I found this 2003 Subaru Legacy Touring GT-B S-Edition on goo-net. The want is strong.

This one features a 280 hp EJ208 with a 5-speed manual transmission.

This S-Edition features a few nice enhancements over a “standard” S-Edition.

It also features a few not-so-nice enhancements.

Personally, that lower-tier spoiler needs to go. So does the S-Edition badge that I believe is from a much newer S-Edition Forester (SH).

The interior looks inviting, and the seats look comfortable.

This S-Edition also features a Tein Electronic Damping Force Control (EDFC) system. From what I can tell, this controller allows adjustment of the damping settings of the shock absorbers. I don’t know much about this type of setup, but it seems like a neat concept. This also probably means this S-Edition no longer has Bilstein shock absorbers (the “B” in GT-B).

Here you can see the stepper motors for the EDFC system. You can also see how cramped the engine bay appears. I do question the aftermarket intake tube (the box appears stock), and what appears to be extra wires attached to the battery.

If it was after April 2028, it would be on a boat by now. The price ($2,330) and mileage (~60,000 miles) are very tempting. Tempting enough to overlook any minor issues it may be hiding.
