a Lamborghini. BMW and Lambo agreed in the 1970s to jointly build a race car. The Germans were supposed to provide the engine and some suspension bits, and the Italians were down for the rest. For financial reasons, and at the last minute, Lamborghini pulled out in one of the biggest moments in corporate history. BMW then picked up its clothes, went back to their factory, and built this beast.

    5. There was time when BMW almost became Mercedes in the late fifties.

    In 1959 BMW was near bankruptcy due to factors of Cold War. Mercedes’ parent company Daimler-Benz mounted a hostile takeover attempt. Collectively, BMW mounted a counter attack, enlisting even the lowest mechanics in the organization’s help in buying back shares. They eventually found the help of a major private investor, whose family still owns a chunk of the company today. This battle, of course, caused a major rivalry between the two brands that lasts to this day.

    6. BMW logo isn’t derived from the spinning propeller but it’s made up of national colours of Bavaria: blue and white.

    Everyone thinks that the iconic logo of BMW is from the symbol of spinning propeller. You should understand this BMW logo actually comes from the flag of Bavarian. It consists of blue and white colours.

    7. The front signature Grille on a BMW is known as kidney grille.

    When you think about BMW, you think about their distinctive grille. Most of their cars have one, and it’s the easiest way to spot a BMW from a mile away. It’s maybe even more distinctive than their blue and white circular logo. The grille, which is known as the kidney grille, has been around for a lot longer than you might think. The first kidney grille debuted in 1933 on a BMW 303.

    8. BMW’s first electric car came into existence in 1972.

    Electric cars aren’t as modern and innovative as you might think. But they certainly were when BMW made one in 1972. It didn’t hit the commercial market though, and it’s not too difficult to see why. Although it moved at a decent speed, the battery wasn’t up to scratch. The performance levels were about half of what BMW would have been usually producing at that time.
    But the big problem came because the battery only lasted for roughly 20 minutes before cutting out. It proves that BMW has always been willing to innovate though.

    9. BMW built world’s fastest motorcycle in 1937.

    It could achieve speed of 278 km/hr. It had a supercharged engine. The motorcycle was a death trap and you had to wear that weird helmet. This awesome contraption was aerodynamically slick, supercharged, and in 1937 it was capable of hitting 173.7 mph. BMW is the only current motorcycle manufacturer to reject the use of telescopic forks on its motorbikes. Additionally, 82,000 motorcycles were produced by the company in 2009.

    10. In the US, BMW cars are referred to as “bimmers” while BMW motorcycles are referred to as “beemers”.

    11. BMW Also Makes Minis and Rolls Royces.

    The world of car manufacturing is pretty difficult to keep track of. It’s hard to know which manufacturer makes which car. BMW make both Mini Coopers and Rolls Royces. That means two Britain’s most famous car brands are made by a German company.

    12. BMW also design train and aeroplane interiors.

    The only problem with the interior they set up for Singapore Airlines is that you’ll never want to deplane. Also, San Francisco’s BART system is set to replace some of their trains with new BMW designed models.

    13. BMW also pioneered bike racing for lunatics.

    The concept of leaning out of a sidecar to improve cornering ability during a race dates almost as far back as the concept of sidecars themselves, but that doesn’t mean you’re any less crazy for doing so. Miraculously this sport continues to this day.

    14. In 2009, BMW produced approximately 1.4 million vehicles.

    BMW has an estimated 106,000 employees worldwide. BMW made approximately $4,279,000,000 in income in 2008. In the UK, BMW employs approximately 8000 people. BMW’s South Carolina factory produces around 1,000 vehicles a day.

    15. BMW slogan.

    One of the most popular and recognizable one “The ultimate driving machine” is a slogan used by BMW for more than 35 years.

    16. BMW was founded by Franz Joseph Popp, Karl Rapp, Camillogastiogline in 1916 and is now owned by Quandit family.

    17. If you notice BMW CSL, you can recognize that this type of car has successfully applied the concept of bat mobile. It has spoilers and arches. The concept is very great for people who love a sport car.
  • The VW and Audi DSG Transmission- Reliability, Longevity and more.

    Thank you so much for visiting our page. Hopefully the info below is interesting and helpful. If you find this info useful we would really appreciate your support. 

    We offer this along with many other helpful DIYs to the VW and Audi community. The only thing we ask for in return is your support when you are ready to make a purchase. Your support allows us to continue to commit the resources to create pages just like this one.

    The VW and Audi DSG Transmission has been around since 2004 when it was first rolled out in the 04 Beetle TDI Model. At first the transmission was only in a few models, and more recently it has become more widely used. As these transmission are becoming common place, more people shopping for used cars are stumbling upon them.
    VW and Audi DSG Transmission
    This leads people to wondering "What concerns should I have with the DSG Transmission?"

    It is very important to note that the DSG transmissions require regular fluid and filter changes. VW and Audi DSG transmission have a service interval of 40k miles (you can verify this in your owners manual). Performing this service is imperative to the life as well as the warranty on your DSG transmission.

