Default High Mile STI?

Looking to buy a 2012 STI with 72k miles as a daily driver and to drive from Florida to Pennsylvania about once a month, therefore putting lots of miles on over the next few years. Any thoughts on putting high miles on an STI vers the "normal" WRX model? I know the typical WRX models can run into high miles with no problems but the STI? The car is stock and I don't intend on do any high perf mods to it...

Thanks!

Get a conservative tune to fix the AFR and it'll be fine.

Risk is inherent in any Subie turbo that is starting to rack up miles. The more info you have on service history and mods, the better.

AFR? Is that Air Fuel Ratio?
