If the paint was worn out and the engine has never been cleaned, then I imagine all the rubber bits needs replaced. This isnt a car that was lovingly cared for. There is probably a lot of deferred maintenance waiting.
Seller says he spent $4800 for exterior re-do. I assume that means new paint and rubber. the photographs showing rubber look like good rubber, but there isn't enough close-ups to tell. I don't care that the engine isn't detailed, but to each his own. I think it's fairly high $$$ for a W108 sedan.
