Thanks Ste, I have just sent him an enquiry for cost etc. my engine bay is quite filthy so what the initial clean to be done properly then I can manage it from there. Only had the car a few week and the previous owner was a 53 yo woman so as you can imagine cleaning the engine bay wasn't high on her list of priorities.

Why don't you just do it yourself mate?It's not hard once the initial clean is done then just stay on top of it to keep it looking good longer,here's a good site that can give you enough advice how to do it and keeping your car clean in general:http://www.polishedswiss.com/engine-bay/4529645625.SJ.