    So lets first tackle reliability: The DSG transmission had a couple of issues during the first few years. They were almost all exclusively the same problem. The symptoms with the early DSG transmissions were delayed power then a bang causing the car to lurch forward. Generally this would happen when happen when starting from a stop. This issue was almost always fixed by the mechatronics unit. The issues with the early DSG transmissions has given many people pause, and understandably so.
    However most of the DSG Transmissions starting around 2008 had almost no issues at all. The early DSGs have mostly gotten a new Mechatronics unit, and the issues have been resolved. Once the bad ones are replaced they no longer seem to have issues.

    Now on to longevity: The longevity of the DSG transmission is yet to be seen. Currently it appears as though the DSG transmissions have solid longevity. Since the transmission is built like a manual, it is mechanically strong. The weak points that will be likely to fail will be the DSG Clutch Packs or the mechatronics unit. These are both replaceable (but expensive) parts. Neither of these parts have shown to be an common issue. From what a few experts in the VW field have told us, they have not been seeing any DSG failures these days. This leads us to believe that the DSG transmission has and will continue to have strong reliability.

    Here is a video from Jason at Engineering Explained. He paired with a great friend of ours Charles from Humble Mechanic to deliver this great video. The video is a little technical and it would be best to have a decent understanding of how a transmission works before watching. This video will show you how a DSG transmission works, why it shifts so fast, how it shifts so fast, and why people say the DSG is like a manual but an automatic:

    Here we have a DIY video that shows you how to perform a DSG service on your VW or Audi model. This DSG service should be performed at an interval of every 40k miles. Making sure you regularly service your DSG is important to retain any warranty or extended warranty on the transmission.

    If you ever have to file a claim with VW or a 3rd party warranty company they will almost certainly ask for records of the DSG Services. Be sure to note all the information about servicing your DSG Trans even if you are doing it yourself. If you decide to do this yourself you should keep a record of date the service was done, mileage, and a copy of the parts purchased. Making sure you purchase fluid that meets the spec required for your vehicle (all the DSG kits we offer meet this spec).
  • Check These Top 5 Great Audi Engines

    Over the years Audi has manufactured some truly remarkable engines, works of art. Though there have been several dozen amazing units, only a handful have really stood out over the years. 

    Today, we count off the 5 best Audi engines ever made, starting in the only way we know how:

    1. 2.2-liter five-cylinder engine (codename: GV/WR 07/80-07/87, MB/WX: 08-87-07/89)

    Yes, we are of course talking about the legendary five-cylinder. Found in the earliest Audi Quattro, the original 2,144 cc engine had a 10-valve SOHC design with a separate turbocharged and intercooler. It made 200 horsepower and 210 lb-ft of torque at 3500 rpm, moving the Quattro to 62 mph in 7.1 seconds and topping out at 137 mph. Audi eventually increased the size to 2,226 cc but power remained the same. The only difference was that torque kicked in a lot sooner and lower down in the rev range. The final edition kept its 2,226 cc displacement but the design was changed to a 20v DOHC setup. 
    Check These Top 5 Great Audi Engines
    Power went up to 220 hp, increasing the top speed to 143 mph. Adored by enthusiasts the world over, its unique and characteristic soundtrack is as recognizable as a Lamborghini V12 or the Corvette’s V8.

    2. 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine (codename: EA 113/827)

    The Audi A4 was the first car in the VW Group to wear the new 1.8T four-cylinder engine. In ‘standard’ form it develops 150 horsepower and 155 lb-ft of torque, but special editions of the unit modified by quattro GmbH reach as high as 180 hp and 173 lb-ft of torque. It’s considered to be one of the strongest four-cylinder engines to this very date, despite being over 20 years old at this point. It’s able of pushing out a lot of power on the stock internals and block alone with just a larger turbo and basic bolt-ons. For a four-cylinder, it also sounds amazingly well.

    3. 2.7-liter V6 engine (codename: APB for the North American market, AGB/AZB elsewhere)

    The B5 S4 wore what is arguably one of the best V6 units the world has ever seen. A 90-degree twin-turbo, third-generation V6 with more power than common sense. The engine utilizes a cast iron cylinder block along with two lightweight aluminum alloy heads and 30 valves. It’s capable of making 265 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque is standard form, but it was notoriously easy to modify. It wasn’t uncommon for owners to extract over 300 horsepower with just a simple remap. The B5 S4 was one of the fastest sedans at the time, with a 0-60 mph time of just 5.6 seconds and a top speed of 155.3 mph. It also sounds unholy on full chat, almost like a rally car.

    4. 3.6-liter V8 engine (codename: PT)

    Here’s a weird one. The 3.6-liter V8 is a relatively unknown engine due to the fact that it never really took off. It was only ever used on the Audi V8 (codenamed 4C) back in the late 80s and early 90s, but the rising cost of petrol saw it killed off. Which was a real shame, because it was an advanced engine for its time. We’re talking a 10.6:1 compression ratio, four valves per cylinder (32 in total), double overhead camshafts, common rail multi-point fuel injection and eight intake manifold-located injectors. The end result? 250 horsepower and 251 lb-ft of torque. Not a lot of power in today’s world, but definitely one of the most powerful Audis back in the day.

