I've wanted a WRX since I was about 12, and every time I see one I jokingly ask the owner about it, and this Sunday I went over to my friend's house to watch the Saints game, there was a blue WRX parked out front. I walked in and turns out my friend is trying to unload it after losing his job. 2007 WRX with 44k miles on it for 16,000 with a stage 2 clutch and tinted windows.
I'm taking it in this week to get everything checked out, particularly compression tests because I would be the fourth owner. I've checked out the history report, and it's clean except for minor accident in 2007 where the driver re-ended someone, so the front bumper has been replaced. Everything else is original to the car.
I've read through the stickies on buying a used WRX, but are there any particular things I should look out for? Particularly considering this is the third owner and the only upgrade being the clutch kind of throws me off... Is that worth concern?
