At 4Car.co.uk, we take great pride in being a group of car enthusiasts that are experienced and able to provide expert advice that you can trust regarding car products in the UK. We also aim to provide thorough tutorials on how to use the products that we review as well as producing guides or providing advice regarding the UK car market.
All the content that you find on 4Car.co.uk is written by our team and no one else. We don’t allow third party content onto the site. This is to ensure that you as the reader can trust the unbiased recommendations and advice that we provide.
Unlike other websites that push any products for the most financial gain, we are the complete opposite.
As we are car enthusiasts/completely obsessed with cars, we are able to go into far more depth with regards to our recommendations and advice. As you read our content, you will see this type of knowledge instantly when compared to other websites that claim to be enthusiasts.
We also thoroughly research and test the products (where possible). As you can see in the photo, that's Dan (the main author of 4Car) testing out the latest snow foam.
As a team, we fully understand the UK car market and always aim to provide recommendations upon the ultimate product, best overall or budget options that are actually worth buying.
Where possible, we also go out of our way to purchase the product and test it out ourselves on our own cars. Due to the fact that our team own a variety of cars (over 40 cars between us all), we are able to thoroughly test products upon an array of vehicles.
Other than drooling over cars that we can’t afford on AutoTrader or PistonHeads, we do actually spend many hours curating the latest products to review. We also regularly go through all the articles on the site to ensure that our recommendations are the latest and still the best. As you can imagine, there are many new products being released each month, so it's a major task itself.
As well as testing and reviewing products, we also enjoy creating “how to” guides. Our aim is to ensure we cover all the basic car maintenance tasks as well as other jobs that we carry out on our very own cars. We also create general car guides that cover the UK market as well as advice on anything car or motoring related.
Due to the research, content creation, testing and quality checks, this does mean some articles can take a few weeks to produce. However, this is what makes them worth reading and far more trustworthy when compared to other websites where the writers have probably never picked up a spanner in their life!
For example, take a look at some of these "How To" articles:
These are just a few examples of our team getting their hands dirty. You can also see from the majority of our images we use on our posts that they are clearly taken by our team as we are using a product. A lot of other websites simply use stock (paid for) images to give the illusion that they have actually used the product. This really frustrates us as a team due to the amount of effort and time we put into producing our content and images used upon the site.
Dan has been a car enthusiast ever since he can remember and has owned well over 50 cars since getting his driving license in 2010. The current fleet of cars include a mixture of classics (mostly old German cars), a “mobile skip”/load lugger, daily driver and even a 911 GT3. However, as you can imagine, the fleet of cars gets bigger each year.
The reason for creating this website is purely due to the lack of UK car enthusiast driven websites that offer product reviews and “how to” guides. If you are looking for a part or tutorial, you want to read an article posted by an enthusiast and not a random journalist. This is the unique selling point of 4Car.co.uk and you can tell from reading our content that we are enthusiasts that know and use the products. The fact that we take photos of us testing the products as well as using them is a clear sign that our recommendations are something that you can trust. If you want to keep up to date with our content, we regularly post on our Instagram page, which is even more proof of our product testing.
