Hey guys,

As the title says, I just got an 07 STI w/ 32k miles on it. The car as far as I can tell has been left completely stock. There seems to be a small amount of weather corrosion on the undercarriage but other than that does not seem to be any issues. Do you guys have any suggestions on any routine maintenance I should be performing since the car is 12 years old? Should I be replacing the timing belt, drive belt, flush all my fluids, air-oil separator? I am not looking into doing any heavy mods on the vehicle yet, would just like to perform all the routine maintenance prior. Any feedback would be helpful.
Thanks!

Timing belt absolutely needs to be done unless you are certain it has been done within the last 6 years.

Fluid, great idea. Be sure to add the rear diff to that list.

Consider refreshing the bushings. Rubber bushings can dry out and crack. Check the dampers too -- the gas can diffuse out of the tubes over time, not just from use.

Verify that all fuel lines and vac lines are in good condition and not cracked/leaking
