Default Future suby owner looking for help/opinions between choices.

Hi. This is my first post here and look forward to being an active member of this community. I am in the market for a subaru and I am stuck between 3 choices.

08 Legacy GT 5speed manual w/ 39k miles at $20k.
- I like the luxurious feel it gives off while being sporty at the same time. To my understanding it has the same motor and tranny as the wrx and I may be wrong but it has the SI Drive which I am assuming its has the LSD of an STI only cause the sti also sports the SI Drive feature?

08 Wrx hatch w/13kmiles at $23k.
- Now the only reason why I am considering this car over the legacy cause I like the color better lol. Also cause of the fact it has a lower mileage. knowing the wrx its pretty much standard everything no si drive.. and not even sure it has lsd.

08 wrx sti hatch w/55k miles at $25k
- Now of course the sti and Im pretty sure to most of you this is a no brainer and I should get this one. But I am skeptical about getting it because of how many miles it already has. To be honest I do want this one the most of all the three.

Now with that said. Other than installing suspensions and lowering the car first ( I just hate stock height lol) I plan to upgrade the air filter, and pretty much put cobb stage 2 kit with it( unless of course anyone can recommend something better and cheaper) I just dont want to do it on a car with 50k and have it take a **** on me. Im not sure which one to go for as far as reliability with the mods taken into consideration and the current condition of the car.

I drive about 80 miles total back and to work 4-5 days a week over the highway. And i make a minimum of about 33k a year. so the price difference between the three is not too much of a deal. Look forward to hearing you guys have to say. Thanks.
