Sounds like a good history and a looked after car. Given that it has Honda history, I'd just drive it and enjoy it.
Keep a close eye on oil as they like a sip or two of oil, expect a few rattles from the scuttle panel plastics on the windscreen (check the wiki on here for very easy DIY fixes), try not to rip your hair out when the seat doesn't return to its previous position after being tilted forwards to allow people in and out the back (as they never did return to previous), expect the aircon to need a top up if nothing in history (if its not ice cold), check that the last service included the valve clearances being adjusted (its a 70k mile service item IIRC). Rattles underneath are likely heat shields, especially the one over the exhaust back box which itself may have corroded mounts - I had to have one welded back onto the pipe when it snapped off.
Can't think of much else. I bought mine on 82k in Jan '19 to use as a "station car" and found myself using it in preference to the 2017 S3 that we have, so have now covered 11k since then in it!!! I had to replace the OEM HID bulbs as they were flickering over rough ground (£35 each), its now getting due a service, clutch is feeling well past its best and I am renewing the front struts this weekend (retaining OEM spec) as one is leaking and knocking.
