What should a 2005 WRX idle at?

As the subject reads really, was just wondering what sort of revs it should idle at.

There's one up for sale I've seen and one of the photos shows the revs at 550 and I just thought that seemed a bit low.

Is that normal?

Cheers



(apologies if it's a stupid question, I'm a noob! )

Haven't actually seen the car yet mate, it was just a photo I saw of one advertised.
I wanted to ask the question on here to see if that was normal before I went to view it!

dont bother ate, walk away, plenty out there. There's multiple reasons why it could idle badly from sensor to something more serious.

600 is normal on mine once warm,
low idle could be iacv dirty, or even a cone filter fitted.
