Doesn't this list seem real drastic for a car with only 35,000 miles?
At this point, if the car was maintained and is running well, I'd do and oil change (if not done in the last 3-5,000 miles) and and check the air filter. Then I'd make sure that the sub-frame was checked.
As the car was bought from the OP's uncle I'd ask him for his maintenance records.
I agree to leave the color alone, it ain't bad, and it will grow on the OP.
By the way, a good claying and wax will make it shine like a milliion bucks - OP is sure to like it then.
Just my humble opinion.
