I already know I need to replace my center console with a newer one as my '04 model is in rough shape. What other parts (cosmetic or mechanical) were upgraded through the years and are worth transplanting into my '04?

Also, what makes an R a GT?

thanks,
Brandon

GT is the automatic. Don't remember - is yours a manual or an auto?
GT=Geartronic (sorta-kinda manual shifting [NOT]).

Ah gotcha. Yeah, mine is an automatic. As someone who has almost always owned manual transmission cars, I can't stand the fake manual things and never use it.

Center console/armrest is the best upgrade for the interior

For the exterior...05+ jeweled tail lights, rear bumper, painted door/fender/front bumper trims and lower side moldings.

However, I do like the 04 (the largest number produced) with its telltale black moldings and different rear bumper, if complete on rear with the little exhaust surround, and kept clean and black.
rear bumper, painted door/fender/front bumper trims and lower side moldings.
In addition, the 05+ power steering reservoir is a better, non-leaking design.
