  • 2021 BMW M5 gets revised looks

    2021 BMW M5 gets revised looks and is more imposing than ever! The facelifted BMW M5 is one of the most impressive super sedans currently on sale, and this new gallery in UK specification showcases it perfectly. Compared to the pre-facelift M5, the revamped one has a revised front fascia with a new grille, more aggressive headlights, and a beefier bumper. The rear end has also been freshened up with redesigned taillights and a new diffuser. While these styling alterations are relatively minor, they do transform the look of the super sedan. Some minor tweaks have also been made to the interior, including the fitment of an enlarged 12.3-inch infotainment system complete with Android Auto and cloud-based navigation. There is also a tweaked centre console and two illuminated buttons, one for the M Mode and one for tweaking the vehicle setup. The interior of the M5 Competition pictured looks particularly impressive thanks to the luscious black leather and array of carbon fibre accents. Like the pre-facelift model, the 2021 M5 is powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8 which in standard form is good for 592 hp and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque. Competition is a little more potent as power has been increased to 617 horses. Both M5 and M5 Competition models feature an eight-speed automatic transmission sending power through an all-wheel-drive system that includes 2WD, 4WD and 4WD Sport modes. The M5 Competition hits 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.3 seconds, while the ‘regular’ M5 needs 3.4 seconds to hit the same mark.

  • How to use a Jigsaw

    Learning how to use a Jigsaw is a walk in the park thanks to this informative article! All that’s left to do is swing past our store to buy yourself a new Jigsaw! In our opinion, the jigsaw ranks a close second to the cordless drill as must-have do-it-yourself power tools. They are very versatile and work perfectly for around the house fixes and small woodworking projects. Even if you’ve never used a saw before the jigsaw is extremely intuitive and also safer to operate than most power saws. Children can also be taught how to use a jigsaw and can be one of the first power tools they learn to use. But as with any power tool, they should be respected and handled with care as well and proper safety equipment should be used when operating them. Jigsaws are perfect for cutting pine boards and plywood both of which will be used extensively in many of the DIY projects we are going to post. You can also buy saw blades that will cut laminate, tile and metal. Before using your jigsaw make sure you have the correct blade and your workspace is clear of any obstructions. You’ll also want to consider using gloves and we highly recommend wearing safety goggles to protect your eyes from sawdust. When you start your cut make sure the shoe of the saw which is the flat guide is firmly placed on the cutting material and start the blade before moving it into the wood. Mark out your cuts beforehand and keep your fingers far away from the blade. Also be aware of what is below your cutting material so it doesn’t get snagged by the blade such as a cord, table or pant leg. With more experience, you’ll get the hang of using your jigsaw and learn how to cut corners (literally) and make smooth cuts around edges For more information: Call or WhatsApp between 8am – 5pm weekdays only (082) 569-1394 | (011) 789-4411 / 011 036-0200 | marco@midasrandburg.co.za | 191 Bram Fischer Drive, Randburg.

  • The importance of good car maintenance

    In the tough economic times, we are living in today, the importance of good car maintenance is more relevant now than ever. Whether it is a company or personal car, this advice applies to all. Now is as good a time as any to make sure that you keep up-to-date with regular maintenance services, believes Les Mc Master, Chairman of the Motor Industry Workshop Association (MIWA). “If buying a new car isn’t a priority for financially feasible right now then ensuring your current vehicle or companies feel of vehicles is properly maintained should be,” said Mc Master. To be perfectly honest, if you own a fleet of company vehicles this article might help save you thousands of rands down the road. “Regular maintenance is key to extending the life of your car and will result in a better resale price at the end of the day. It is also a cost saver as regular servicing will help you pick up smaller repairs early enough to prevent more serious and costly faults occurring further down the line.” He advises motorists to keep a close eye on the car’s manual and schedule maintenance accordingly. “Even better, set a recurring reminder on your phone to alert you to get your vehicle checked annually. Keeping up with your car’s recommended maintenance schedule can help avoid costly problems with your cooling system, drivetrain, suspension and other components.” Motorists should also ensure their car is serviced by a reputable workshop that only uses quality oil, fluids, and parts. If you are more of a DIY kind of guy and maintain your vehicle your self, the same rules apply. Only using high-quality replacement and services parts, oil and other fluids which are all readily available at affordable prices from us, at Randburg Midas. “While it might sound like an attractive option to service your car as cheaply as possible, the financial implications, in the long run, will outweigh the apparent short-term benefit. It’s never wise to scrimp on your car’s maintenance costs.” In addition to regular maintenance, there are a number of other things motorists can do to extend a car’s life. Motorists should regularly check the level of fluids in their vehicles, such as the antifreeze, oil, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, and brake fluid. These items are conveniently available from Randburg Midas. He also advises motorists to monitor the thickness of their vehicle’s brake pad…
