It's getting inspected as we speak, I did some minor inspections and the only problems i found were the cupholders are somewhat stuck, and the engine makes a ticking noise when I was parked with the windows opened. I went to the dealership to test drive another one with the same model year and it didn't have the ticking noise, but I asked the salesman about the ticking noise they said it is completely normal for some to have the ticking noise.

Yes, you can get the recalls done at anytime, just less hassle if they were already completed.

The ticking noise is totally normal if it is related to the high flowing fuel injectors. Personally, I've heard all 335s to have it and it is most apparent at idle, especially windows open.
