Head Gasket Replacement and Engine Check

Hello everyone,

I'm located in Essex/East London and have a 1998 SLK 230 Kompressor (AMG)

The head gasket has gone and I want to get it done but while I'm at it, I would like to get the engine completely checked over and brought up to a great standard.

I know that it's going to come to a few quid but I want to keep the car and just want a good job done.

Are there any engineers that could do this for me at a reasonable price but with the emphasis on quality, honesty and passion for doing a job right?

Any help that you could share with me would be greatly appreciated.

I am prepared to travel.
