Any second gen Legacy GT bumper will fit over your bumper cover. So will an outback, you just wont have mounting points for the fogs on the bumper beam.
If you get a Legacy L or Ts bumper, it will fit no problem, but the grille is shorter and will need the accommodating grille, as the outback/gt grille height wont allow it.
But you can put an L grille on a GT.
If you can find a Legacy Brighton, it will have the same bumper.
Like I said, all look similar and fit just need to switch some simple stuff around to fit.
Good luck, and let us know what you find.
