I've had this happen on the left and right front turn signals at different times. I replaced the turn signal bulbs and the fast blinking issue was fixed.

Happened as far as I'm aware, 1,000 on the dot. Bringing it to dealer tomorrow. Not really the worst thing in the world... just an annoying sound and annoying in the back of my mind

I don't have my '08 WRX anymore but when I did my issue arose around 4-5k miles. I replaced them with Sylvania Silverstar's and never had the issue again. Kept the car 'till i had 28k on the odometer.
