Agreed. Owning a MB or BMW out of warranty can be an expensive lesson.
Not as many issues with a Lexus.

I've wondered myself.
I'm on my original set with 334K miles on them.
They are still soft and I see no signs of hardness.
Probably a good preventative measure.

Belt replacement is maintenance item, but the rear valve cover leaking is a common issue on this engine.
If you fix them, the car can last a while.
How much are you paying for the car?

Clunk sounds like the rear bottom motor mount.
Easy way to tell is to take the front right tire off and look in for the motor mount.
If there are cracks on the rubber than its time for a new one.

I would try to negotiate a better deal but for $2900 what do you really expect?
As long as the engine is in good condition and you don't notice any real issues it's really not a big deal.

I'm in a similar situation with my black ES300.
I want to change the color from black to white but a good paint job is gonna cost more than what the car is worth.
Not a good investment.
