Any Detailers/Polishers In Leicestershire that offer a service?

Hi Guys

My car is regularly cleaned and waxed by myself but its come to the time now where i need my paint corrected
My car has a few scratches and swirls that i am not sure i can remove without painting, the bonnet will defo need painting as it has a small dent in it, but the doors and rear quarters maybe be salvaged, i don't know?
Theres no way i am confident to purchase a sander etc and do it myself


Is there any members in the leicestershire area who does wet sanding/polishing etc that could take a look and give me a price what it would cost and what results i could expect compared to painting it
I live just outside loughborough

the car is a 1997 m3 e36 bmw, base colour is hellrot red

Thanks

If you fancied bringing it down to us we would be happy to advise on the best course of action. With a bit of warning i'm sure a cuppa could be arranged too.
