I got a "good vibe" from my ebay seller too, but he sold me a lemon that was barely-cared for. U.S. law (and probably your state law) requires the seller reveal all flaws to the buyer, because the buyer is purchasing the item without an opportunity to inspect it himself. I would tell that to the Seller, so he will reveall all he knows.
Note this law also applies to "as is" items. For example a seller can not sell a car with a nonoperational engine and then say, "Sorry no refund... car sold as is." He has to reveal the fact of the dead engine to the buyer, and if he does not, the courts will issue a refund (plus money wasted on travel and legal expenses).
OWN: 61mpg Insight (greenercars.org score: 57)
both blue and silver,
and a 45mpg BeetleTDI (score: 47).
However, I am prepared to live with it as Insights with mileage as low as this one come up very rarely in the UK as there are now less than a couple of hundred left here I belive, and I'm pretty sure this is possibly the lowest mileage one left.
If the colour becomes too much I'll simply get a re trim.

The orange interior won't be much of a problem as you shouldn't be looking at it whilst driving the car! Fingers crossed the seller is on the level.
