I'm getting into a 5MT OBXT next week (in lieu of my current 05 LGT wagon with a 5EAT). My focus was more on condition than anything else, so when I found a gem I bit on it. Opening yourself up to the idea of looking for an outback and lowering it will give you a few more options. The real differences between the LGT and OBXT is in the brakes, suspension, and some body spacers, bolts, etc. A really aggressive drop on an OBXT will certainly require a few tweeks to keep the suspension geometry in tact, but it's not impossible.

Personally, I'd rather have an OBXT in great shape with low miles and deal with a few suspension headaches than have an LGT in mediocre condition.
