Looking at buying this ‘08 hatch. Do you notice anything?
Also, anything I should look / listen for specific to this model? Is this a good year of WRX in general? TIA!

I have an 08STi, so this is just general advice.

I would track down what that yellow line is on the passenger side since it doesn't look OEM.
I would question why someone is selling a car and they didn't make any attempt to clean (or cover up) any deficiencies. For my 08, I've already changed plus, timing belt, water pump, accessory belts, coolant, and brake fluid 3x. My air pump valves rusted shut, so I disabled them (via AP and fuses) and installed blocking plates. Other preventive maint/mods I did were Group N motor mounts, and trans mounts, with shifter bushings.

Consider checking thosr items, or at least know what their deterioration would cause and manifest.
