560sl leaky valves

I have a '87 560sl with 89,000miles. I've driven it the last 30,000. It has been a well maintained car. Since Feb I am now on my second set of plugs because of leaky valves. My new mechanic says I'll need the whole valve job, including timing chain, around $4000. He also stated my engine mounts and brackets were gone, another $800.
From everything I've read I fear the diagnosis is correct. However, as a girl, I'd like another opinion and any referrals to a great mechanic in the Dallas, TX area.
I love the car and want to keep it and drive it for a long time, I just want to find someone I can trust to work on it.

Thanks guys
