Buying an 06 STI

Hi

I am looking at buying an 06 STI at the weekend from a private seller (my first Impreza) I know to look at the basics in a second hand car along with the V5, Mot's, service history and do a vechicle check but is there any things/faults I need to look out for with the car that are unique to Impreza's of this age?

Re: Buying an 06 STI

Also might be worth checking the engine mounts think in that year they used the plastic mounts liquid filled for less vibrations entering the cabin but think they recalled them as if you launched the car hard they can snap so they replaced them with the the normal heavy duty rubber ones they always used you'd prorberbly know if the plastic mounts have broke as the vibrations in the car are pretty bad
