List differences between USDM and JDM specs

I figured it would be nice to know the differences between the JDM BRZ and the USDM BRZ. Here are a few that I've noticed.

USDM BRZ has amber turn signals. JDM has chrome.
USDM BRZ has red rear lamps. JDM has chrome.
USDM has smaller exhaust tips.
USDM has the 'Subaru' emblem on the trunk. JDM doesn't have this.
JDM gets frameless rear view mirror. USDM gets standard rear view mirror.
Both have different GPS/head units.
USDM BRZ includes the LED lights above the fogs. They're optional on the JDM.
USDM is supposed to have a 'better' exhaust - will need more info on this.
BRZ Limited comes standard with a rear deck spoiler. It is optional on JDM.

I believe the USDM weighs slightly more.

Turn signals? The turn signals are in the headlights. You might be talking about the side reflectors?

USDM cars have 8-speakers, JDM have 0, 2, or 6 depending on trim.

Aw crap I just realized the 0,2,6 was for Japan. I thought that was a mistake or something since the US had 8. I don't want to pay for a freaking 8 speaker stereo
