Newbie questions!!!

You're actually looking for an 05-07 Legacy GT wagon or 05-09 OBXT. There was no 08-09 LGT wagon in the US.
Other than exterior appearance the main difference is suspension. If you want a decent handling car you get the GT. If ground clearance is a concern, you get the XT.
I'm not sure about the Outback, but the LGT was only available with a manual transmission in 2005.

The Outback XT (OBXT) has sexy fender flares and is wider. It also have bigger foglight, different grill and taillights.

The Outback XT also has a different roof rack to go along with the fender flares and bigger fog lamps. When lowered, the OBXT is much sexier than the LGT imo and I wish I had a lowered OBXT instead of my LGT wagon. But its all personal preference
