It would make my Marianne's world to own a good condition Renault 4. She has always wanted one as it resonates with her french upbringing and now, I hope, I have the funds to make her wish come true. Can anyone help please? We are based in London but I am happy to travel! Marcus

Hi there. Maybe give Derek Flavell at Renospeed a call. Derek specialises in Renault 4s, repairing, rebuilding and servicing, and often has nice cars for sale. He's based at Lewisham, so perhaps not far from you. His web address is info@renospeed.co.uk

Regards Brian.

Hi there, no problem Marcus. I hope you find the right car for your lady. She has good taste, as the 4L is a brilliant car to own. Good luck with your quest, and please keep us up to speed with how you get on.

Regards Brian.

Thanks Brian, we're just on our way back from Croatia, where there are very many Renault 4's on the road (especially in korcula). I gather they made them here under licence from Renault. I have made a mental note that it's probably a good place to get spares! I will contact Derek tomorrow and also follow-up on the other post of the R4 for sale. I figure I've got a lot to learn quickly to ensure I spend the money wisely on the right car for marianne but it's great to know there are so many enthusiasts out there who are prepared to share their experience! Thanks again. Marcus

Hi Marcus!
Hope you had nice time in Croatia!

R4 here is still everyday car. Especially in coastal part of Croatia.
It is narrow, useful little car that can carry big loads so people in Dalmatia love it.

And winters are mild so better preserved from rust (which basically kill R4)
