    New member seeking some advice.

    Hello. I have a few questions about an 08 sti that I may be interested in. I currently drive an 09 mazdaspeed3 but have always wanted a sti. Was checking the local dealer for a wrx and they had the sti.(It's even the color I wanted, WR blue with gold wheels. Lol)

    As I said its an 08 but its in immaculate condition and has just 24600 on the odometer. The dealer's asking price is around 26000. I've read about some horror stories about engine problems for this model year. Are concerns valid? Anything i should lookout for?

    I appreciate any and all advice as I'm new to Subaru's. Thanks in advance for helping a noob and possible future subaru owner.

    As an FYI, dealerships were giving the '08 STI away back in the day ($5K off sticker + 0% for 60 months).

    Engine problems have plagued 07+ MYs. Have a third party do a compression/leakdown test to verify the motor is healthy