    5. 4.2-liter V8 engine (codename: BYH in Audi R8, CAU for the S5, BNS in B7 RS4, BAR for the Audi Q7 and BVJ for the C6 A6 and D3 A8)

    Although Audi made equally-good 32V and 40V variants of the same engine for their S4, S6, A8 and S8 models, the Cosworth-tweaked 40vT iteration made specifically for the C5 RS6 was a real monster of an engine. It got two parallel turbochargers, two side-mounted intercoolers and larger and modified intake and exhaust ports. The end result was 450 horsepower and a specific power output of 107 hp per liter. That was a record back then, and is an amazing figure to beat even today. 

    Most manufacturers are lucky to break the 80 hp/liter barrier, let alone 100.
  • Why Should Homeowners In Zimbabwe Go The Solar Way?

    There are many whys and wherefores to why homeowners should go solar but improving the environment and cutting energy costs are the most common motives.

    Today, many people understand and appreciate the fact that solar is a great home efficacy upgrade and are very keen to reduce their carbon footprint while also enhancing their property value.

    So, have you been thinking about the whole outlook of solar energy lately, and pondered if it would be a smart move to install solar panels in your house? Have you seen your neighbours going actively solar and wondered what it could be? Or you are looking for some economical alternative to the electricity? 
    Why Should Homeowners In Zimbabwe Go The Solar Way?
    Your motivations for going solar could be anything, economic, environmental, or personal, this substantial list of solar power benefits will have something for everybody.

    What Is Solar Energy?

    Solar originates from the ‘sun’ and solar energy is essentially the energy generated from heat and light radiations from the sun. This energy can be renewed into different energy forms, electricity or electrical energy is the most common one.

    Solar energy gained popularity ever since it was discovered. The main reason behind it’s growing popularity is that, it’s one of the cheapest and most reliable alternatives than other energy types.

    How Is Solar Energy Converted Into Electricity?

    To convert to solar power into electricity, solar panels are fixed on the roof of a house. These panels absorb the light and heat rays from the sun and store it until it’s converted into electricity by an installed inverter.

    Why Should Homeowners Go The Solar Way?

    1. It’s Free

    Well, literally Solar Energy, unlike other natural resources like water, comes completely FREE. No Government or Individual owns the sun’s energy; hence it can never be sold. You can access it anytime and anywhere. The only thing you need to keep in mind when designing your home is that the architecture is perfect to absorb all the sun’s goodness.

    2. Drastically Reduces Or Totally Eliminates Your Electricity Bills

    Electricity costs can make up for a large portion of your monthly expenses, with solar panel systems, you can generate free power for your home for entire 25+ year lifecycle. Also, even if you don’t manage to produce 100 % of the energy you consume, solar definitely helps in reducing a significant amount of your utility bills which means you’ll still save a lot of money.

    3. Less Dependence On The National Grid

    With solar energy linked to your house, your dependence on the national grid drops gradually, until the power from it is only used for activities that demand lots of current/power that solar may not supply readily.

    4. Great Return On Your Investment

    Don’t consider solar panels to be a matter of huge expense, instead, these are a great investment. They surpass the returns you expect from those mutual funds, stocks, and bonds. The credit going to substantial electricity bill savings.

    5. Increase Your Property Value

    Plush interiors, top-notch fittings, and fixtures, beautiful wallpapers, fancy landscaping etc. do you think these things add any value to your property? Of course not, these features rarely add any value to your property price. Multiple studies have confirmed that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes.

    6. Protect The Environment

    Buildings are responsible for a large amount of carbon emissions and going solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. A typical residential solar panel system eliminates 3-4 tons of carbon emissions each year, this is equivalent to planting over 100 trees yearly.

    Why Zimbabwe Needs More Solar?

    Solar energy is becoming more popular all around the world, and Zimbabwe is no exception. With just over 1,000 units per capita annual consumption, Zimbabwe is last among the top 10 developing and developed countries. Our country’s per capita energy consumption is almost a third of the average per capita consumption to grow in the contemporary world and almost one-twelfth of nations like USA, Canada & China.

    These figures prove that our country is going to need a lot more power than it currently produces to sustain the growth, development, and economy. This is going surely going to be one mammoth task. And a lot of it is going to be driven by the microgrid or Rooftop Solar. Hence, rooftop solar is the key solution to modern-day power needs.

    That’s why we say Go Solar, it’s time to design buildings that use solar energy positively. Learn more about Solar Architecture.

    Go Solar For A Bright Future

    So, if you have been speculating how important solar energy could be to you and your home, this is how. Always remember to use an expert company when installing your solar panels. Poor installation could result in accidents, fires, and energy misuse over time.
