Restoring a 23 year old car

We have a 1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E, which is generally in good condition. It’s currently off the road at this time, but not due to a mechanical problem.
It would be nice to have it restored to somewhere near its "as new" condition.
Can you recommend any companies that could undertake this sort of work, with preference to ones that know something about Mercedes Benz?

Not worth it. A top condition original 190E 2.6 auto is now worth about £10,000. An average condition 190E 2.0 auto about £1000.
