Default Which to Buy? BH GT differences, brakes, etc

Hi all,
I'm looking to buy a 2000+ Legacy GT wagon 5MT, but I'm not sure which year to look for.
Did all years of the GT get the same front rotor size? I know the L had different sizes in different years. If the GT had different rotors, is there a different prop valve?
Did all years of the GT get an LSD?
Power seat? I know that the GT limited sedan got leather, but either is fine with me.
I think all years got the moonroof(s) standard.
I'll probably replace the HU right away, so audio isn't a concern.

Any other gear that maybe the early models didn't get?

Thanks,
-Paul

Thank you!!!! This is the kind of info I've been looking for!!
In short, it looks like the GT always had an LSD, but only had 10.7" brakes in 00, 01 and 02. They got 11.7" brakes for 2003 and 2004, but the earlier cars are easily upgraded with the caliper bracket and the larger rotor. So I can look for any year GT!

Thank you,
-Paul

I did the bracket and rotor upgrade... these guys were very helpful:

I used Akebono ceramic pads, courtesy of TireRack, and COBB stainless lines.

They haul you down, right quick!

LetItSnow:
are you talking fronts or rears you upgraded?
What did you use for parts? WRX brackets + rotors? Thats what i'm looking to do. About how much did it cost, if i may ask?

I did the front brakes... The back ones are good enough, IMHO. I got the larger rotors and brackets here:
http://www.subaruwrxparts.com/gc8-braking.html
Don't mind that it says it's for the GC... it bolts on just the same. Rest assured, you will not be bolting on any 15 inch wheels after this mod!
Brackets & rotors: $225 + ship
Akebono pads: $65/axle + ship ( www.tirerack.com )
