Yes I'm looking to buy one that is untouched, anything to look out for when I'm doing so?

make sure the turbo heatshield is there and doesn't look like its been cut. if its been cut chances are he had a downpipe on it. but if i bought a used wrx i would pretty much expect it to have been modded; if its stock i would assume he returned it to stock before selling it
