What exactly is standard in the RX8? GS, GT?

Just wondering if any of you guys have a concrete list of what is standard in the 6-speed GS model, and in the GT model in Canada. I read on the mazda.ca website that LSD is only on GT model, whereas ive read that on the US site that LSD is included no matter what model, GS or GT. And also about the Bose Stereo, is all the models the same in all models? I am asking this question because I want to know if it is really worth it paying the extra 3000 for the GT model.

GS= CAD $36,795
GT= CAD $39,595

So far i have gathered that the GS (Basic) model will have at least:
-18" Wheels
-4 Wheel Disc Brakes with ABS
-Front and Side Airbags with Curtains
-A/C and Fog Lights

GT-Trim (Everything in Basic and):
-Heated Leather seats (Electronically Adjusted)
-Automatically-dimming rear view mirror
-Torsen LSD
-Dynamic Stability Control (DSC)
-Xenon headlamps

GT-S (Everything in Basic and GT and) (do not know the extra price on this model):
-Moonroof
-Nav and GPS

This is the info that I got from the Mazda.ca website. Just wondering if the stereo is indeed the same throughout all models, and the LSD does not seem to be included in GS. I dont really need all the luxury items such as leather seats and stuff in the GT and am probably looking at getting GS. Its really a good deal for that price for the kind of car im getting. The only sucky thing is that I want LSD and the VSC for control. Will be getting a 6-speed for sure, and maybe moving up to the GT model IF the extra 3000 is worth it. Any opinions guys? or new info on models?

Much appreciated!
